  1. Gary Oldman said his screaming of the now iconic line 'Bring me everyone!' in the film 'The Professional' was improvised to make the director Luc Besson laugh. The yelled take is the one used in the film.

  2. Luc Besson originally wrote the part of "Ruby Rhod" in The Fifth Element for Prince. Designer Jean Paul Gaultier presented Prince a drawing of the costume but Prince was offended when he confused Jean Paul's accent for cursing at him. Prince had to turn down the part due to scheduling conflicts

  3. Luc Besson started writing The Fifth Element in 1975, when he was 16, and had a 400 page script by 1991. The movie finally went into production after the successful release of Leon: The Professional, in 1995, when Bruce Willis agreed to "come to an arrangement" on his remuneration.

  4. The trailer for the 2017 sci-fi movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, is the first time a Beatles song has ever been used in a movie trailer. This is mainly because Paul McCartney is a fan of director Luc Besson's works and happily agreed to let them use the song "Because".

  5. The actress that played Diva Plavalaguna in 5th element was married to Director Luc Besson at the age of 15 when he was 31 and had their first child when she was 16

  7. Luc Besson, the director of the Fifth Element, had been in a relationship with Maïwenn Le Besco, who played the Diva Plavalaguna, for six years when filming commenced. He left her for Mila Jovovich, who played Leeloo, during filming.

  8. The original draft of Luc Besson's 1994 film Leon included an outright sex scene with the 12 to 13-year-old Matilda character and the much older Leon. This scene (and several others) were removed from the US release after making test audiences, as well as others, extremely uncomfortable.

  9. When he was 32, Luc Besson started dating 15 year old Maïwenn Le Besco. She claimed this inspired his film "Léon: The Professional".
