Bill Murray is notorious for going stag, but the 64-year-old Murray seemed to be making a move on French actress, Catherine Deneuve.
Murray was dining at the Sunset Tower Hotel’s Sunset Bar on Friday where Deneuve was also dining separately with a group of friends.
Once Murray spotted her, according to Page Six, he “went over and flirted with her.” Sources were unclear about exactly what Murray was doing to flirt, but when you’re the star of such comedy classics as Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, and What About Bob?, one would think he wouldn’t have to try too hard.

The French icon caught Murray’s eye because, as sources stated, she looked “amazing.” Deneuve was said to have “smoked about 50 times during her dinner, so everyone got to admire her beauty each time she [went] out on the terrace.”
The twice divorced Murray has been linked to Jennifer Butler and Margaret Kelly in the past before admittedly choosing to be single.

In an interview with Howard Stern as seen on Vanity Fair, Murray explained his reason for being single, “But there’s a lot that I am not doing that I need to do.”
Murray added that, “I don’t have a problem connecting with people. My [issue] is connecting with myself. If I am not really committing myself to that, then it’s better that I don’t have a different person.”
When asked to expand about what is stopping Murray from committing to himself, the St. Vincent star said, “What stops [any of] us is we’re kinda really ugly if we look really hard. We’re not who we think we are. We’re not as wonderful as we think we are. It’s a little bit of a shock… it’s hard.”
So did Bill Murray think that he was too ugly to be with Catherine Deneuve?
Deneuve, the 71-year-old blonde French bombshell, began an acting career at the age of 13. The award winning actress was even chosen by Empire magazine in 1995 as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history. She was married for a short time from 1965 to 1972 but never remarried.
So could the wacky, wonderful, and completely lovable Bill Murray ever really have a chance with French bombshell, Catherine Deneuve?
