Birkin Finally Accepts French Gong

Veteran actress and singer JANE BIRKIN fiercely rejected the LEGION D'HONNEUR two years ago (02) - but has delighted the French government by finally accepting an honorary gong from them.

But Birkin is devastated that her mother actress JULIA CAMPBELL - who recently died - will not be able to see the ceremony.

The 57-year-old's agent explains, "It's for promoting French culture abroad and also for supporting the general entente cordiale. Her father received the Legion d'Honneur, and she didn't think that what she had done was the same."
