Catherine Deneuve is a beautiful French actress, whose career has spanned her lifetime. Her talent and beauty intact, she has managed to go from innocent young woman to Femme Fatale, to the older sensual woman who remains vital to the story and life. She has always played multi-dimensional characters and she embodies the mysterious.
In Bel du Jour, she plays a housewife, who ultimately becomes a woman of “sex for hire”.
My own personal favorite movie of hers was Mississippi Mermaid with Jean-Paul Belmondo. She is the mysterious woman in this movie and the poster is gorgeous.
Catherine represented the French symbol for Liberty, Marianne, from 1985 to 1988.
In the 1970’s the American press was so fascinated by her, she was nominated for the world’s most elegant woman.
She has been nominated and won many awards for her performances. She once said that her favorite movie of herself was The Umbrellas of Cherbourg because it was a musical.
