Catherine Deneuve (born October 22 1943) is a French actress, born in Paris, France.

Born Catherine Dorléac to the actor Maurice Teynac (né Dorléac) and his wife Renée Deneuve, she made her movie debut in the 1956 film "Les Collegiennes," when she was still a teenager (her elder sister, Françoise Dorléac, 1942-1967, was a popular actress before dying in a car crash). Her breakthroughs came with the musical film Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg) (Jacques Demy, 1964), the late Surrealist masterpiece Belle de Jour (Luis Buñuel, 1967), and the Franco-English production Repulsion (Roman Polanski, 1965).

She won the César Award for Best Actress in 1981 for her performance in Le Dernier métro. She won the César Award for Best Actress a second time for her starring role in the 1992 film, Indochine and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for the same performance.

She is a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador and is the mother of two children: Christian Vadim (born 1963), by her relationship with the director Roger Vadim, and Chiara Mastroianni (born 1972), by her four-year relationship with Marcello Mastroianni. She has been married once, from 1965 to 1972, to the British photographer David Bailey.

She was also nominated for a César Award for her roles in:

  • 2001 - 8 Women (8 Femmes)
