Author Biography
Deneuve, Catherine (Author)
Catherine Deneuve, born 22 October 1943, is a French actress. She was born Catherine Fabienne Dorléac in Paris, as the third of four daughters to French stage and screen actor Maurice Dorléac and actress Renée Deneuve.

Deneuve was 13 when she began her film career with a small role in Les Collégiennes (1956). She remained active in European films during the 1960s and the 1970s, though she limited her appearances in American movies of the period to The April Fools (1969) and Hustle (1975). Her starring roles at the time were featured in such films as Tristana (1970) and A Slightly Pregnant Man (1973, opposite Marcello Mastrioanni). In the 1980s, Deneuve's films included François Truffaut's Le Dernier métro (1980, which garnered her the César Award for Best Actress) and Tony Scott's The Hunger (1983). In 1993 she won the César Award for Best Actress again for her role in Indochine.

Deneuve was the face of Chanel No. 5 in the 1970s and caused sales of the perfume to soar in the United States, so much so that the American press, captivated by her charm, nominated her as the world's most elegant woman. Deneuve has also been involved with various charities in the fight against AIDS and cancer. 030
