Catherine Deneuve (French IPA: [katʁin dəˈnœv], born October 22, 1943, in Paris, France) is an Academy Award-nominated French actress, who made her reputation playing a series of beautiful ice maidens for various directors, including Luis Buñuel and Roman Polanski.
Deneuve, who was often described as the most beautiful woman in the world, is usually presented in France as a warm and rather scatty person, beneath an icy, controlled exterior.
