(1928- )
   film actor, director
   Jeanne Moreau, who achieved international fame with her enigmatic performances in some of the most influential French films of the 1950s and 1960s, was born in Paris, where she studied acting and drama. She debuted on the stage (comédie-française, Théâtre National Populaire) and played in several screen roles (Touchezpas augrisbi, La Reine Margot) before becoming the star of the New Wave (Nouvelle Vague) cinema under the direction of louis malle (Ascenseur pour l'échafaud and Les Amants, 1958), roger vadim (Les Liaisons dangereuses I960, 1959), and François truffaut, in whose influential Jules et Jim she memorably played the role of catherine. Drawn also to idiosyncratic and unconventional films, she appeared in a number of movies directed by her first husband, Jean-Louis Richard (Mata Hari, Le Corps de Diane), and others directed, produced, or written by orson Welles, marguerite duras, Elia Kazan, Joseph Losey, Luis Bunuel (Le Journal d'une femme de chamber, 1964), and William Wenders (Bis ans Ende der Welt, 1991). She also directed (Lumière, 1976) and continued her stage career. in January 2000, Moreau became the first woman inducted into the Académie des beaux-arts.
