A start in life
Catherine Deneuve was born on October 22, 1943 in Paris, the son of actor Maurice Dorl?ac and Ren?e Deneuve. She was the third of four daughters, who, like Catherine, went the way of parents and became an actress. Early in her career she took mother’s maiden name, to avoid being confused with his older sister Fran?oise Dorl?ac, which by that time was already known.
Since childhood, Catherine used to be silent and smile, because it was considered good manners for the girl. She grew up and closed child was strongly self-absorbed. Because of this, it even considered ‘the near’, but at school it has proven that it has not only the mind but also the artistic abilities. Nobody doubted that Deneuve wants to connect his life with the movie. After high school, she enrolled in high school, where she began to learn the basics of acting.
Start Catherine Deneuve film career was very successful, but it is not evolved without luck. In 1963, filmmaker Jacques Demy was looking for a Woman for the lead role in the film “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” (1964). After a few screen tests, it approved the winner of Eurovision Isabelle Aubret. However, after she got into a car accident and suffered serious injuries, was forced to give up the role. So your chances of getting an unknown Catherine Deneuve, who handled the role perfectly.
Musical melodrama “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg ‘made a splash in the film world and opened a new talented actress. The film was awarded the ‘Palme d’Or’ at Cannes, and Deneuve has received rave reviews from critics. In addition, the film was nominated for a Golden Globe and Oscar, so young French actress was on the lips of all America.
Kinobossy America wanted to make a movie star of Hollywood Deneuve, but the actress was in no hurry to leave Europe. Instead, she focused on work with the European directors who actively promoted the idea of ??the ‘new wave’. Cooperation with Luis Bunuel, Francois Truffaut, Roger Vadim Catherine brought immense popularity.
Filming at the feet of European cinema, Catherine Deneuve was doomed to fame. Unlike Hollywood, European producers gave directors and actors greater freedom of action. This helped Catherine better reveal his acting potential. The audience was convinced of this as early as 1965, when you see the film by Roman Polanski’s “Repulsion ‘. In this complex psychological drama Deneuve played the role of a young girl who has gradually developed a mental illness. The film made a great impression on the audience and critics, who admired the talented actress playing.
Suddenly descended on the head Deneuve success was not a fluke, but the young actress is yet to be proven. In 1966, the famous film director Luis Bunuel offered her starring role in ‘Belle de Jour’ (1967). The picture was full of explicit scenes, but Catherine is absolutely not scared.
The film became a sensation, but not for French cinema. Puritan America indignant too explicit scenes, and the French savor every frame in which Deneuve appeared. The movie has such resonance because it raises painful subject of masochism. For Catherine ‘Belle de Jour’ was one of the best work of her career, after which no one doubted her talent.
After the release of ‘Morning Glory’ Catherine Deneuve became perceived quite differently. Now, in the eyes of women, it was a destroyer of marriage, and in the eyes of men – temptress, ready to fulfill the most shameful desires. But in fact, Deneuve was extremely shy. According to the actress, in real life, she could not even afford to have someone looked into her handbag.
However, Deneuve has incredible beauty, so it has never been deprived of the attention of men. With his first love – the director Roger Vadim – Catherine met in 1960, when about it yet no one knew anything. That he has attached her to the world of cinema, removing in his film ‘vice and virtue’ (1963). Deneuve moved to the home of Roger and soon gave birth to a son, Christian. Despite the fact that they loved each other, they did not manage to legalize their relationship. And in 1965, the celebrity couple broke up.
At Catherine Deneuve was a lot of fleeting novels, but true love she has always lacked. In 1971, while filming ‘It Only Happens to Others’ actress met with Marcello Mastroianni. They are madly in love with each other and after a while began to live together. In 1972, Deneuve gave birth to daughter Chiara, which became her second and last child.
Catherine Deneuve has not stopped acting in films for a minute, but in her career, too, were unsuccessful periods. In the 80s actress allegedly disappeared in the stream movies, nothing attracting the attention of film critics. Deneuve reasserted itself in 1992, playing in the drama ‘Indochina’, which won the Oscar in the category of ‘Best Foreign Film’.
This was followed by a series of successful films: the famous post-Soviet space ‘East-West’ (1999), a harrowing drama “Dancer in the Dark” (2000), a detective story ‘8 Women’ (2002). Deneuve so wanted to play in the film ‘Dancer in the Dark’, the director Lars von Trier for her had to rewrite the script. But both were pleased with the result – the film won the ‘Palme d’Or’ and was named one of the best films of the decade.
Despite his age, Catherine Deneuve looks amazing. The secret of her beauty is simple: it does not use make-up and tries to be smaller than the sun, since UV ages the skin. The actress did not cast a movie, delighting fans with new images. In one of his last films – ‘Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia’ (2012) – she played the Queen of England.
The actress is proud to be raised two children and it does not interrupt the work in the movies. She lives and works in Paris, and spends the weekend in a country house, which cares for a large garden. Actor Gerard Depardieu once said that French cinema is unthinkable without two people – Fran?ois Truffaut and Catherine Deneuve. And not just a movie. Deneuve as the Eiffel Tower has become a symbol of France. Epitome of femininity, beauty and talent.
