Jeanne Moreau, one of French cinema’s biggest stars of the last 60 years, has died at the age of 89.
Outspoken, provocative and acting well into her 80s, Jeanne Moreau was among France’s most-recognized performers. Tributes poured in Monday for a woman described by the French president as epitomizing her art like few others.
Thanks to her striking looks and impulsive characters, some called her the French Bette Davis.
Moreau often played women of experience, and off screen she had so many lovers she once boasted to a reporter she wanted to build a house and fill it with her favourite men… Ha! My hero!
An icon of the French New Wave who redefined star quality.
RIP LEGEND! We’ll miss you Madame Moreau.
