Jeanne Moreau, Star Of 'Jules Et Jim' Dead At Age Of 89

French film legend Jeanne Moreau dies at 89

Jeanne Moreau has died at the age of 89.

She was born in Paris on January 23, 1928, to a French father and English mother who danced at the Folies-Bergere. A cause of death was not disclosed.

She went on to embody the French femme fatale in other movies, including Michelangelo Antonioni's "The Night" (1961), Francois Truffaut's "Jules and Jim" (1962), "Eva" (1962), "Diary of a Chambermaid" (1964), and "The Bride Wore Black" (1968). Such accolades regularly made their way to the exacting star, who also won several awards in her lifetime-including the César, the French equivalent of an Oscar, for her performance in 1991's The Old Lady Who Walked in the Sea. The actress eventually tried her hand at directing for a short time in the 1980s.

Moreau was married twice, once to writer-director Jean-Louis Richard and once to director William Friedkin.

"I know so many people staying in the same place".

In 1996, Jeanne was chairman of the Montreal World Film Festival jury that I was a member of, and my initial impression, that she was simultaneously spontaneous, conscientious and playful, never changed. Luckily, we have her bountiful filmography of over 100 films and television appearances to keep us company.




"Legend of cinema and theatre, Jeanne Moreau was an artist involved in the whirlpool of life with absolute freedom", he stated.

She worked with Orson Welles on a number of film projects, starring opposite Anthony Perkins in his adaptation of Kafka's The Trial. She was a stalwart figure of French New Wave cinema and her supporters are understandably devastated. 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. She also had high-profile relationships with Tony Richardson, Louis Malle, François Truffaut, Pierre Cardin and Miles Davis.

In addition to acting, Moreau also directed a pair of films, 1976's Lumiere and 1979's L'Adolescente, as well as a documentary on silent film star Lillian Gish. After a lull in the 1970s and 1980s, her career picked up again.

Do you remember her films?

One of the irritations of modern Internet culture is the haphazard way the word "iconic" is thrown around, basically as an all-purpose synonym for "cool" or "thing I like". "And so I told him, drink Champagne, it is lemonade for grown-ups".
