Catherine Deneuve was honored yesterday evening at the Lincoln Center Film Society with the 39th Lifetime Achievement Chaplin Gala Award (originally named after Charlie Chaplin). The 68 year old actress has over 100 films under her cinematic belt and only seven of which are in English. Hence, when asked about her first learning to receive the award, "I was very surprised, being a French actress I was really quite amazed they would choose me," the actress candidly admitted.
In the 50 years of Deneuve's film career, she's received many prestigious awards: being nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in 1993 for Indochine and winning two César Awards, one for Indochine and the other for The Last Metro in 1980. Well we certainly think she deserves this award, pourquoi pas? It is through those 100 plus roles (whether in French or English), that this brilliant actress has bequeathed upon us the ever so changing, revealing and still evolving varied portraits of women.
