2Petulant voice
3Often plays characters named Anouk
1It is always better to have a few scenes with a good director, than many scenes with a bad one.
2Oh come on, it hasn't been an unimpressive career. If you look at the number of projects I've been involved in, the people I've worked with ... But it's perhaps true that I haven't always made the right choices. I've taken parts I didn't particularly like because I wanted to work with the director - Altman, for example. But there's very little that I actually regret doing. I had to do most of it, I needed the money. There are one or two things I could have said yes to, though. That's probably true.
3You can only perceive real beauty in a person as they get older.
1Was the first French actress (out of 7) to be nominated for an Academy Award for a French-language performance. The others in chronological order are Isabelle Adjani, Marie-Christine Barrault, Catherine Deneuve, Marion Cotillard, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert.
2As of 2016 she is the 10th earliest surviving recipient of a Best Actress Oscar nomination, tied with Vanessa Redgrave and behind only Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Caron, Carroll Baker, Joanne Woodward, Shirley MacLaine, Doris Day, a tied Piper Laurie and Sophia Loren, Julie Andrews, and a tied Julie Christie and Samantha Eggar. She was nominated in 1966 for A Man and a Woman (1966).
3Besides French, she speaks fluent Italian and English.
4First French actress to win both a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award for a French-speaking role (for her performance in A Man and a Woman (1966)). The second and last one is Marion Cotillard (for La Vie en Rose (2007)). Aimée is also the first actress to be nominated for an Oscar for a French-speaking role, while Cotillard is the first and only actress to win an Oscar for a French-speaking role. Cotillard played Aimée's character in (1963), Luisa, in the musical Nine (2009).
5In his autobiography (M le Mocky), Jean-Pierre Mocky admits his love feelings towards Aimée, whom she had known since the late 40s. Despite having always had plans to propose, he initially thought to wait since she wasn't of age yet. After the 17 years old Aimée had an affair with her 27 years old co-star Serge Reggiani on the set of Les amants de Vérone (1949), Mocky was so disappointed by her conduct that he gave up his romantic plans. He was, however, instrumental in casting the actress in Head Against the Wall (1959) (where he also starred).
6Was friends with writer Julien Green, who picked her for the role of Regina in the original stage production of 'Sud' and later chose her to play the title role in Adrienne Mesurat (1953).
7She originated the role of Regina in the first production of Julien Green's controversial Civil War Drama 'Sud', which marked her stage debut (in 1953). After this experience, she grew so terrified of stage work that she didn't tread the boards again until 1990.
8Has been friends with Michel Piccoli her whole life, having known him at acting classes. They appeared together in Les mauvaises rencontres (1955), A Leap in the Dark (1980), The General of the Dead Army (1983), Viva la vie (1984), Success Is the Best Revenge (1984), L'amour maudit de Leisenbohg (1991), Rupture(s) (1993) and One Hundred and One Nights (1995).
9Was friends with director Federico Fellini and actor Marcello Mastroianni, both of which she credits for having taught her a lot about her profession. Once claimed that the only photo of hers she keeps attached to her wall is one with the two of them.
10Returned to the stage in 1990 after a 37 years absence to play the role of Alexa (Melissa) in a new version of A.R. Gurney's 'Love Letters' under the direction of Lars Schmidt, who had witnessed her stage debut in 'Sud' and thought of her for the part. Over the years, she did reprise the role several times opposite different partners, which included Bruno Cremer (1990), Jean-Louis Trintignant (1991), Philippe Noiret (2005), Jacques Weber (2006), Alain Delon (2008) and Gérard Depardieu (2014).
11Was once approached to star in the unmade 'At Lake Lugano', which would've been penned by Barbara Turner and directed by Robert Altman. The project never saw the light of the day, for reasons that remain controversial to this day: Aimée herself claims that, as she met him in Paris, Altman struck her as a very authoritarian person it would've been difficult to work with. Turner, on the other hand, claims the director was annoyed by the Anouk's choice of not seeing any of his prior movies and eventually told the actress to her face that he would've preferred Annie Girardot to play the role. Aimée eventually went on to work with Altman in Ready to Wear (1994).
12Made her primary studies at 'Rue Milton School' in Montmartre and in Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire (Charente). She later entered a boarding school in Bandol and also spent some of her formative years in Megève.
13As a child, she originally dreamed of becoming a pharmacist or a dancer.
14As a child, she took some dancing courses at the 'Opéra de Marseille'.
15Born in Paris, her parents sent her to Barbezieux-Saint-Hilaire, so that she would escape the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup. She lived there for the rest of the war years using her mother's maiden name (Durand) instead of her Jewish one (Dreyfus), so that she wouldn't have to wear the yellow badge.
16In the 1950s, she took some dancing and stage acting lessons from Andrée Bauer-Thérond.
17Has been part of Jean Cocteau and Raymond Queneau's milieu.
18She's an active environmentalist and animal rights spokesperson. She's a member of the Jane Goodall Institute in France and personal friends with Goodall herself.
19Élie Chouraqui was her companion for part of the 70's and 80's. He directed her in Mon premier amour (1978), Une page d'amour (1980), Qu'est-ce qui fait courir David? (1982), Les marmottes (1993) and Celle que j'aime (2009).
20Has had relationships with Warren Beatty and Omar Sharif.
21Claude Lelouch was reportedly in love with Aimée during the shooting of A Man and a Woman (1966), but was unsuccessful in winning her heart, since she was already romantically involved with the composer Pierre Barouh (who had written a song for the film), whom she'd later marry.
22Her relationship with Albert Finney ended when she fell in love with Ryan O'Neal.
23She was friends with Jacques Prévert, who wrote the screenplays for her early movies La fleur de l'âge (1947) and Les amants de Vérone (1949). It was through Prévert and his friend Alexandre Trauner that, at age 17, she went on to know some prominent figures of the French cultural and artistic world, such as Alberto Giacometti, Pablo Picasso, Simone Signoret, Jean-Paul Sartre, Jean Genet and her second husband Nikos Papatakis.
24After her acting career started by accident when she was hired for La maison sous la mer (1947) (something that lead to a few more film roles in the 40's), she actually relocated in England for a while to make her studies in a nunnery school. She also made some theatrical studies while there.
25The title role in Mademoiselle (1966) was originally written for her by family friend Jean Genet, who served as best man during her marriage to Nikos Papatakis and handed them the script on that date as a present. While shooting Head Against the Wall (1959), Aimée asked director Georges Franju if he had any interest to helm the project, but, when he mentioned her to the producers, he was told: 'It's not Anouk these days, it's Marie Laforêt'. Other things later factored into Anouk not being cast in the project, such as Genet keeping selling the script to different people when he needed money and Franju having- by the time he had been officially offered the project- grown enamored with the acting skills of his collaborator Emmanuelle Riva and moved on to struggle for the latter being cast. The film was finally directed by Tony Richardson and starred Jeanne Moreau.
26She won the 1961 'Étoile de cristal' for Best Actress for her performance in La Dolce Vita (1960).
27Was engaged to Maurice Ronet in the early 50s.
28During the shooting of Justine (1969), she and actor Michael York were very much at odds with director George Cukor (who had replaced Joseph Strick). Aimée used to leave the set quite often- to be with her fiancé Albert Finney- and threaten never to come back, something that slowed down the shooting. Cukor stated in interviews that he felt Anouk's acting inability damaged the movie.
29She won the 2009 "Prix Henri-Langlois" for her film work.
30She never drank alcohol.
31Jean-Louis Trintignant didn't feel much at ease working with Aimée on the set of A Man and a Woman (1966), stating that he found her behaviour aloof and that he vastly preferred spending time with the child actors.
32Both Anouk and Emmanuelle Riva received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for playing opposite Jean-Louis Trintignant: coincidentally, both actresses were playing a character named Anne.
33First actor to receive an Oscar nomination for a French-language performance (for A Man and a Woman (1966)).
34Is one of 13 French actresses to have received an Academy Award nomination. The others in chronological order are: Claudette Colbert, Colette Marchand, Leslie Caron, Simone Signoret, Isabelle Adjani, Marie-Christine Barrault, Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Marion Cotillard, Bérénice Bejo, Emmanuelle Riva and Isabelle Huppert.
35Mother of Manuella Papatakis (b. September 15th 1951).
36Her acting career began when, at age 14, she was walking down the rue Colisée in the eighth arrondissement in Paris with her mother. Director Henri Calef stopped her and asked if she would like to be in a movie.
37Of all the roles she turned down, the one she regrets not accepting the most was the Faye Dunaway role in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968).
38Adopted her stage name "Anouk" after playing a character of that name in her debut film, Henri Calef's La maison sous la mer (1947), in 1946. The name "Aimée" was given to her by Jacques Prévert, who penned La fleur de l'âge (1947), where she starred.
39Was one of several actresses considered for the role of "The Baroness" in the film version of The Sound of Music (1965); the role ultimately went to Eleanor Parker.
40Ex-stepmother of Simon Finney.
41Has supported Lionel Jospin's 2002 presidential campaign.
42Her manager is Dominique Besnehard.
43Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#56). [1995]
