French actresses are like poetry. They ooze a sense of charm, are daringly gorgeous and have a captivating personality that melts the heart of all. Witty, charismatic and elegant, French actresses have stormed their way into modern cinema and hugely impacted the world with their killing looks and superb acting technique. They may not be as glitzy and extravagant as Hollywood beauties nor as unconventional and quirky as British film stars, but they do have an enduring persona and elegance that helps them surpass all. They have sizzled the silver screen, with their avant-garde style, iconic acting capabilities and the knack to put an emotional touch to characters and films. Legendary actresses such as Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve captivated audience with their talent and to-die-for blonde looks. And just when the world was reeling over these beautifully talented muses, France gave them some more in the form of Juliette Binoche, Isabella Huppert, Julie Delpy who shot to international fame with their cult movies. The present-day French film industry takes pride in Marion Cotillard, Eva Green, Audrey Tautou and Emmanuelle Beart. With this segment, get details about the life, career, and works of famous French actresses.
