Jeanne Moreau has died

Jeanne Moreau, the French actress and New Wave icon who brought sublime complexity to her performances in films such as Francois Truffaut's "Jules et Jim", Louis Malle's "Elevator to the Gallows", Jacques Demy's "Bay of Angels" and Michelangelo Antonioni's "La Notte", died Monday at the age of 89.

Jeanne received a string of awards throughout her successful career, including the Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival in 1960 for her role in "Seven Days".

Jeanne Moreau, whose brooding beauty entranced worldwide film audiences in such films as The Lovers, Jules et Jim and The Bride Wore Black, has died at the age of 89, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

"Most people feel acting is pretending, but for me it is not that", she'd said to me in the Post interview.

"Any man who didn't love Jeanne Moreau would have to be blind and deaf. I am usually a very calm person, but I was trembling".

Love Island's Mike threw one last insult at Olivia last night
The figures speak volumes about the popularity of Love Island this year and the wide reach its stars have on social media. Olivia was sporting a pair of pink wellies and a hoodie as she accompanied her man across a field of cows.

She began her film career with a role in Dernier Amour.

Moreau rarely made Hollywood movies, though she appeared in four of Orson Welles' European productions.

The Jules & Jim role earned Moreau a French Grand Prix award as well as a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Foreign Actress. The couple had one son, Jerome. She married twice, first to director Jean-Louis Richard, then to director William Friedkin. A few years after The whirlwind, she was also out I have the memory fails, a title still today known to all.

President Emmanuel Macron confirmed her death and said in a statement: "We could say about Jeanne Moreau that a part of cinema legend is gone".

Often flitting between popular and art-house films, Moreau appeared in a wide variety of global films including, Viva Maria! alongside Brigitte Bardot and George Hamilton, The Yellow Rolls Royce, Frankenheimer's The Train alongside Burt Lancaster and Luc Besson's Nikita. In 1997, she coordinated a third film, Solstice. Jeanne was the only female invited, and when we were seated at the far end of the long table, far from Tony, she started fuming, chain-smoking instead of eating and wondering why she was invited at all. "I am not disturbed from my aim by outside pressures such as family, passionate relationships, dealing with who am I-those complications when one is searching for one's self". Deep experience of life and love defined her screen persona and exuded from her every pore, and serious wisdom came along with that.
