Danielle Darrieux, who made more than 100 films in a career that spanned eight decades, has died. The French actress and singer’s passing was reported by AFP citing her companion Jacques Jenvrin who said she died at her home in Bois-le-Roi, France on Tuesday. She turned 100-years-old on May 1.
Over the course of her long career, Darrieux worked with such directors as Max Ophuls, Jean Cocteau, Claude Chabrol, Henri Ducoin, Joseph L Mankiewicz, Jacques Demy, André Téchiné, Anne Fontaine and François Ozon.
One of her more recent roles came in 2002’s Huit Femmes (Eight Women), an ensemble musical hit that also starred Catherine Deneuve and Isabelle Huppert, among others. She was nominated for a Supporting Actress César for the film and shared acting honors with the cast in Berlin and at the European Film Awards.
