Catherine Deneuve Deneuve's first big break came in when she was cast in Jacques Demy's musical Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. She went on to do three more films with Demy and in the process caught the eye of Roman Polanski, who cast her in Repulsion.
Catherine Deneuve - Always sublime and stunning, I think she was at her most beautiful in "Indochine" when she was 49. There are so many stories of her generosity to her fellow actors. She's wonderful.
