Profile Bio Text
Annie Girardot was a French actress. She began performing in 1954, making her film debut in Treize à table.
She won the Prix Suzanne Bianchetti in 1956, and in 1977 won the César Award for Best Actress portraying the title character in Docteur Françoise Gailland. In 2002, she was awarded the César Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Piano Teacher. She collaborated with director Michael Haneke again, in the 2005 film Caché. She nearly steals the show in Luchino Visconti`s masterful 3 hour epic from 1960, Rocco e i suoi fratelli. Playing Nadia, a prostitute, she`s sexy, passionate, mercurial and utterly fascinating. The strength of her acting overcomes Alain Delon`s weak Rocco, and she`s clearly believable as a woman whose remote beauty drives a wedge between Rocco and his older brother, Simone (played with a mix of bewitched simplicity and total depravity by Renato Salvatori). During the 70th she has played in Les feux de la chandeleur, La Gifle et La Zizanie.
The September 21, 2006 issue of French magazine Paris Match revealed that she is suffering from Alzheimer`s disease.
