Isabelle Anne Madeleine Huppert

Type :  


Isabelle Anne Madeleine Huppert is a French actress who has appeared in over 90 film and television productions since 1971. She has had 14 films in official competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and won the Best Actress Award twice, for Violette Nozière and La pianiste . She is also the most nominated actress for the César Award, with 13 nominations. She won a César Award for Best Actress in 1996 for her performance in La Cérémonie.


 early life and career
Huppert was born in Paris, the daughter of Annick Beau, an English teacher, and Raymond Huppert, a safe manufacturer. Her grand-father was a Hungarian emigre from Eperjes in the Kingdom of Hungary, who first went to America and later to France. She was raised in a western suburb of Ville-d'Avray. Huppert was encouraged by her mother to begin acting at a young age, and became a teenage star in Paris. She later attended Versailles Conservatoire, where she won a prize for her acting. She is also an alumna of the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art of Paris, CNSAD.

After a successful stage career, she made her film debut in 1972 with Faustine et le bel été, though her television debut was in 1971. Her later appearance in the controversial Les Valseuses made her increasingly recognized by the public. Her international breakthrough came with La Dentelliere , for which she won a BAFTA award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles. She made her American film debut in Michael Cimino's 1980 film Heaven's Gate, which was a flop at the U.S. box office, but has since been re-released in the director's full version. Throughout the 1980s, Huppert continued to explore enigmatic and emotionally distant characters, most notably in Maurice Pialat's Loulou , Godard's Sauve qui peut , Diane Kurys' Coup de foudre , and Claude Chabrol's Une Affaire de Femmes .

 personal life
Huppert has been married to writer, producer and director Ronald Chammah since 1982. They have 3 children.
