The European Film Academy will honor international screen icon Catherine Deneuve with a lifetime achievement award for her outstanding body of work.
The ice-cool French beauty, now 69, has played everything from a bourgeois housewife turned prostitute to a bisexual vampire, and worked with a formidable roster of auteurs throughout her career: Luis Bunuel ("Belle de Jour," "Tristana"), Roman Polanski ("Repulsion"), Jacques Demy ("The Umbrellas of Cherbourg"), Jean-Pierre Melville ("Un Flic"), Francois Truffaut ("The Last Metro"), Andre Techine ("Ma Maison Preferee," "Les Voleurs") and Arnaud Desplechin ("A Christmas Tale") -- and this is just naming a few. She has starred in over 100 films.
Deneuve will be an honorary guest at the upcoming European Film Awards, along with director and fellow honoree Pedro Almodovar. The ceremony is set to take place December 7 in Berlin.
