Red-haired, French actress born in Paris in 1952, most famous for her leading role in Last Tango in Paris, (1972) where she starred as Marlon Brando's sex interest. The film's famous scene of buttery buggery brought her a flood of hate mail, which contributed to a period of heroin addiction and a pause in her career - which never quite fully picked up again, although she has had roles in 22 subsequent films.
