Celebrating A French Natural Wonder!
My “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown” profiles Classic Movie Queens as well as some of the most empowered women working in cinema today – and that’s certainly the case for French Actress Sophie Marceau!
Sophie Marceau is one of the busiest, and most successful, Actresses working today – and she works in all genres of film!
She was born Sophie Danièle Sylvie Maupu in Paris, France – growing up far from studio spotlights.
When she was 14, Sophie was living in the Paris suburb of Gentilly with her father when fame came calling. Friends told her about a Director looking for new faces for a movie called “The Party”.
She auditioned, scored a lead role, and she was on her way to becoming an international star!
She became a big star in France – and a provocative Model as well:
She won France’s “Oscar” – the Cesar Award for Best Feminine Hope for “La Boum 2” in 1983.
She appeared in a wide variety of provocative films, always willing to put it all out there for her art.
She has appeared in films by world famous Directors, and understand he perception of her, and other French women – as she said in an interview:
“And that’s how the world, I think, imagines French women–you know, like very womanly and seducing men and that’s how they like to imagine them.”
Sophie became a popular figure in French newspapers and magazines, and she cemented her reputation with this “wardrobe malfunction” at the Cannes Film Festival, where the entire world’s Press gathers:
Well, talk about getting press attention!
She has had an acclaimed career, and a reputation for bold choices.
She played Princess Isabelle in Mel Gibson’s Oscar-winning Best Picture “Braveheart” in 1995.
And let’s not forget that she was a Bond girl as well!
