Biography

A cool, innocent-looking leading lady with honey-colored hair and an unflappable, world-weary gaze in her green eyes, Isabelle Huppert made her screen debut at age 16 and had appeared in over 15 films by the age of 21, including a small role as a bored teenager who runs off with the vagabond threesome in Bertrand Blier's road movie "Going Places" (1974). Her roles as the guileless, victimized main character of Claude Goretta's "The Lacemaker" (1977) and as the casual murderess "Violette Noziere" (1978) demonstrated an enviable dramatic range and propelled her into international stardom. In the early 1980s, Huppert earned a reputation for using her influence to help non-commercial projects get off the ground; such films included Jean-Luc Godard's "Every Man for Himself" (1980), Joseph Losey's "The Trout" (1982) and sister Caroline Huppert's "Sincerely, Charlotte" (1984). Huppert has continued to work with non-mainstream directors such as Diane Kurys ("Entre Nous" 1983) as well as established international figures such as Claude Chabrol ("Story of Women" 1988; "Madame Bovary" 1991). In 1997, she worked with New Wave icon Chabrol a fourth time in "Rien ne va plus," playing a con artist.
