Early life and education[edit] Moreau was born in Paris, the daughter of Katherine (née Buckley), a dancer who performed at the Folies Bergère
Folies Bergère
(d. 1990), and Anatole-Désiré Moreau, a restaurateur (d. 1975).[2][3] Moreau's father was French; her mother was English, a native of Oldham, Lancashire, England[4] and of part Irish descent.[3][5][6] Moreau's father was Catholic and her mother, originally a Protestant, converted to Catholicism upon marriage.[3] When a young girl, "the family moved south to Vichy, spending vacations at the ancestral village of Mazirat, a town of 30 houses in a valley in the Allier. "It was wonderful there", Moreau said. "Every tombstone in the cemetery was for a Moreau". During the World War II, the family was split, and Moreau lived with her mother in Paris. Moreau ultimately lost interest in school at age 16, and after attending a performance of Jean Anouilh's Antigone, found her calling as an actor. She later studied at the Conservatoire de Paris. Her parents separated permanently while Moreau was at the conservatory and her mother, "after 24 difficult years in France, returned to England with Jeanne's[1] sister, Michelle."[1] Career[edit] In 1947, Moreau made her theatrical debut at the Avignon Festival. She debuted at the Comédie-Française
in Ivan Turgenev's A Month in the Country[1] and, by her 20s, was already one of leading actresses in the theatre's troupe.[3] After 1949, she began appearing in films with small parts but continued primarily active in the theatre for several years—a year at the Théâtre National Populaire

opposite among others Gérard Philipe

and Robert Hirsch, then a breakout two years in dual roles in The Dazzling Hour by Anna Bonacci, then Jean Cocteau's La Machine Infernale and others before another two-year run, this time in Shaw's Pygmalion.[1] From the late 1950s, after appearing in several successful films, she began to work with the emerging generation of French film-makers.

Moreau went on to work with many of the best known New Wave and avant-garde directors.[3] François Truffaut's New Wave film Jules et Jim (1962), her biggest success internationally, is centerd on her magnetic starring role.[3] She also worked with a number of other notable directors such as Michelangelo Antonioni

In 1983, she was head of the jury at the 33rd Berlin International Film Festival.[8] In 2005, she was awarded with the Stanislavsky Award at the 27th Moscow International Film Festival.[9] Moreau was also a vocalist. She released several albums and once performed with Frank Sinatra

at Carnegie Hall.[3] In addition to acting, Moreau worked behind the camera as a writer, director and producer.[3] Her accomplishments were the subject of the film Calling the Shots (1988) by Janis Cole and Holly Dale.[citation needed] Personal life[edit]
