I'm sorry, but I love Anouk Aimee

One of the great European actresses, the gorgeous Anouk Aimee was born in Paris in 1932, and began her acting career in 1947. I know her best from Fellini's 8 1/2 (1963), she plays Guido's wife Luisa (the bottom picture here), and I always thought she was amazingly beautiful. Aside from 8 1/2, she had worked with Fellini and Marcello Mastroianni three years earlier in Fellini's masterpiece La Dolce Vita. She's still alive and the last film I saw her in was Henry Jaglom's 2001 Festival in Cannes, playing a prima dona actress Millie Marquand. Anyways, there are many reasons one should see 8 1/2, and not the least of which is Anouk Aimee.

You can see her in this clip from 8 1/2 at about 48 seconds.
