    Audrey Tautou is a film actress who has starred in the highest-grossing French-language film ever to be released in the United States.
    Audrey Tautou began taking acting lessons at a young age. In 1998, she won a best actress award at young actors festival in France. Soon thereafter, she made her film debut in “Venus Beauty Institute” (1999) for which she earned an award as the most promising young film actress. She rose to international stardom in the charming, romantic-comedy “Amélie” (2001), playing a shy, isolated waitress who decides to improve the lives of the people around her. In 2006, she made her Hollywood debut in the film based on Dan Brown's best selling novel, "The Da Vinci Code.” She also played lead in the biopic of French fashion designer Coco Chanel titled "Coco Before Chanel" (2009).
    In 2009, she appeared in ads for the perfume "Chanel No. 5" to coincide with her roll as Coco Chanel. Though she is a talented and bankable actress, in a 2011 interview, she expressed her interest in leaving the silver screen to pursue other interests.

    Memorable quotes:
    After each experience, you grow up, you get enriched with something, and you don't know how you're going to be in six months, you don't know what you're going to want, what you're going to need.
