June 27, 1955
Isabelle Adjani was born to an Algerian father of Turkish ancestry and a German mother. Raised and schooled in Paris, Isabelle began appearing in amateur stage productions, and at fourteen she made her film debut during summer break in Le Petit bougnat. Several TV commercials and feature films followed until she joined the prestigious Comédie-Française in the early 1970s. It was during this time that her talent attracted the attention of director François Truffaut, who later went on to cast her as the lead in L'Truffaut's Histoire d'Adèle H.
Chosen by People magazine in 1990 as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" this raven haired beauty has proved time and again that she is more than just a pretty face by earning Oscar nominations for L'Truffaut's Histoire d'Adèle H., which served to elevate her to the status of France's top female movie star, and her haunting portrayal of the troubled artist Camille in Camille Claudel; a role which also earned her a César for Best Actress. American audiences got a good dose of her brilliance when she starred opposite Sharon Stone in the thriller Diabloique in 1998.
She has two children: Barnabe [with Bruno Nuytten], and Gabriel-Kane [with Daniel Day-Lewis].
