The acclaimed actress' death was confirmed by the mayor of the Paris district in which Moreau lived in, Variety reported.

Today, no one bats a heavy-lidded eye at the idea of Jeanne Moreau - who died Monday at age 89 - as one of the world's great beauties.

Often flitting between popular and art-house films, Moreau appeared in a wide variety of worldwide films including, Viva Maria! alongside Brigitte Bardot and George Hamilton, The Yellow Rolls Royce, Frankenheimer's The Train alongside Burt Lancaster and Luc Besson's Nikita.

He posted: "She was strong and she didn't like to see people pour their hearts out".

Popular Video This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert.

In it she plays Catherine, a woman in the middle of a love triangle.

She cleared out the Comedie Francaise in 1953 and joined the Theater National Populaire, where she showed up in such plays as Le Cid and The Prince From Hamburg.

Moreau filled in as leader of the Commission d'Avances of France's Center National de la Cinematographie. The actress, who was presumably reminded of her past work in countless interviews and fan interactions, took a rather hard stance on nostalgia of any kind in her later years.

She won the best on-screen character grant at Cannes in 1960 for her featuring part in Peter Brook's Moderato Cantabile.

In fact, there was always a sense of ruined nobility to Moreau's persona, a cruelty and a coldness that Truffaut ignored (in "Jules", anyway) but that other directors picked up on and that seemed to derive from life experience.

This is an actor who, in the span of ten years alone, worked with Malle, Orson Welles, Tony Richardson, Jen-Luc Godard, Francois Truffault, Jacques Demy, Luis Buñuel, and John Frankenheimer.

Many fans remembered the actress on social media.

"Oh no, Jeanne Moreau has died", wrote one user.

But here she was, "Madame Friedkin", as someone rather derisively referred to her, occupying a sprawling home just above UCLA in Bel-Air and, as I learned over numerous lunches at a small, entirely untrendy Japanese place (no longer there) on Sawtelle that was a favorite of hers, writing her autobiography. "An actual icon of film".

In Renoir's "Little Theatre", Moreau is asked simply to sing a song in Folies Bergere period costume. In 1998 she was the subject of a tribute at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, though the Oscar was the rare statue that eluded her during a career that spanned over six decades.
