Isabelle Anne Huppert (in French pronounced [izab?l y'p??]) (born March 16, 1953) is a French actress, who has appeared in a few major Hollywood movies.
Born in Paris to Raymond Huppert and his wife Annick, and raised in Ville d'Avray. Huppert was encouraged by her mother to begin acting at a young age, and became a teenage star in Paris. She later attended the Conservatory of Versailles, at which she won a prize for her acting. After a successful stage career, she began making movies, debuting in 1972 with Faustine et le bel été. (She had made a television debut the year before.) However it was her appearance in the controversial Les Valseuses (1974) that caused her to become known. She made her American debut in the Michael Cimino's 1980 film Heaven's Gate, which flopped at the U.S. box office, but was re-released in the full version to great acclaim.
Huppert most recently appeared on the Paris stage as the suicidal Hedda Gabler, in Henrik Ibsen's play. In 2005, she toured the United States in a production of Sarah Kane's theatrical piece, 4.48 Psychosis. This production was directed by Claude Regy and performed in French. She chose to remain still throughout the entire performance, moving only her hands and face, much of the time with tears streaming down her cheeks.
