Juliette Binoche Biography
Juliette Binoche won an Oscar as best supporting actress for the 1996 movie The English Patient.
Binoche had already been a star in France for nearly a decade, known for her quiet intensity, ethereal beauty and shy smile.
Her most prominent roles internationally include the innocent Tereza in The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988, with Daniel Day-Lewis) and the wandering shopkeeper Vianne in Chocolat (2000, with Johnny Depp).
By 2006 Binoche had been eight times nominated for the César Award as best actress in France — she won once, for the 1993 movie Bleu — and she was again nominated for an Oscar as best actress for Chocolat.
