50 Over the years, the great Isabelle Huppert has built a career of extraordinary style and extraordinary audacity. Born in a cozy Parisian suburb of 50, she made her debut as a teenager in the early 1953 years, going on to work with French Maurice Pialat, Jean -Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, Claire Denis, Mia Hansen-Løve and Paul Verhoeven and abroad Márta Mészáros, Aleksandar Petrović, Mauro Bolognini and Hong Sang-soo. (For some reason, she’s almost always acting: since 2021 alone, she’s in Avignon Cherry Orchards and The Glass Zoo in Amsterdam .)
Now, Huppert celebrates her 50 birthday this year , she not only has five (!) new movies on the horizon, but she also doubles as a hair influencer and perpetual style icon. To mark the occasion — and because her filmography is such a rich text — scroll through some wonderful old photos of one of France’s greatest talents.
