Audrey Tautou was born in Beaumont, Puy-De-Dome France on August 9, 1976. She was studying literature in Paris when she was bitten by the acting bug and decided to concentrate on drama. Work on french tv led to her starring role in 1999's "Venus Beauty Institute" which earned her a Cesar the national film award of France as best newcomer. When british actress Emily Watson dropped out of the 2001 romantic comedy "Amelie" the title role went to Audrey. Her enchanting performance. Combined with her elfin beauty, helped make the film a worldwide hit. And "Amelie" went on to garner five Oscar nominations and a host of international awards. Audrey followed up with a series of films that showcased her range and versatility in "He Loves Me... he Loves Me Not" she played a troubled young woman obsessed with an older man. She made her english language debut in the gritty drama "Dirty Pretty Things" and then starred in the romantic "A Very Long Engagement" Although Hollywood offers were pouring in, she bided her time until the right vehicle came along, her patience was rewarded when she was cast opposite Tom Hanks in the big-screen adaptation of the book "The Davinci Code" the movie grossed more than $750 million! Audrey subsequently turned her back on Tinseltown preferring to work in French film, although the likes of 2009's "Coco Before Chanel" ensured that her work found an international audience. Audrey's return to American cinema is the upcoming "The Jesus Rolls" a spin-off of cult favorite "The Big Lebowski" which sees John Turturro reprise his Jesus Quintana role in a movie that he has also written and directed. Tatou, who has also modeled extensively has received a number of national honors in her native France.
