According to a statement from her family, French movie star Catherine Deneuve, 76, had a ‘very limited stroke which is reversible.’
”Happily she has no loss of motor function, although she will of course have to rest for a while,’ said the statement, issued on behalf of her family by her agent Claire Blondel
Deneuve – the star of such classics as Luis Bunuel‘s Belle de Jour, Roman Polanski‘s Repulsion and Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg – was shooting her latest film, De son vivant (In her/his Lifetime) when she was taken ill.
A source told the French television news channel BFMTV that Deneuve was suffering from ‘exhaustion after doing too much’.
