Deneuve who?

Love this conversation I just had with my friends who do the makeup effects for Nip/Tuck:

THEM: So, we need your archival brain again: What's Catherine Deneuve been in? We've got this guy working for us and he doesn't know who she is. He asked if she was a singer.

ME: Oh my God! She's only one of our greatest actresses, and the most beautiful woman on the planet!

THEM: Yeah, but what's she been in?

ME: Well, start with Polanski's Repulsion, Bunuel's Belle Du Jour, Truffaut's The Last Metro, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Indochine...

THEM: So she makes foreign films.

ME: Yeah...she's French. (then) Oh, how about The Hunger?

THEM: Oh, yeah, she was David Bowie's wife!

ME: Yeah, that's her.

Turns out she's guest-starring on an episode of Nip/Tuck. I am trying my best not to play raving fangirl and beg for a glimpse of the goddess...
