Last year, she apologised to victims of sexual assault after signing an open letter arguing that the campaign against sexual harassment had gone too far.

Deneuve's agent, Claire Blondel, shared that the European star suffered a "no motor function deficit, and must of course take some time off".

"A source told French television network BFMTV that Catherine had recently been suffering from 'exhaustion'".
