"In essence, if workers have begun to smash the physical machinery of domination, so responsible intellectuals must begin to deliberately smash the mental machinery of domination. They must strive to overcome -- in themselves as well as others -- the collective fear of being human and free, a fear now reified and ratified in fixed ideas and solid-state circuitry. To do this, they must champion a new common sense that insists without compromise upon the primacy of people's lives over the strange and estranging myths of automatic destiny. The intellectual task is one of recovery, reclamation, and reminders: of who and what we are and of what is being lost." -- David F.

Liz Smith: Kim Kardashian's Baby... Rosemary's Baby? Nah -- Satan Is Afraid of the Kardashians!
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"I'M NOT having any morning sickness yet." So Kim Kardashian assures her public, on the matter of her three months along pregnancy, courtesy of boyfriend Kanye West. Kim sounds a little regretful that things are so easy for her right now. If it makes you feel any better Kim, millions are sick to their stomach for you. Kim is not quite divorced from athlete Kris Humphries, but what the hell, everything old is new again. Ingrid Bergman did all this back in 1949. Of course Ingrid's pregnancy led to her being condemned on the floor of the United States Congress and being banned, essentially, from the U.S. for a decade. We are much more enlightened now. Nobody is going to ban Kim Kardashian from America for 10 years. Read it and weep. SPEAKING OF pregnancy, Jennifer Aniston is not. At least she sure didn't look it over Christmas, sunning herself in warmer climes wearing a teeny bikini. This is good news for everybody who insists on making Aniston an unhappy woman -- ...

    In 2002, she received an honorary César Award, France's national film award, and in 2003 received an honorary Golden Berlin Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.
    More Details Hide Details In the 1960s, Life magazine called her "the Left Bank's most beautiful resident," adding that "after each picture her enigmatic beauty lingered" in the memories of her audience. Aimée has been married and divorced four times. First to Eduard Zimmermann (married February 1949, divorced October 1950), secondly to film director Nico Papatakis (married August 1951, divorced October 1955), thirdly to actor and musical producer Pierre Barouh (married April 1966, divorced March 1969) and lastly to actor Albert Finney (married August 1970, divorced June 1978). She had one child, Manuela Papatakis (born 1951), from her second marriage.
    In 2002 she received an honorary César Award, France's national film award.
    More Details Hide Details She was noted for her "striking features" and beauty, and considered "one of the hundred sexiest stars in film history," according to a 1995 poll conducted by Empire Magazine. Her acting style often portrays a femme fatale, with a melancholy aura. In the 1960s, Life magazine wrote that "after each picture her enigmatic beauty lingered" in the memories of her audience, and called her "the Left Bank's most beautiful resident." Aimée was born Nicole Françoise Florence Dreyfus in Paris, France, the daughter of actor Henri Murray (born Henry Dreyfus) and actress Geneviève Sorya (born Durand). According to one historian, although some have speculated that her background may be related to Captain Alfred Dreyfus, this has never been confirmed. Her father was Jewish and her mother was Roman Catholic. She was raised Catholic but later converted to Judaism as an adult. Her early education took place at l'École de la rue Milton, in Paris; École de Barbezieux; Pensionnat de Bandol; and Institution de Megève. She studied dance at Marseille Opera; studied theater in England, after which she studied dramatic art and dance with Andrée Bauer-Thérond.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1969
    Age 36
    In 1969 she starred in the American film production of Justine, costarring Dirk Bogarde and directed by George Cukor and Joseph Strick.
    More Details Hide Details The film contained some nudity, with one writer observing, "Anouk is always impeccable, oozing the sexy, detached air of the elite... when she drops these trappings, along with her couture clothing, Anouk's naked perfection will annihilate you." Photojournalist Eve Arnold, assigned to photograph and write a story about Aimée and her role, spoke to Dirk Bogarde, who had known her since she was fifteen. He said that "She is never so happy as when she is miserable between love affairs," referencing her recent love affair with Omar Sharif. Arnold photographed Aimée, who talked about her role as the character Justine. Justine was also Jewish. Arnold recalls one of their talks: Another American film, La Brava, starring Dustin Hoffman, was set to be made in 1984 but never completed. Hoffman at first decided it would play better if he were in love with a younger girl rather than the original story's older woman. "Where are you going to get a good-looking older woman?" he asked. He rejected Faye Dunaway, feeling she was "too obvious." A month later, after a chance meeting with Aimée in Paris, he changed his mind, telling his producer, "I can fall in love with the older woman. I met Anouk Aimée over the weekend. She looks great." He begged his producer to at least talk to her: "Come on, get on the phone, say hello to her...
  • 1966
    Age 33
    Primarily due to the excellent acting by its stars, Aimée and Jean-Louis Trintignant, the film became an international success, winning both the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1966 and an Oscar.
    More Details Hide Details Tabery states that with her "subtle portrayal of the heroine—self-protective, then succumbing to a new love—Aimée seemed to create a new kind of femme fatale..." Film historian Jurgen Muller adds, "whether one like the film or not, it's still hard for anyone to resist the melancholy aura of Anouk Aimée." In many of her subsequent films, she would continue to play that type of role, "a woman of sensitivity whose emotions are often kept secret."
    Aimée's greatest success came in 1966 with the film Un homme et une femme (A Man and a Woman) directed by little known Claude Lelouch.

  • TEENAGE
  • 1946
    Age 13
    Aimée (then still Françoise Dreyfus) made her film debut in 1946, at the age of fourteen, in the role of "Anouk" in La Maison sous la mer, and she kept the name afterwards.
    More Details Hide Details Jacques Prévert, while writing Les amants de Vérone (The Lovers of Verona, 1949) specifically for her, suggested she take the symbolic last name Aimée, "that would forever associate her with the affective power of her screen roles." In French, it means "beloved." Among her notable films were Alexandre Astruc’s Le Rideau Cramoisi (The Crimson Curtain, 1952), Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita (1960), Fellini's 8½ (1963), Jacques Demy’s Lola (1961), André Delvaux’s Un Soir, un Train (One Evening, One Train, 1968), George Cukor’s Justine (1969), Bernardo Bertolucci’s Tragedy of a Ridiculous Man (1981), Robert Altman’s Prêt à Porter (Ready to Wear, 1994) and, Claude Lelouch’s Un Homme et une femme (A Man and a Woman, 1966) — described as a "film that virtually reignited the lush on-screen romance in an era of skeptical modernism." Words like "regal," "intelligent" and "enigmatic" are frequently associated with her, notes one author, giving Aimée "an aura of disturbing and mysterious beauty" that has earned her the status of "one of the hundred sexiest stars in film history," according to a 1995 poll conducted by Empire Magazine.
