Legendary actress, Danielle Darrieux, was born Danielle Yvonne Marie Antoinette Darrieux on May 1, 1917 in Bordeaux, France. As of December 2019, Danielle Darrieux was 102 years old.
For six decades Danielle Darrieux played pretty well every kind of woman, with perhaps a slight preference for the experienced woman with something to teach the younger man. Made a star by the first version of Mayerling, she has made fewer international appearances than her contemporaries, but that was France's gain, and she remained beautiful into middle age.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
