Film Society of Lincoln Center fetes Deneuve

All eyes were on Catherine Deneuve Monday night as the Film Society of Lincoln Center honored the actress with the 39th Chaplin Award.

Held at Alice Tully Hall in New York City, the gala also saw the faces of past honorees Martin Scorsese and Susan Sarandon, who boasted about “The Hunger,” the horror film she made with Deneuve.

“We have a very famous love scene … together,” Sarandon said of the 1983 picture.

On the red carpet, Deneuve shared the secret behind her famous looks.

“I try to do things my way, what I think is good for me, what I think is right for me. I try to have a little discipline about sleep and Pilates. But I’m not strict. I’m very French,” she said.

Deneuve’s daughter, Chiara Mastroianni, Glenn Close, Paul Feig and Ali Wentworth were also on hand for the festivities.

“I would trade anything to be like her 20 years from now,” Wentworth said. “The French women … there’s something in the water. I don’t know what it is. You know, I’m reading that book about French parents, and I’m ready to go. I’m ready for George Stephanopoulos to be the face of ‘Good Morning Paris.’ ”

Meanwhile, director James Gray had a hard time deciding on his favorite Deneuve film.

“Maybe ‘Belle de jour,’ but I saw ‘Repulsion’ first. I remember seeing it and was blown away. But if I had to pick one, I think ‘Belle de jour,’ it’s comic and also very dark. It’s got everything,” he said.
