Personal life[edit] Bejo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is the daughter of Argentine filmmaker Miguel Bejo and his wife Silvia, a lawyer.[2][3] When she was three, her family moved to France, escaping from Argentina's last civil-military dictatorship (1976-1983).[4] In 2006, she starred in OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies, where she met director Michel Hazanavicius, whom she later married. They have two children: Lucien and Gloria.[5] Career[edit] In 2001, Bejo made her American film debut, playing the role of Christiana in A Knight's Tale

Under the direction of Steve Suissa, she seduces Stephane Freiss and Titoff in The Grand Role (2004), and a comedy about the world of actors, and Cavalcade (2005), a drama dealing with the theme of disability. In 2006, she made a comeback by acting alongside Jean Dujardin

In 2008, she appeared in two romantic comedies: Modern Love Bouquet and Stéphane Kazandjian. The same year she gave birth to her first child by Hazanavicius. In 2009, she participated in the documentary by Serge Bromberg (fr), Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno. The documentary reconstructs Clouzot's film, alternating between scenes from the 1964 film and dialogue readings between Jacques Gamblin

Her performance received critical acclaim, the César Award for Best Actress,[6] and several award nominations: the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role,[7] the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture award,[8] BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.[9] In 2012, she was announced as the host of the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.[10] She dubbed the role of Mérida in the French dub of the Disney/Pixar film Brave.[11] In June 2012, Bejo was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.[12] The same month, she received the Prix Romy Schneider.
