Pantheon: Juliette Binoche. "You don't need money with a face like that."

You don't need the money with a face like that. Born in Paris, she's now 48. She is the daughter of Jean-Marie Binoche, a director and sculptor, and Monique Stalens, a director and actress. She won an Oscar at age 32 for The English Patient but was only 23 when she starred in The Unbearable Lightness of Being. After seeing it, and her performance, one famous Yank critic wrote that she was "almost ethereal in her beauty and innocence." Welcome, ma'am, to our Pantheon.
