Carole Bouquet (born 18 August 1957) is a French actress and fashion model, who has appeared in more than 40 films since 1977. Bouquet was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France.

Her classical good looks won her a role as the Bond girl Melina Havelock in the 1981 movie For Your Eyes Only, but she also acted in a number of mainstream European films throughout the 1980s and continues to do so in France.

She is also recognized for her work in Luis Buñuel's surrealist classic That Obscure Object of Desire (1977), and in the internationally successful film Too Beautiful For You (1989), for which she won the César Award for Best Actress. Also she received a César Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Rive droite, rive gauche (1984).

Bouquet was a model for Chanel in the 1980s-1990s.[1][2] She is the widow of producer Jean-Pierre Rassam with whom she had a son, Dimitri Rassam.[3][4] From 1997 to 2005, she dated actor Gérard Depardieu, with whom she had worked several times. Bouquet was engaged to him from 2003 to 2005.[citation needed]

In 1999 she was also a member of the jury of the 4th Shanghai International Film Festival.[5]

In 2014 she was also a member of the jury of the 67th Cannes Film Festival.[6]
