On Wednesday, French actress Catherine Deneuve was hospitalized for "mild stroke".

French newspaper Le Parisien broke the news Wednesday.

The legendary French actress, 76, is in hospital in Paris.

Her family confirmed a "very limited and therefore reversible" ischemic stroke, which occurs when an artery to the brain is blocked.

The outlet also noted that Deneuve was filming a scene for her upcoming film De Son Vivant when she suffered the stroke.

The famous global movie star of France in the 1960s performed with her famous 1967 Belle de Jour.

They added that "fortunately, she has no motor deficits (but) must, of course, take some time to rest".

Deneuve's career was launched in the 1964 Jacques Demy film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.

In 1993, she was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for her role in Indochine.

She sparked controversy in January 2018 when along with 99 other French female creatives signed an open letter which claimed the campaign against sexual harassment had become "the enemy of sexual freedom".

She hasn't stopped. Deneuve starred in a film released earlier this year, Fete de Famille (Happy Birthday), directed by Cedric Kahn.
