French screen star Anouk Aimee has died aged 92. 

The actress, who became an icon of doomed romance in the 1960s thanks to the Oscar-winning A Man And A Woman, passed away on Tuesday at her home in Paris, her agent announced.

Following her passing, fans took to X, formerly Twitter, to share their heartfelt condolences to Anouk’s family and pay tribute.  

Having begun her film career at age 14, she studied acting and dance in her early years, besides her regular education. 

Although the majority of her films were French, she also made films in Spain, Great Britain, Italy and Germany, along with some American productions. 

Aimée was known for her striking features and beauty, and considered one of the hundred sexiest stars in film history -often portraying a femme fatale in films.
