Deneuve is honored in New York.

Deneuve's daughter, film actress Chiara Mastroianni, spoke of a mother who was fearless off-screen as well, noting her involvement in public protests against the death penalty and for abortion rights. She also spoke humorously of growing up with a glamorous film star as a mother, noting that when Deneuve would sing on the streets, as she has in several films, "I pretended she wasn't my mom ... I would change sidewalks."

Also on hand at the ceremony at Alice Tully Hall was French director Francois Ozon, who recently directed Deneuve in the comedy "Potiche," reuniting her with Gerard Depardieu. He cited a famous Depardieu quote about his co-star: "Catherine Deneuve is the man I've always wanted to be."
