Catherine Deneuve is set to be presented with the prestigious Chaplin Award in the US.
The Potiche actress is the latest in a long line of esteemed stars to be awarded the prize - named after its first recipient, Charlie Chaplin in 1972, Variety has reported.
Catherine, 65, will be honoured in April by the Film Society of Lincoln Centre. Previous winners include Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese and Meryl Streep.
The centre's director Rose Kuo said: "It will be an honour to have Catherine Deneuve join our list of past honorees."
She added: "It will be a joy to create an evening of style and grace befitting such an iconic screen presence."
The veteran star's latest movie, Les Biens-aimes (The Beloved), was screened during the Cannes Film Festival last year.
