Watch: Oscar Nominee Emmanuelle Riva Charms in 1959 Cannes Interview

"Amour" Sony Pictures Classics
At 85, Emmanuelle Riva is the oldest actress to ever be nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards for her raw, heartwrenching turn in Michael Haneke's "Amour." While Riva may not have had taken on the most roles over her 50-year career, she turned heads right from the start with her performance in Alain Resnais' influential "Hiroshima mon amour."

The role not only won her significant acclaim at the time, but cast such a lasting impression that it served as part of the impetus for Riva being cast in her most memorable later-in-life roles: as Juliette Binoche's mother in Krzysztof KieĊ›lowski's "Three Colors: Blue," and in Michael Haneke's "Amour."

Here's Riva at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival, looking gorgeous and being totally charming, discussing the parallels between "Hiroshima" and her own life and wondering if she'll ever top her performance in the film, which was her first.
