This was reported by AFP agent actress Laurent Balandras.

“Anna died yesterday (December 14th - RT ) in a Paris hospital from cancer,” he said, adding that next to the actress was her husband, American director Dennis Berry.

French Minister of Culture Frank Rester said on Twitter that with the death of Karina, French cinema "became orphaned."

Anna Karina is known for her roles in the films of the 1960s “Little Soldier”, “A Woman is a Woman”, “Live Your Own Life”, “A Gang of Outsiders” and “Mad Pierrot” by Jean-Luc Godard.

In early November, the deaths of the Franco-Swiss actress and singer Marie Laforet were reported.
