Annie Girardot (25 October 1931-28 February 2011) was a French actress. She began performing in 1954, making her film debut in Treize à table.

She won the Prix Suzanne Bianchetti in 1956, and in 1977 won the César Award for Best Actress portraying the title character in Docteur Françoise Gailland. In 2002, she was awarded the César Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Piano Teacher. She collaborated with director Michael Haneke again, in the 2005 film Caché.

Another of her famous roles is Nadia the prostitute in Luchino Visconti's epic Rocco e i suoi fratelli (1960). Nadia's beauty drives a wedge between Rocco and his brother Simone (Renato Salvatori), who eventually rapes her. In contrast to their violent on-camera relationship, Girardot and Salvatori married in 1962. They had a daughter, Giulia, and later separated but never divorced.

The 21 September 2006 issue of magazine Paris Match revealed that she was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Giradot died on February 28, 2011 in Paris.
