Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin is a British film actress known for her bold role choices, and she’s been equally fearless in her forays into music. A regular voice for French composer Serge Gainsbourg — and the mother of their daughter, actress-singer Charlotte Gainsbourg — Birkin’s biggest hit was the sexuality explicit “Je t’aime…moi non plus” (“I love you…me neither”) that was so controversial in 1969 it was banned on radio stations in many countries. Birkin recorded 13 albums and appeared in the films “Dust” with Trevor Howard,”Death on the Nil” and “Daddy Nostalgie/These Foolish Things” with Dirk Bogarde. She has also been active with Amnesty International fighting the death penalty and AIDS, was an activist in Sarajevo during the siege, a campaigner for democracy in Burma & Aung San Suu Kyi for the last 10 years, and currently works toward the preservation of french public hospitals.
