French cinema star Catherine Deneuve has suffered a mild stroke while filming her latest movie.

Denueve’s family said in a statement that the 76-year-old actress suffered a “very limited and therefore reversible” stroke.

They added that “fortunately, she has no motor deficits (but) must, of course, take some time to rest”.
