Léa Seydoux was born in 1985 in Paris, France, to Valérie Schlumberger, a philanthropist, and Henri Seydoux, a businessman. Her grandfather, Jérôme Seydoux, is chairman of Pathé, and her father is a great-grandson of businessman and inventor Marcel Schlumberger (her mother also descends from the Schlumberger family). Her parents are both of mixed French and Alsatian German descent, with more distant Spanish-Venezuelan roots on her father's side. In 2009, she was nominated for the César Award for Most Promising Actress for her role in the film "The Beautiful Person". She has been cast in a number of notable American films such as Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds", Ridley Scott's "Robin Hood", Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" and Brad Bird's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol". As a special prize for their roles in "Blue Is the Warmest Color", Seydoux and co-star Adèle Exarchopoulos were awarded the Palme d'Or alongside director Abdellatif Kechiche. Along with Jane Campion, Seydoux and Exarchopoulos are the only women to have ever won a Palme d'Or.
