She was beloved in France and known for her roles in films, her singing career, and her warm personality.

Birkin gained recognition for her advocacy for women's and LGBTQ rights.

Her song "Je t'aime... moi non plus" with Serge Gainsbourg caused controversy and was banned by the BBC.

Birkin lived in France since the late 1960s and was admired for her British accent when speaking French.

She inspired the famous Birkin bag by Hermès due to her struggle with a bag during a flight.

Birkin is survived by her daughters Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, who are also involved in the arts.

She leaves behind a lasting legacy and will be remembered for her contributions to French culture.
