35 Beautiful Photos of Maria Schneider in the 1970s

Born 1952 in Paris, French actress Maria Schneider starred opposite Marlon Brando in Last Tango in Paris (1972) at the age of nineteen, but being traumatized by a rape scene and hounded by unsavory publicity negatively affected her subsequent career.

Although Michelangelo Antonioni’s The Passenger (1975) showcased her abilities, a reputation for walking out of films mid-production resulted in her becoming unwelcome in the industry. However, she re-established stability in her personal and professional life in the early 1980s, and became an advocate for equality and improving the conditions actresses worked under.

Schneider continued acting in film and TV until a few years before she died in 2011 after a long illness, aged 58. Take a look at these vintage photos to see portraits of a young Maria Schneider in the 1970s.
