That explains why Françoise Dorléac and Catherine Deneuve look alike. I did not know that they were related.

Yes, elder sister Françoise Dorléac was already a well known actress when Catherine decided to follow her into the acting profession. She chose to use her mother's maiden name of Deneuve instead.

Their mother is actress Renée Simonot (born Jeanne Renée Deneuve).
