Two motorized thieves snatched Catherine Deneuve's purse Friday as the actress was strolling on a side street of Paris's Champs-Elysees.

The purse snatchers grabbed her bag as they drove past on a motorscooter, but Deneuve, 44, was not hurt and later filed a complaint at the Champs-Elysees police station.Deneuve's elegant features served as a model in 1985 for a recasting of "Marianne," the Republican maiden of the 1789 French Revolution whose bust, with a pointed cap, stands in town halls across the country.
