Jane Birkin is recovering from a stroke.
The actress/singer was scheduled to make an appearance at the American Film Festival in Deauville, France, but on Monday, a family representative issued a statement to AFP confirming she wouldn’t be in attendance.
"(Birkin) suffered a minor form of stroke a few days ago," they said, before adding that the 74-year-old is "doing well".
Birkin was set to promote Jane by Charlotte, a documentary film about her life directed by her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg.
The star, who shot to fame in France after performing alongside Serge Gainsbourg on La Chanson de Slogan - the theme song for their 1969 movie Slogan - has mainly resided in Paris since the late 1960s.
