During the shooting of Justine (1969), she and actor Michael York were very much at odds with director George Cukor (who had replaced Joseph Strick). Aimée used to leave the set quite often- to be with her fiancé Albert Finney- and threaten never to come back, something that slowed down the shooting. Cukor stated in interviews that he felt Anouk's acting inability damaged the movie. See more »
