I think I need to go with Charles Boyer for the actor. Besides film, he did some great radio appearances.

For the actress, well, for one role only (What's New Pussycat), I'm a fan of Capucine. Maybe not the best French actress, but the question was about my favourite. I have a weakness for French nymphomaniac characters.

For what it's worth, "What's New Pussycat" is also my favourite movie set in Paris.

For the Female French Actress it's Catherine Deneuve.

As for the Male French Actor I've got 3:

Charles Boyer(he made a Great Napoleon in Conquest,he has a great voice as well)
Louis Jourdan(he plays great villain's)
Jean Reno(he's very good in anything he does in fact he was the only good thing about a 1998 movie with a big lizard)
