Emmanuelle Riva (born 24 February 1927 in Cheniménil) is a French actress.

Riva started her acting career on the Paris stage after having worked as a seamstress. Her best known role was as the (unnamed) female lead in Hiroshima mon amour (1959).

She has also appeared in Adua e le compagne, Léon Morin, prêtre, Thérèse Desqueyroux (for which she won the Volpi Cup for best actress at the Venice Film Festival), Thomas l'imposteur, The Eyes, the Mouth, Blue as the mother of Juliette Binoche's character, and Venus Beauty Institute. She has continued to act in films in the 21st century.

While filming Hiroshima mon amour, Riva photographed Hiroshima; a half-century later these photographs were exhibited at the Nikon Salon and were issued in book form in France and Japan.

Riva is also a published poet.
