Both her parents were actors in feature films and the avant-garde theatre, and her father was a theater director...At age fourteen Delpy obtained a role in the film Detective, directed by Jean-Luc Godard. Two years later, Delpy was cast in the title role in the film Beatrice, and used the money she earned to pay for her first trip to New York City. Delpy continued making regular trips to New York over the next few years, before finally moving there in 1990. Delpy became an international celebrity after starring in the 1991 film Europa Europa.

Delpy was subsequently offered to appear in several Hollywood and European films. In 1993, she was cast by director Krzysztof Kieślowski to play the female lead in Three Colors: White, the second film of Kieślowski's Three Colors Trilogy; Delpy also appeared in the other films in the series, albeit in smaller roles. She has starred in many American and European productions since then, including Disney's The Three Musketeers (1993), and Killing Zoe (1994). Delpy may be best known internationally for her co-starring role with Ethan Hawke in director Richard Linklater's 1995 film, Before Sunrise. The film received glowing reviews[4] and was considered one of the most significant films of the independent film movement of the 1990s

Delpy has also had an interest in a career as a film director since her childhood, and enrolled in a summer directing course at New York University. She wrote and directed the short film Blah Blah Blah (1995), which screened at the Sundance Film Festival. She made her feature length directorial debut in 2002, with a film entitled Looking for Jimmy, which she also wrote and produced. 2007 saw the release of 2 Days in Paris in which Delpy not only starred in the film (with Adam Goldberg), but also directed, wrote, edited, co-produced it and wrote the original music. The film also features Delpy's real-life parents, Marie Pillet and Albert Delpy.

Delpy is a musical artist. She released a self-titled CD in 2003. Three tracks from the album, "A Waltz For A Night", "An Ocean Apart" and "Je t'aime tant" were featured in Before Sunset.

Delpy lives in Los Angeles, California, USA and has been a naturalized United States citizen since 2001, although she also retains her French citizenship.
