Hanna Schygulla (born 25 December 1943) is a German actress and chanson singer.

She was born in Kattowitz, Königshütte, Upper Silesia to German parents Antonie (née Mzyk) and Joseph Schygulla. In the 1960s, Schygulla studied Romance languages and German studies, while taking acting lessons on the side in Munich.

Acting eventually became her focus, and today she is a well-known actress, particularly for her collaborations with Rainer Werner Fassbinder. She acted in French, Italian, and American films. In the 1990s she also became known and well-regarded as a chanson singer. Schygulla has lived in Paris since 1981.

In 2002, she appeared in VB51, a performance by the artist Vanessa Beecroft.
