You can fake your age or mask it, but the passion that moves the characters has to be real.
My only friends were boys, and I was just one more of them.
I went to dance classes from 9 in the morning until 1, then to school from 3 to 10 at night, always under the threat that if I failed a single course I could forget about dancing.
I chose the most explosive dress I could find. I put a ton of makeup on and some great round earrings. I looked like Jennifer Jones in Duel in the Sun.
My current companion, Gerard de Battista, is the father of my two sons.
The director took my face in his hands and asked me to show him my teeth, as with a horse. This happened on a Wednesday, and by the following Monday I was shooting.
Keep your ears open, your eyes open, grab everything you can, react, and learn!
Psychiatrists don't solve anything from one day to the next.
People love coming on television, even if they have to show their miseries.
I'm a small and normal girl, and stories like mine no one likes to tell. Fortunately so, because I wouldn't like to play myself.
When I said I was going to audition for a film, I got a hearty laugh from all my family.
The film kept me from working as a secretary. It was a real stroke of luck. A miracle.
On my fifth film, it was then that I stopped dancing.
When you have to get into the character each morning, give it your voice, your face, it was torture.
I like men with some belly who are a little over the hill.
Acting is the work of two people - it's only possible when you have the complicity, the help, even the manipulation of a director.
Compared to dancing, films seemed to me to be the work of lay bums. There was no physical pain; it was enough to say and imagine what was in the script. It was very easy for me.
My first vocation was dance.
There's nothing more human than two people making love.
For most of my career, I've played roles that were written for other actresses.
I didn't go to school a lot.
I really wanted to work and become independent.
