Good friends with French actress Brigitte Bardot.
I never felt scandal and confession were necessary to be an actress. I've never revealed myself or even my body in films. Mystery is very important.
And also, Sergio Leone was considered in Italy a director of category B, not a big director.
Many other movies, but for me The Professionals is the best I did in Hollywood.
I wasn't speaking a word of Italian until I was 18. They had to dub my voice in my first Italian picture!
It is with passion and dedication that I will be attentive to the needs of women and fight relentlessly for their rights.
