I live in Paris but I feel I am a daughter of Europe.
Being an actress is the sublimation of feminity.
My body is so important to me... my face, my arms, my legs, my hands, my eyes, everything. I use everything I have.
As a European, I need to stay in Europe and I make Italian movies, French movies. Then to come to America is something interesting for me.
Time destroys everything.
I wouldn't want to be 20 again for anything.
An actor works with their soul and their thought.
I like comedies, I like thrillers, I like love stories. Everything is beautiful; it depends if the film is good, who cares? Everything is interesting.
