Personal Quote:

On having little to do as a Christian martyr in Quo Vadis: I simply went to the studios to draw my salary and then my days were my own.

Trivia:

Snapped at Stanley Kubrick, who is famous for doing a great deal of takes for every scene, while doing the rape scene with Malcolm McDowell and his "droogs" in A Clockwork Orange (1971). The scene required for her to be completely nude, and Stanley's continuous calls for another take made her boil over in the end. She resented Kubrick for years after the incident. See more »
