Personal Quote:

As you get older you become more understanding. When I was young it was all about me. I was very egocentric. Now it is a pleasure to work with young people who have talent. It is a continuity for me. It is a way to go on...and, I think, a way to grow old.


Energetic, passionate French ballerina from Les Ballet des Champs Elysees whose phenomenal success in Carmen led to a brief Hollywood career in the 50s. See more »
