Personal Quote:

(on Last Tango in Paris): I felt very sad because I was treated like a sex symbol, I wanted to be recognized as an actress, and the whole scandal and aftermath of the film turned me a little crazy and I had a breakdown. See more »

Trivia:

She was originally cast to play the part of "Conchita" in Luis Buñuel's last film That Obscure Object of Desire (1977). She did not get along with the Spanish director and rejected his stereotypical ideas of women for the role he had in mind. After a few days of shooting she was replaced by actresses (Ángela Molina and Carole Bouquet). See more »
