Personal Quote:

(on his views of women) Woman is the sun, an extraordinary creature, one that makes the imagination gallop. Woman is also the element of conflict. With whom do you argue? With a woman, of course.

Lived with Faye Dunaway from 1968 to 1970. Dunaway wanted Mastroianni to give her a child but only under the condition that he divorce Flora Carabella first. He refused, so she broke up with him. See more »
