Personal Quotes (3)

The Mafia has the same fascination as the monarchy. But I am not mafioso. I could never do that. I like to speak too much. I am not discreet. I would die immediately.
[on why she did not do more Hollywood films] They wanted nothing more than to expose my body. I refused so much work.
[on working with Al Pacino] He would want to speak with me, I could tell. But sometimes it is not important to speak. When you have a good feeling, the eyes speak.
