You can learn so much from children, and you can give them so much.
My parents found what I was interested in and encouraged me. They didn`t put me in front of a television and buy lots of toys, the way some American parents do.
Water is always a support or a healing thing apart from, you know, love or peace of mind.
I love men who make me laugh.
Water for me is so essential, like swimming.
But when it really happens I`m very fascinated, I`m waiting for the moment, because the moment where life abandons you and death steps in, that moment must be fantastic, no?
I live for being with the people I love and to live as happily as possible.
I always have the feeling in these low states that something good is about to happen. That`s when I feel the fullest, the rawest, the closest to myself.
Having children is what a woman is born for, really.
Not that I want everything right now; but I do want everything.
It`s pleasant and bothersome and embarrassing all at once. Especially when you haven`t done much and are a celebrity.
I have these visions of myself being thirty, thirty-five, forty having a family.
It should be only a part of my life, but it isn`t. I have only one thing: my work.
The years go so fast. I mean, I just realized that at the end of the year I will be twenty-two, and I just turned twenty-one.
To be successful for a moment because of one movie doesn`t mean anything.
I wish I had had a great disappointment, a real one.
I used to dance when I was younger - ballet and modern dance.
It`s so great to love somebody and, out of that, to make a child. So that`s my goal.
I want to do movies but not talk about them.
I wish I played an instrument, but I could never decide which one, and I ended up playing nothing.
I want to feel good, I want to feel proud, I want to feel that I give someone enough and that I get enough.
And you must dare to do as many things as you dream of.
Even though things happen by accident, you also unconsciously choose things that help you.
I love oldies just kind of sweet, slinky, Fifties music. The slow stuff. And Billie Holiday.
You play a part, and as soon as a movie is over and the camera stops, you go home and you`re not really responsible for what you`ve done.
Actors, after all, dream.
I`d also like to do a play. I`ve never done theater, and constantly changing and refining a performance is something I`d like to do, even though it may sound like work to some people - and it probably is work.
It`s true what people say - that actors are the closest thing there is to children. They play.
(on Klaus Kinski) I have never met a man like my father. He is so mad, terrible and vehement at the same time. Because of him, I never knew anything other than passion. When I began to meet other people I saw that it wasn`t normal.
(on Marcello Mastroianni) I could fall in love with Marcello even though he is older than my father.
On Roman Polanski, who directed her in Tess (1979): "As a director, he was 10 times more wonderful than as a lover."
"The years went by so fast and, even though I`ve had children, which makes me feel I`ve lived a long time, I feel I didn`t really grow up. I want to fulfill the desire I have to do things that are beautiful and meaningful."
