Zitat des Tages von Francesca Annis:
I couldn't imagine playing someone young now; it would be so boring.
If people think I look good, it's the make-up.
I was asked to be in Vogue but I said no. I didn't want to advertise make-up. I didn't want to be seen as a sex symbol.
I like having a good time. It's probably my mother's Brazilian genes in me - party, party.
I didn't choose to be an actress.
I consulted a Chinese herbalist and spent two weeks on an island off the coast of Zanzibar. I was away from any kind of contemporary technology.
The minute anyone's getting anxious I say, You must eat and you must sleep. They're the two vital elements for a healthy life.
I was seen dancing at school by a director, who asked me to be in a TV play. And it had a huge impact. So I think that's what really started me off.
You have to be careful not to let your fear stop you doing things. It's very exciting to test yourself.
I don't need a piece of paper to suggest that I can commit myself.
Judi Dench and Ian McKellen taught me how to work hard and respect the theatre.
Thank God we're not like America. Everyone wants to look like they're 20. In Europe we admire grown-up women; I think men revere older women.
The thing about doing anything artificial to your hair is that you have to look after it. So you're always vulnerable to the weather and time.
However successful you are, there is no substitute for a close relationship. We all need them.
Everything has changed. An interview has become such a confrontational thing. It makes you very defensive.
You can love more than one person in your life, but things will be different. There'll be a different dynamic. Needs and desires change.
I am not going to share my private life with millions of people. I don't find a need to do that and nobody else close to me does either.
Too often, older women are seen as victims, but I know lots of formidable women who have marvellous jobs as well as a full erotic life, and children and friends and family.
From 1 till 7, when we moved to England, I spoke only Portuguese.
Roman's wife Sharon Tate had been murdered by Charles Manson the year before, but Roman had been through so much leaving the Warsaw ghetto that he was very strong and private.
Sometimes sushi is just superb, and other times there's nothing like a great big steak. It depends where your taste buds are at the time.
Having children with someone is the real bond.
Some actors get fired up by the sound of the audience. I just want to retreat.
I'm an actress, not a pinup.
I've never been married and I've no more desire to be married now than I ever have. I hate bureaucracy and I am not religious.
I can feel the 60S looming. In my profession, I've just moved along with my age. By thinking in decades, rather than whether someone's 42 or 47, you can give yourself a whole 10 years to turn yourself around in.
You can be revered for all sorts of qualities, but to be truly charismatic is rare. Elizabeth Taylor was, for me, one of those rarities.
I maintain the rather old-fashioned view that this is my work and it's in the public arena, but that doesn't entitle everyone to know what happened at home before coming here.
I turned down a lot of films.
I have made a public statement about me and Ralph by being seen with him. I don't need to make any other. You can live the way you want.
I've always kept fit but I've been doing gym and yoga and will be throwing my stilettoes away for a while!
I used to suffer from excessive pride. Well, I got over that one.
I don't buy the tabloids, but you're surrounded by it all and people tell you things they've read. I'd be sitting on a train looking over someone's shoulder and thinking: That's familiar... oh my God, it's me.
I go on giving interviews because I've been brought up to support the projects I'm involved in. When you've enjoyed working on a production, you want to do them a favour.
The funny thing is I'm not bothered or sad about being on my own - after all I've never had a husband.
I have always done exercise because I was a dancer, and it is probably good for you. I have done yoga consistently.
