I made so many movies which were more important, but the only one people ever want to talk about is that one with Humphrey Bogart.
In Paris, when the picture came out (Casablanca ), they weren't too pleased with it. They didn't like the political point of view. The picture was taken off immediately and was never sold to television. A while ago, it was brought in and opened in five theatres in Paris, as a new movie. They had a big gala opening where I appeared and people were absolutely crazy about it.
I have grown up alone. I've taken care of myself. I worked, earned money and was independent at 18.
If you took acting away from me, I'd stop breathing.
It is not whether you really cry. It's whether the audience thinks you are crying.
Until 45 I can play a woman in love. After 55 I can play grandmothers. But between those ten years, it is difficult for an actress.
I have no regrets. I wouldn't have lived my life the way I did if I was going to worry about what people were going to say.
