"I played on their need for a drunken, nightclubbing vamp"
"People only know me as a celebrity in show business. They don’t know how much more important art is to me compared to makeup and set costumes."
"In Italy I'm big because they're all so sex-obsessed. In Germany I succeeded because they've been waiting for someone like Marlene Dietrich to come along ever since the war. I played on their need for a drunken, nightclubbing vamp. And I've won the gays, who are crucial because they have all the best discos, entirely because of the extraordinary legends about me."
"I hate to spread rumours, but what else can one do with them?"
