What Claudia Cardinale has done for a first time

  • As she had a deep voice and spoke Italian with a heavy French accent, her voice was dubbed in her early movies. The Pink Panther (1963) was meant to be her first English-speaking role; however, her voice wound up being dubbed.
  • Her first starring role was playing the wife of Marcello Mastroianni in Bell' Antonio (1960). The following year, Luchino Visconti chose her for Rocco and His Brothers (1960), and by the early 1960s she was one of the busiest actresses.

Claudia Cardinale's quotes

  • I never felt scandal and confession were necessary to be an actress. I've never revealed myself or even my body in films. Mystery is very important.
  • If you're not English, you're a foreigner - so you must be sexy. It's an old British cliché.
  • [on acting] But to do this kind of work, you have to be very strong, otherwise you lose your personality, your identity. You don't know who you are. It's fantastic because I've been living thousands of lives, not only my life.
  • I wasn't speaking a word of Italian until I was 18. They had to dub my voice in my first Italian picture!
  • Luchino Visconti wanted me dark-haired, for Federico Fellini I had to be a blonde, I had long hair at the time and kept dyeing it from one to the other. The two directors were completely different, almost hated each other, I think.
