Quotes:

“Because beauty isn’t enough, there must be something more.”

“I put my money in the bank: I have to think of life after modeling, when I’m not famous any more.”

“For me, it’s a compliment to be compared with Marilyn, the unforgettable actress, the most beautiful one of all. But, curves aside, we have very little in common.”

“I don’t think I ever had a swollen head: I remember where I come from.”

“I play a role in front of the cameras, just like in the movies.”

“I love photo sessions. I’m alone, I’m the queen, everyone’s taking care of me.”
