"Beauty is not important, you have to be interesting, someone who is different to other people. Otherwise you just turn up and look beautiful, and there’s nothing more to you. I have never been beautiful. I’ve never been a beautiful doll. In fact when I started, people didn’t want to hire me because I wasn’t photogenic. People thought my mouth was too big, they wanted me to make my nose shorter, t…o have straighter teeth. It would have been too hard. I said, well I’ll go back home to Pozzuoli then, I don’t want to change my face. Then I suffered a lot because people said that I wasn’t photogenic at all. In the film industry, if you’re not photogenic it means you can’t became an actress or actor. But things have got better and better thanks to photographers and others, who know how to portray my face better on the screen. I didn’t change my face at all, they just got better at it."
