After 60 years in film, actress Claudia Cardinale reveals that cinema saved her life

No plastic surgery, no silicon.. nothing, just a God masterpiece.

In a career spanning more than six decades, the enigmatic Claudia Cardinale lit up the screen with her breathtaking presence.

Not planning on becoming one of the greatest actors of the golden era, Cardinale followed the path to stardom, that was oftentimes paved by trauma.

Outliving the now-deceased Hollywood giants that she once shared the screen, and still going strong at 85, she says “cinema saved my life.”

As an iconic actress, Claudia Cardinale has left an indelible mark on Italian and international film. Her talent, beauty, and versatility allowed her to portray a wide range of complex and memorable characters throughout her career.

Cardinale’s iconic status as an international film star is not only due to her talent but also her distinctive Mediterranean beauty and her ability to captivate audiences with her charismatic presence on screen.

And what is even more impressive is that this 85-year-old actress is still going strong and remains active in the movie industry.

The Tunisian-born Italian, who grew up in a multilingual family, was studying to be a teacher when she was discovered at 18.

The glossy-haired, French-speaking young woman was taken in by the pageantry of an Italian film festival, when she was pulled from the crowd and crowned Most Beautiful Italian Girl in Tunisia.

“I was helping my mother and people from the Italian government organize an Italian film festival in Tunisia. I was looking at the girls on the stage and I wasn’t supposed to be there. Someone pushed me out on the stage and I was named the Most Beautiful Girl in Tunisia,” she said.

The prize was a trip to the Venice film festival, a foretelling adventure for the young woman, who received many offers from producers.

Initially turning down the offers, Cardinale explained in an interview, “It’s like a man. When he’s going after you, if you say yes immediately, after a little time he goes away. If you say no, he desires you for a long time.
