  • Thanks very much for coming again.

  • You look fantastic.

  • Thank you.

  • I've only said you're the most beautiful woman in the world.

  • A few times.

  • Is that difficult to hear over and over again?

  • So difficult.

  • I cannot tell you really?

  • Because I can't stand it when I get it.

  • But it's very please, you know, But I know you do look fantastic.

  • Very nice to have you back here.

  • And you've got a movie out.

  • The innocent?

  • Yes.

  • Yes.

  • We just saw this clip here, and we heard you.

  • A little bit You're doing is that you're doing a German act?

  • German accent?

  • Yes.

  • This time I'm playing German.

  • Last time I played and Harry in, uh was here and then played Russian.

  • French.

  • I got an accent, so I have to camouflage it with other accents.

  • So is it hard?

  • Is it hard to do a German accent?

  • What's it?

  • Yes.

  • You know, German accent was you know why?

  • It was hard?

  • Because I think all of us when we want to do something cruel, we go with a little accent and we make a little Nazi immediately.

  • And that was the problem.

  • I had a German accent equals cruel.

  • That's what you're saying exactly.

  • I know it's a stereotype, but I know it's awful.

  • It kind of does, though.

  • I mean, yes, you know, we do it always when we were kids.

  • So when I had to play this wonderful, warm woman from Berlin bit, you know, strange, but very warm.

  • And it took me so much, you know, to try to be warm and speak with an accent it was trying to do right, Because because when you speak German, you sort of start of, you know, you want to be Colonel Klink.

  • You know you want to.

  • You want to go into that.

  • You want to wear a Monaco, you know, exactly.

  • Immediately.

  • And a fake arm and cruelty.

  • Cruelty.

  • You know, I shouldn't be saying it because it's a stereotype.

  • These stereotypes are fun.

  • All right, Now they're wrong, but they're fun.

  • Now, uh, now your your accent is tell us about your actually got this fantastic accent.

  • Uh, it is, I think, in French.

  • I grew up in French and Italian bilingual because my mother lived in France and my father lived in Italy.

  • Uh, but my mother is Swedish, so I learned I actually learned English in Sweden because everybody speaks English in Sweden.

  • You really have a piece of these three accents?

  • Yes, but I didn't speak English.

  • I don't speak Swedish very well.

  • You know, when I was a kid, a little bit, but I forgot it.

  • So I learned it there.

  • So because sometimes people say, Oh, I can hear the Italian, but there you just Swedish And maybe the Swedish is because I've learned it there.

  • Well, it worked out very well.

  • I mean, it could have you could have combined all these different accents and come out with something that sounded like Lower Bronx or something.

  • You know, this This worked out nicely.

  • It's such a great voice, I think people that come from Boston and I grew up just hating because everybody in Boston has this, you know, sort of twang.

  • And American people just I think a lot of them, sometimes they hear.

  • I thought, like in Boston, you had, like, an aristocratic accent.

  • That's why not where I was.

  • No, not really.

  • You know, a lot of people talking about Cal Jastremski it's not really that aristocratic, but but actually that does sound very nice, but And go.

  • Yes, I used to say at Fenway Park, You see, you flee the country.

  • If you heard someone, you get out.

  • You know how we do it in, In, In, in Europe, when we do an imitation of an American accent, people they don't open their mouth whenever you have to imitate an American.

  • That's how you go.

  • Uh, that's how it sounds to a fart.

  • Sounds like the teacher on Charlie Brown and actually, doesn't it?

  • What a lot.

  • Thank you for it.

  • It wasn't.

  • Hang on one second because we want to talk a little more about the movie and a lot of other things, too.

  • Can you hang on for a minute?

  • We're gonna do a commercial.

  • We'll have more with Isabella Rossellini in the last segment.

  • Actually, I I brought up Charlie Brown.

  • How well do you know American TV?

  • Do you know America?

  • You know I Well, when I grew up in Italy and France, we saw renting Tin and all the great American shows really rich and the other one that nobody remembers.

  • I loved it.

  • It was called Gorky.

  • The boy from the circus.

  • A name like that's a huge hit here.

  • Yeah, he was a huge in Europe.

  • Gorky, The boy from the circus.

  • It was all the adventures.

  • Okay.

  • Gorky, Or is he kind of weird?

  • How is Gorky?

  • No.

  • Gorky had an elephant, and you know it, right?

  • I love that thing.

  • And then in America, I would always say, Oh, Gorky, I would love to meet Gorky where he's broke into.

  • It wasn't a success here.

  • And how would people respond?

  • Oh, good.

  • I'm in America.

  • And the first thing that comes to mind is Gorky.

  • I must see Gorky.

  • Did you ever watch the old Batman series?

  • Because Robin, Burt Ward is in the building.

  • He's actually here and he's eating out.

  • Yeah, but I've never seen his show.

  • You never saw that show?

  • Well, of course, because we know Gorky.

  • Yeah, Who cares about that man when you got Gorky, right?

  • That's, uh, now they when you see shows in Italy, of course, they put other voices on it.

  • You know that Nobody had heard the voice of, uh, Humphrey Bogart.

  • Marlon Brando.

  • Everything is looped, but everything is looked all over the world.

  • Yeah, it's very strange, because when you're American and you're visiting.

  • It's very weird to see American TV because it sounds to us like it's all the same.

  • Voice a very deep voiced guy.

  • I remember watching The Cosby Show, and it was just, you know, I think I was in Spain or something.

  • And he was just Yes, yeah, it was really important.

  • Tonto Tu casa.

  • I have done a small part in an Italian movie and the mandate looped in Italian.

  • Forrest Gump got so many compliments because they want so many Academy Awards.

  • You know, we were on the set and people went and say congratulations, you know?

  • And he said, Thank you very much, You know, if he never met anybody, probably.

  • But he also he probably gave it a really deep voice.

  • Yeah, it's probably the people that life is like a box of chocolate.

  • You know what?

  • It's probably it sounded like that.

  • Probably the star Looper.

  • They look all the actors, you know, all the lead actors.

  • It's done by two or three guys that are just excel and looping.

  • And they do the women too, huh?

  • It's very cheap.

  • They should spend more money on that right now.

  • You were you were actually, uh, didn't you translate for a while?

  • You were translated.

  • Well, I translate for my life, you know, because I've always, uh, a movies in Europe with somebody who's American doesn't speak climate.

  • So that's how I was a translator.

  • I worked before I was a model and then became an actress before all that, I worked for television doing a little bit these kind of shows.

  • And since I was sent on modeling after this, Yes, yes, that's what I'm saying.

  • I can't wait.

  • Basically, since I travel everywhere because they sent me there because I knew languages, then I always ended up translating for the producer and the other people and helping, So I did a lot of translation has a lot of experience with that.

  • And also, you've been with Lancome now for I've been for a long time.

  • For 14 years, you've been you've been the face of Lancome for 14 years.

  • That's really incredible.

  • Someone else is going to have to replace you?

  • That Yes, well, we finished working together last January.

  • Now they will see probably photo of mine for about another year, year and a half because the campaign was distributed in 100 and 40 countries for 14 years.

  • That's the technical word to pull all the my photos away from airplane airports.

  • You know, it's not a nice term.

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
