And now for the good parts *grin*, enjoy… and you just gotta love her quotes…
"You have to be born a sex symbol. You don’t become one. If you’re born with it, you’ll have it even when you’re 100 years old."
"Sex is like washing your face – just something you do because you have to. Sex without love is absolutely ridiculous. Sex follows love, it never precedes it."
"Everything you see I owe to spaghetti."
"I can’t bear being seen naked. I’m not exactly a tiny woman. When Sophia Loren is naked, this is a lot of nakedness."
"Sex appeal is fifty percent what you’ve got and fifty percent what people think you’ve got."
