Ekberg in one sentence: Anita was one of the most beautiful European blondes of 20th century.
I am living this life without regrets.
There are no real actresses now to compare with my day, it is all completely different.
The most important thing for a good marriage is to learn how to argue peaceably.

Age is a state of mind, who is growing old? I am certainly not, my mind is as clear as when I was 20.
