Britt Ekland in one sentence - She was one of the most beautiful Swedish women and a true representative of Swedish beauty.


The ideal man doesn't exist. A husband is easier to find.

I said I don't sleep with married men, but what I meant was I don't sleep with happily married men.

 I just like someone who satisfies me in bed and is fun, but puts no demands on me and who disappears out of my life when I want them to disappear.

I did it all for love; I was never with a man I didn't love passionately.

I've said it many times and I'll say it again to you, beauty is not a curse.

Nonetheless, it's the inner woman that matters. As you age you have to find inner strengths and exploit your God-given talents. I blossomed at 60; it was a turning point for me because I accepted growing older and I finally became me, the true Britt.
