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.
Britt was one of the judges in the Miss Universe pageant in 1976.
Ekland was a major movie star in Italy.
Britt starred in about 50 movies but is best known for her seductive role as a Bond girl (in The Man with the Golden Gun) and her great role in the British cult horror film The Wicker Man.
She was married to Peter Sellers (1964–1968) and Slim Jim Phantom (1984–1992)
Her first husband Sellers suffered a heart attack in bed on their wedding night.
Britt’s mother died after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She is currently involved with the Alzheimer’s Disease Association.
