Though she said she never saw herself as an icon, I do! I saw a documentary about her a few months ago and she was just as amazing when she was young as she was as an adult. She saved an english soldier in worldwar II wow! She was so young but had the courage to do that and become one of the great actresses of all times! And she was ambassader of Unicef for many years! I also saw her on Rai1 last week and she speaks fluently italian... I hope to be a little bit like her one day..
