#Quote
1I don't know if paradise or hell exists, but I'm sure hell is more groovy.
2I was lonely, but I have no regrets. I have loved, cried, been mad with happiness. I have won and I have lost.
3If you want "la dolce vita", it is how you look at life. When I go back to Rome, my roses will be in bloom again.
4They would like to keep up the story that [Federico Fellini] made me famous, Fellini discovered me. So many have said they discovered me.
5When you're born beautiful, it helps you start in the business. But then it becomes a handicap.
6I'm very much bigger than I was, so what? It's not really fatness, it's development.
7I'm very proud of my breasts, as every woman should be. It's not cellular obesity, it's womanliness.
8How can I know who's PM or in government in Sweden? It's been 40 years since I moved abroad! Oh!

6Is one of five Swedish actresses to be nominated for a Golden Globe Award. The others are Ingrid Bergman, Lena Olin, Ann-Margret and Rebecca Ferguson.
7Was considered for the role of Honey Rider in the first James Bond film Dr. No (1962), which went to Ursula Andress. Ekberg later co-starred with Andress in the Western comedy 4 for Texas (1963).
8Had not lived in Sweden since the early 1950s and rarely visited the country. She had welcomed Swedish journalists in her house outside Rome, and in 2005, appeared on the radio program "Sommar", talking about her life. She stated in an interview that she would not move back to Sweden before her death, since she would be buried there. Ekberg said that the Swedish people and media have not appreciated her sufficiently; nevertheless, her personal and radio appearances have been popular in Sweden.
9In December 2011, Ekberg was destitute following three months in a hospital with a broken thigh in Rimini, during which her home was robbed of jewelry and furniture, and her villa was badly damaged in a fire. She applied for help from the Fellini Foundation, which also found itself in difficult financial straits.
10On July 19, 2009, she was admitted to the San Giovanni Hospital in Rome, after falling ill in her home in Genzano, according to a medical official in its neurosurgery department. Despite her condition not being considered serious, Ekberg was put under observation in the facility.
11Had a long involvement with Tyrone Power that began when she was uncredited in his film The Mississippi Gambler (1953). She was involved with him during his subsequent tour of "John Brown's Body" and showed up in New York while he was filming The Eddy Duchin Story (1956). At one point, he took her to Cincinnati with him to meet his family. This all took place while he was married to Linda Christian. Christian describes the affair, but never mentions Ekberg's name, in her autobiography.
12Best known by the public for her role as Sylvia Rank in Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita (1960), which features the famous scene of her cavorting in Rome's Trevi Fountain, clad in a black gown with a plunging neckline.
13Returned to Sweden in 1964 to appear in her first Swedish movie, Bo Widerberg's Kärlek 65 (1965), but canceled her appearance because, she said, "Widerberg was such an amateur!".
