Below I am hesitantly supplying a link to an interview with Sylvia Kristel that I don't find particularly well done. I find the interviewer's tone to be pretty disrespectful and I the title of the article is frankly ridiculous, Sylvia Kristel has been a alot of things in her life but 'porn star' isn't one of them. I am posting it though because Sylvia rarely gives English language interviews and I wanted to do a small part in promoting the release of her English language autobiography, which I am eagerly anticipating.
So here is an interview with one of my favorite actresses written by someone who probably isn't aware (or would care) that he is talking to an artist who managed to appear in films directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet, Roger Vadim, Walerian Borowczyk, and Claude Chabrol within the span of two years.
I am also including a second link that is a little better read and at least mentions Chabrol but doesn't go farther than that. The thing that I can most defiantly say about both of these interviews is that Sylvia seems a lot more 'respectful' than the people she is talking to. The third link is to a ten minute British radio interview in which you can actually hear Sylvia's still lovely Dutch accented voice.
Sylvia's English language translation of her French book NUE has been retitled UNDRESSING EMMANUELLE and it is available for pre-order at Amazon Canada or is ready to ship from the UK.
