She was incredible photogenic, probably the most camera benevolent person that I ever had in front of my lense. Taking pictures of Romy Schneider was always like a gift. STERN sent me to her seven times between 1976 and 1981 - at a time when the curious girl that hides in the body of a beautiful woman transformed more and more into a weary actress who felt that life was asking too much from her. But even at the end of her life, when her thin hair and her flickering eyelids could no longer be overlooked, she only needed a little make-up, and she got her glamour back again. I told her that. "Normally you really look like a grey mouse, but in front of the camera you look like a queen." She liked that.
