Modelling killed me.
I am a strong Ukrainian girl, that is why I work a lot.
I love making independent movies, and that's pretty much what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my years.
Rather than go to the gym, I would prefer to do martial arts because the time goes by quicker.
At the age of 16 I was already dreaming of having a baby because I felt myself to be an adult, but my mum forbid it. Right now, I feel like a teenager and I want to have fun for one or two more years before starting a family.
From now on, I approach the cinema as a business woman. I intend to be in more action movies because, apart from Angelina Jolie, no other actress stands out in this genre.
People say that I'm always late, but that's a myth.
I just want to make one really good movie a year. And when I die, to know I was honest as an artist.
Before, being a model, it was just a job, and I was making fun of it. But today, I take my career more seriously. The fact that a reader may buy an Armani item because she'd seen it on me in a magazine is very important to me. So much so that I intend to launch my own label.
It's going to seem idiotic to say this, but I think that at a given moment we all need a place to ourselves where we can refuge ourselves and cut ourselves off from the world.
During the day I force myself to at least eat some salads rather than rubbish, and a steak in the evening. In fact, I eat to basically satisfy my hunger. I hardly have the time to appreciate a meal, and I'm everything, but a gourmet.
Scratch a Russian, and you'll find a peasant.
