Claudia Cardinale

I saw that there was a tribute to actress Claudia Cardinale at the Telluride Film Festival last week.

http://blogs.indiewire.com/toddmccar...n_of_telluride

And that inspired me to finally sit down and watch Once Upon a Time in the West. With all the tight close-ups of Cardinale in the movie, I was struck by how much she looked like... who?

Now it's like a melody that's stuck in my head, and I want to sing it to anyone who will listen so that they might tell me the name of the song.





What contemporary female (who's name can't I think of) looks just like CC in those pictures?

Re: Claudia Cardinale

She looks better than any of them, even though anachronistic lashes and whatnot helped the equation.

Nobody makes Monica Bellucci look average, not even the beautiful Claudia.

Re: Claudia Cardinale

Trust me, I know. I love Bellucci's work, and the fact that she's married to Cassel makes them an awesome powerhouse of acting as well.

But Cardinale, man.....she's something else.

Re: Claudia Cardinale




I meant when she was relevant....and hot.

On a serious note: Bellucci is a better actress than Cardinale. Cardinale when she was younger was hotter than Bellucci.

Re: Claudia Cardinale

Jesus...that pic you chose really shows off her rack. I almost want to say that CC's is bigger than MB's?

Not exactly contemporary, but Christina Ricci c. Anything Else + Reese Witherspoon c. Freeway ≈ Claudia Cardinale c. Girl with a Suitcase

Re: Claudia Cardinale

Probably the most beautiful woman to ever appear onscreen IMO. Beat it like it owed me money.

Re: Claudia Cardinale

My apology that she's not really "contemporary", but this is who I was thinking of:

A lot of it is the pout

Re: Claudia Cardinale

I can see it in your 1st comparison. The 2nd one...not so much.

I was working with what I could find on Google Image search and I wanted to stick to Cardinale pics from OUATITW.
The resemblance is about the pouty mouth and shape of the chin, and you really got a lot of that with Leone's straight ahead close-ups in the film, but I thought there was a good nose match in the b/w pics.
But Alicia is who I was thinking of. I realized it today when I saw Paul Rudd in EW.

Re: Claudia Cardinale

He was in Clueless;

I would say she's like a mix of Kate Mara and Jessica Simpson. But Silverstone does look like her in that first pic.

Re: Claudia Cardinale

I never saw her appeal.

Bridgette Bardot
Marilyn Monroe
Ingrid Bergman
Ava Gardner
Veronica Lake

all far more attractive.

I've always been more of a Gina Lollobrigida fan myself:





And a recent picture (don't know how recent, but she's 83 now!)--better than Claudia if you ask me:

Re: Claudia Cardinale

Cardinale looked best in 8 1/2. It's the absolute peak of her beauty.
