Loving life Julio Iglesias
If anyone had predicted young Julio Iglesias that he would become a great singer, and his name would be known in all parts of the world, he would have laughed in the face of such a person. While he loved playing football and was going to enter the professional team. But a car accident put everything upside down in his life. He spent two years in the hospital, and to develop the hands, the doctor advised him to start playing the guitar. Thus music came into his life. “The success worth hellish work, even reaching the top, never stop. And more. I would have achieved nothing if not my beloved wife. Miranda was sent to me by the Lord”, – said Julio Iglesias in the exclusive interview for the “Caravan of stories” magazine, Russia.
About herself. Ornella Muti quotes
I had a difficult period in my life, so I stayed in the village, drew and painted.
I do not drink alcohol at all. I do not like the state of intoxication, and I’ve never been drunk in my life.
To grow old is sick. To deny this is hypocrite.
I’ve always been very timid and still a very timid person.
All that I did not like in people, I tried to find in myself and get rid of it. Everything I liked, I tried to obtain.
Each of us knows what is good and what is bad for him.
I like to go in for sports – this is passion.
My real name is Francesca, so my family and friends call me.
Although I love to chat, I will not say anything superfluous.
I speak German, Italian, French, Spanish and English.
I’m sentimental, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
