MONIQUE VAN VOOREN Can't Gain Weight Monique, Tail Actress Now DICK KLEINER NF.W YORK (NEA)--Monique Van Vooren . . . tall, blonde, full of incidental information. . . . For example, Sophia Loren has to put on J5 pounds when she makes a movie in iiurope, take off 15 pounds when she makes a movie here. . . . "Why js it," asks Monique, "thnt American men like their women bony?" t * * * MONIQUE'S weight problem is different. . . . She has to lake shots to put on some pounds. . . . Doctor's orders. . . . "It is something in my heredity," she says. "I can't gain weight. Also in heredity is the fact lhat I never get cavities. My mother is 50, never had a cavity." Monique is a serious actress these days. . . . No more cheesecake for her. . . . "I could make three times the money in clubs, or acting as a foil for a comedian. But I don't want that. If t have to work, I should at least do the things I enjoy." So this summer, she'll do a musical -- "Destry R i d e s Again"--in stock. . . . "Where I'd really like to be is on the Riviera, in St. Tropez, doing nothing and wearing no clothes. Or hardly any." * * * * SHE'S BEEN studying acting and singing for several years. . . . Classes three times a week. . . . "Now I have a big voice--as big as Dolores Grey's. But there are few parts for me. I'm not the All-Amer- K'ari girl and never will be." TV", she thinks, has been a big lielp to h e r . . . . She's done many panel shows. . . . "They prove to the public that I'm more than just a face and body."
