"I'm not at all like either of them," she said while winding up her scenes in the film "The Indifferent Ones" in Rome. "I'd like to be thought of as just plain Claudia Cardinale." The 23-year-old actress, who reluctantly started her career less than five years ago after winning a beauty contest in her native Tunisia, doesn't consider herself the usual type of movie star at all. "I'm introverted," she said. "Other actresses seem to be more outgoing than me. More exuberant. But I've always been shy and I .don't think I'll ever change." The poised, brown haired beauty paused a moment, then admitted: "I have changed in one respect, though. I love acting now and I was certain I wouldn't when I started." Despite her desire to have her own image, Miss Car- dinale expressed great admiration for both her illustrious peers. "Gina is a good friend of mine, a wonderful woman and a fine actress. I've never met. Sophia, but I think her acting is excellent and she's certainly a beautiful woman. It's flattering to have people compare us, but it's wrong." There's no mistaking the fact, however, that Miss Cardinale is Italy's hottest female film property since "La Loren" and "La Lolla." Her recent m o v i e s include F e d e r i c o Fellini's "81/2"; "The Leopard,' with Hurt Lancaster; "The Pink Panther," with David Niven, and "The Indifferent Ones," with Rod Steiger and Shelley Winters. Miss Cardinale recently flew to Spain to begin Samuel Bronston's : epic "The Circus," in which she costars with John Wayne. Miss Cardinale was interviewed in the dining room of the Roman villa where the film "The Indifferent Ones" was shot. She started to read an article about herself in an Italian magazine, then put it down. "Sometimes you can get the strangest impressions of yourself from these," she said. "As though you're an entirely different person. I don't think I've changed much at all." The daughter of an Italian railroad worker in Tunis and a French mother, Miss Cardinale was ready five years ago to became a teacher in the p o v e r t y stricken Sahara desert of Tunisia. She had a teacher's certificate and full intention of trying to do something to help the youngsters of a desert town get an education. But then she was pulled into a contest for the "most beautiful Italian of Tunis" and won easily. The prize was a trip to the Venice film "festival. From then on movie offers came to her "until I couldn't bear it any more. I returned to Tunis and refused to sign a contract with anyone," she recalled. It took a producer six months to sell her on the movies, she said. She came to Rome with, her parents, two brothers and sister and took a home in Castel Giubileo, a small town outside the city. Her first film, "Big Deal on Madonna Street," started her-on the way to success. Now, 21 films later, she admits movies are in her blood. "Sometimes I think I'd like to take a rest," she said. "But I really don't have time. There's always a new role to consider. I work hard, but I like it more all the time. "I often think I'd like to have a house all to myself in the country," . she said. "A place where I could gather my thoughts between films and relax a little." As Miss Cardinale walked t h r o u g h her final film scenes in "The Indifferent Ones," an assistant who has worked on several films with the star offered a bit of praise. "Claudia h a s qualities that set her apart from most o t h e r stars I've known," he said. "She's always calm and amiable. She has an attractive simplicity, a lack of complication that you wouldn't expect in a girl of that age who's had so m u c h success. You couldn't find an easier per"son to work with."
