"The red carpet has become like a parallel business. The next day, there are TV programmes, and magazines, and it's all 'Do you like the dress or not like the dress?' and 'Did she look fat?'"
"To keep borrowing dresses and jewellery is like a full-time job. And you have to be a fantasy, which you can never be, so you always feel depressed. To be an icon is a big job it's beyond acting. And sometimes it pays and sometimes it doesn't," Isabella said.
The 60-year-old, who is basically retired save for her commitment to Bulgari. She is their autumn/winter face.
Isabella left New York and moved to Long Island where she raises guide dogs and does farming. She is also studying for a degree in animal studies at New York University and will graduate in May.
