#Fact
1She was very interested in foreign languages from a young age. She was fluent in English, Italian and French.
2One son, Giannis Papamihail , born 1969.
3Her 1963 movie, Htypokardia sto thranio (1963), ("Heartbeating in High School") was shot simultaneously in Greek and Turkish, with two different casts, one Greek, one Turkish. The Turkish version was called Siralardaki heyecanlar (1963).
4She went through an audition in London in order to get the rights to play the title part in the Rice-Webber musical Evita even though she was the number one box office star in Greece and had acting experience of twenty-five years.
5Her 1980 movie Poniro thilyko... katergara gynaika! (1980) (A cunning woman) that was to mark her comeback at the silver screen after a seven year absence was based on the W. Somerset Maugham play Theatre, a theatrical hit for her in 1973.
6Her last movie Kataskopos Nelli (1981) was a strange mixture of two of her biggest theatrical hits Cabaret and Evita. Shooting originally begun in 1979 and was to be called The Girl At The Cabaret but due to copyright problems (she was not granted permission to use the original songs of the musical) the movie was shelved. Shooting was resumed in 1980 with a different storyline and new songs and the movie was released in 1981.
7Her 1969 movie I neraida kai to palikari (1969) (The fairy and the lad) is in reality a comic version of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
8Her 1973 movie I Maria tis siopis (1973) (Maria of silence) is in reality a remake of the 1948 Jean Negulesco film Johnny Belinda (1948). The part of Belinda (Maria in the Greek version), the deaf mute rape victim had been played by Jane Wyman.
9When asked which international actress she admired Aliki described English actress Maggie Smith as "a gifted actress and a rare talent".
10She was planning to stage Sunset Boulevard and play fading star Norma Desmond. It would have been her second portrayal of an aging actress after Alexandra De Lago in Tennessee Williams' Sweet Bird of Youth.
11Laurence Olivier called her portrayal of Eva Perón in the Rice-Webber musical Evita, in 1981, as "the best Evita I have ever seen.".
12A doll and a pastry was named after her, and she usually starred in commercials in the beginning and during her career, for beers or car-help companies.
13She won the first female performance prize back in the 1960 for the film Madalena (1960), directed by Dinos Dimopoulos, in the first Thessaloniki Film Festival, which now is international.
14The last year of her life she starred in a commercial theatrical hit, named 'The sound of music', disregarding all of these people that thought that she was old for the basic role.
15She starred in Lysistrata and Antigone in the ancient theatre of Epidaurus, both productions were massive commercial successes, but created great controversies.
16Her salary for each film was 1.000.000 drachmas and share of future profits of her films, when the basic salary in Greece per month was 2.000 to 5.000 drachmas.
17She left Filopoimin Finos for Karagiannis-Karatzopoulos films in the late 60s, she produced 3 films there, all commercial successes (but critical failures). When she returned to Finos Films, the producers increased her salary.
18Her first theatre performance as a star, was a George Bernard Shaw play, called Anthony and Cleopatra, but it was a commercial disaster, although a critical victory for the star.
19Her father died during World War 2, defending his country against the German invasion, and she has two brothers, film director Takis Vougiouklakis, and architect Antonis Vougiouklakis.

#Quote
1The man in my life is me!
2"Yes, I am very scared of death and loneliness. I am scared of death because I love life too much, because it's impossible for me to accept the concept of the inevitable ending. I am scared of loneliness in the sense of the ultimate isolation." (1994)
3"Sometimes I get enormously scared and see everything pitch-black. But then I turn and look at the sun and I shout out loud: I'm with you. C'mon,let's start all over again." (1995)
4"If I die tomorrow the exact same thing that has happened to Marilyn Monroe in the U.S. will happen to me too: for as long as she was alive and well people looked down upon her and considered her some sort of an inferior "product". The moment she died, scenes from her movies were spliced together and everybody said "look, what an amazing phaenomenon, what a great actress she was." (1976)
5"Glory! What is glory really? It's just stress and nothing more. The proof is Garbo, Monroe and many others who just couldn't deal with it. Hayworth had become an alcoholic, Bardot has locked herself in a house. What kind of glory is this anyway?" (1982)
