Ann-Margret is named 'Swedish-American of the Year'!

Ann-Margret, 59, is doing more film parts than ever. And yesterday she received the prize as this year's Sweish-American! "I still wanna be Swedish, but I don't have double citizenship. Maybe someone can arrange it for me" she says laughing.

Ann-Margret did more parts in film and TV during the 90s than any other decade, and she hopes she'll keep busy. "I recently did 'The Last Producer', with Burt Reynolds as both producer and actor" she says.

It's about an ageing movie producer who fights to stay on the scene. Ann-Margret, however, doesn't believe Hollywood is a harder place to grow old in. "Not to me anyway. It has been a natural developement. You enter as a young star and you're the flavour of the month, you can't go wrong. Then follows certain success, and then slowly people start to forget you. That's just the way it is" she says.

Ann-Margret was also recently in Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday".

She won't, however, comment on the rumours that she is about to have one of the starring parts in the upcoming film "Dream", with a script by Reidar Jonsson, directed by Mikael Hylin.

Ann-Margret still feels pain from the motorcycle accident she had in August, while attending a car & motorcycle show in Minnesota. "Simply put, I just hit a rock" she says.

The Eliason Award is presented by the Swedish Consulate in Los Angeles, and the ceremony was led by Johnny Grant. He is the one who is the host when film stars leave their hand and footprints at the Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

During dinner, Swedish pianist Robert Wells entertained and Ann-Margret clapped her hands. "I still feel Swedish. Half my family still lives in Sweden.

She won't, though, say what differencies she sees between Swedes and Americans. ""Oh, God, no, I can't generalize like that. I won't"
