We have to try very hard
to keep our marriage going

"I know I have done lots of films I shouldn't have made. But from now on, I hope I only will be offered parts with depth and meaning", Ann-Margret, 34, says.

She has gotten her revenge. In the film "Tommy", which opened in Sweden last summer, she dominates the screen, and heracting shows her ability to perform, both musically and dramatically.

Critics started taking her seriously, when Mike Nichols casted her in "Carnal Knowledge". He saw qualities in the former sex kitten no one else had seen.

"All personal attacks on me has created an inner blockage", she said recently. "I think the worst period was around 1966, but I don't quite recall what it was about, just that I was really hurt. Critics just didn't like my acting, they didn't like me as a person".

Ann-Margret is used to handling both the press and fans. She's very charming and well balanced. You could see this recently at the Cannes Film Festival, where she awarded prizes to all winners, and she did it very well.

Ann-Margret today, is nothing like the former "Animal". It's a miracle she's still so attractive. Three years ago she was in a serious accident, when she fell from a high stage in Lake Tahoe, face first. Badly hurt, doctors did a fantastic job, restoring her face.

"My left side is still stiff, and I can't feel anything in that part of my face. They rebuilt my face from the inside".

"The older I get and the longer I work in this business, the more important I understand it is to have a sense of humor. I wouldn't have managed so long, if I wouldn't have been able to laugh at certain things. Some people will never like me, whatever I do."

"Roger and I have been married for 8 years, and we really have to work hard to make it work. Luckily we can laugh together".

At a big charity gala for children in Stockholm recently, she was meant to have participated, but a previous engagement stopped it. She was very disappointed, but she got some comfort when she was selected "Best Female Star of 1975" in Las Vegas. Among previous winners are Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand. It doesn't get any better, and economically, when she signs her new Vegas contract, she will now get around $250,000. Per week!
