December 19 marks the 71st year of the theater and film actress Anastasia Vertinskaya.
In 1960-1970s, she was one of the most popular and beautiful Actresses of Soviet. After a resounding success in theater and film Vertinskaya suddenly disappeared from the screens. Today she has no regrets about leaving acting because she had a good reason.
Parents, Anastasia was a famous singer, composer and poet Alexander Vertinsky and actress Lydia Tsirgvava, who was younger than her husband of 34 years. My father tried to give his daughters Marianna and Anastasia – round education. Anastasia dreamed of becoming a ballerina, but the ballet school she was not accepted because of the excess weight.
On the set she first came in 15 years and his first role brought her incredible success – it was Assol in “Scarlet sails”, which only in the first year of hire was viewed 23 million viewers. A year later, she got the lead role in the film “the amphibian Man”, and this painting became the leader of hire in 1962 in the role of a gutiere Anastasia Vertinskaya remembered and loved by millions of Soviet people, although the actress later called this work banal and ridiculous. After the role of Ophelia in “hamlet” began to call her “Vivian Leigh the Soviet screen”.
All-Union popularity of the girl is not happy, and scared. Its constantly harassed by strangers on the streets all the time someone came for an autograph, young people too persistently sought its location, but she did not understand what deserved such attention, because she did not consider herself a real actress.
Vertinskaya recalls with horror the times: “If I rode the train from Moscow to Leningrad in a compartment, then to me, was Packed full car wanted to join me. The queue was constantly signing autographs – wrote on the money on hand… as One fan threw something in my eyes a handful of sand”. Since then, she has a fear of crowds, which grew into a real phobia. Still Vertinskaya avoids crowded society and secular parties.
Professional she was able to call just after he graduated from the Shchukin school, starred in dozens of movies, played in many performances. To work Vertinskaya treated very seriously and never afraid of difficulties during underwater filming in the “Man-amphibian,” she refused to understudy and she dived without scuba gear and swam in the icy water, “the Master and Margarita” was filmed on top of the ladder of a fire truck, at a speed of 120 km per hour.
Anastasiya Vertinskaya was married once, and his only husband calls Nikita Mikhalkov, although it is associated romantic relationship with other famous artists: after breaking up with Mikhalkov she had an affair with Alexander Gradsky, for 20 years, she remained with Oleg Efremov, although they never got married. The main men in my life Vertinskaya calls the father, the son, Stepan Mikhalkov, and does not regret that did not take any of the numerous offers of marriage: “Marriage is not my thing, says the actress. Good thing I soon realized this and avoided many mistakes.”
In 1991, Vertinskaya, he established and headed the Charity Fund of Russian actors, which helps needy veterans of the theatre and cinema. Lot of time actress dedicates to the care of father’s legacy: released CDs with his songs, publishes memoirs and poems, deals with the restoration of the unknown records of Alexander Vertinsky. Son she helped lead the restaurant business: she is an excellent cook, so often suggested ideas for restaurant menus. In 2014, in response to the crisis restaurants “Indian” and “modern art” was closed, and Anastasia took the reissue of memories of his mother.
Standing offers from film Directors in recent years have been reported, and to play the mother of the killer, the actress will never agree – doesn’t want to lower the bar. Today Vertinskaya has no regrets about the fact that retired from films, she is very comfortable in a circle of friends. “I concentrated on my family and father’s legacy,” she says. The actress does not consider themselves to the stars of show business and prefers to be called by the representative of the Russian intelligentsia.
