Federico Fellini was a huge admirer of her work and she herself said about her acting career that she wanted to play herself, the independent fighter and not sensational parts or to portray desirable women. I quote her further on in the same matter, saying "I never won an Oscar... and the Oscars never won Irene Papas".

Irene Papa, actress. Early on she was talked into going to Hollywood for work. There, she was marketed as a "Greek starlet" and had to give typical cheesecake interviews. The statuesque Athena-looking woman would instead end up going into musings (in that deep voice of hers) on Plato's concept of the soul vs  the Epicurean idea of the nature of man. One can only imagine the perplexed reactions.
