On her less than stellar career after such a promising start, Olivia Hussey told The Daily Telegraph (March 4, 2002): "You have to understand that I grew up with the whole world watching. One moment, I was just a girl acting in a movie, and then I was internationally famous, touring the world and getting mobbed, giving endless interviews. By the time all the publicity work was done, I was exhausted. I couldn't wait to get out of the spotlight.

"So I went home and hibernated for more than a year. I was a recluse. I didn't go anywhere. I didn't do much of anything but sit at home."

"I was so impressed by the Martins. They had stacks of photos showing all their good times with friends, and you would look at the pictures and suddenly notice that Marilyn Monroe or some other incredible star was standing in the background. When we went to Las Vegas and saw my father-in-law perform, I couldn't believe that I was part of this new circle that seemed bigger than life. Everyone loved Dean Martin, and he seemed to be having such a wonderful time." --Hussey on her first marriage to Dean Paul Martin, quoted in The Daily Telegraph, March 4, 2002.
