    At obscenity hearings for 'I Am Curious (Yellow),' John Simon argued that the sex scenes were not erotic, since she and co-star Borje Ahlstedt were 'not particularly attractive.'
    Similarly, Roger Ebert called her 'a pudgy girl with an unpleasant laugh' and Stanley Kauffmann described her as 'porky and stolid.'
    She died one day after another actress who became famous by appearing nude in a European arthouse film, Maria Schneider from 'Last Tango in Paris.'
    John Simon also said 'her liveliness is almost as good as loveliness.'
    She received death threats over 'I Am Curious (Yellow).'
    She won the Guldbagge Award (Swedish equivalent of the Oscar) for best actress for her performance in the two 'I Am Curious' films.
    She proved to filmgoers she could act with her clothes on when she appeared in Ingmar Bergman's 'Autumn Sonata.'
