Welcome Yulia Zhiveynova-Ferrara !!!
1.- Yulia, you were born in Russia, What do you like about your hometown in Russia? What are your hobbies? What makes you laugh a lot or does it give you a lot of joy?
Thank you for the kind question.I have not been in Russia for a long time, 10 years, in connection with the current circumstances. I was born in Moscow, and I hardly ever thought that I would have to leave Russia, that I would be a man of the world. My childhood was in the 90s and they were not easy, going abroad was something outlandish for us.And I couldn’t even imagine that I would be acting in films all over the world, or working as a model from China to Europe.
I studied at an ordinary school, my parents dad was an architect, and mom is a professor at the university.We were a very ordinary family, my mother took me to different sections, taught me to cook, my father took me hiking and fishing.Our childhood passed without gadgets and phones, which I am very happy about. What happened in my life, the way I went to the cinema, and then became a large-size model, the way I watched the film Roman Canculi, I realized, 1- that I want to become an actress, and 2- in which country to act and live.Now I live in a beautiful country, I have 2 wonderful children,I shoot a lot in , I do a lot of movies, – my many dreams have come true, and God forbid, there will be many more wonderful things in life! I believe in miracles, and I try to do more good, I try to be a person with a capital letter.
2.- Yulia, you are also an Italian citizen. What do you like the most about Italian culture? Are there differences between the culture of Italy and Russia?
Different cultures are difficult. A Russian people will never understand some aspects of Italy, and I think the Italians can say the same about us Russians. Yes, I have been a citizen of 2 countries for a long time, but what I am probably proud of is that Russians are very hardy and optimistic! About Russians, Margaret Thatcher correctly said, “If you spit at the Russians, they will be wiped out, but if the Russians spit at you, you will drown”! Russians won the Second World War and it will not be forgotten – the Russians will fight to the end, using the strength of spirit, faith and ingenuity! You can’t take that away from us. I am impressed with Italians that they take care of themselves, take care of themselves, take their time, but it sometimes annoys us who are used to a different rhythm of life. And here we have to put up with!
3.- Yulia, well known actress and model How did you get your first steps as a model and the world of entertainment as an actress?
This is a coincidence – and these are not pretentious words. As I have already said, I grew up in an ordinary family and I did not have any blat. One day I decided to earn some money selling newspapers. An assistant director stopped me on the street and offered to come to the shooting.
At first I acted in extras, I was interested in watching and learning how to make a movie. Then someone noticed, someone was told, they called me, gave me one small role, then another one, and so it went. And as for working as a model, I have always been quite large and tall, but I am well built, everything fits me well, any clothes, plus I am responsible and not capricious, so they began to invite me to other countries as a model.
Once in Russia, for one clothing company, I showed 367 dresses, sweatshirts and skirts in 1 day! And at the same time with a smile on my face, although I remember that I didn’t feel my legs! Once in China, I flew from night to night, due to the time difference, and at 5 am Chinese time I was already in makeup with a cup of fragrant Chinese tea. Our cooperation with China dragged on for 10 years, and I fell in love with China, culture, language, traditions of this amazing country with all my heart.
4.- Yulia, do you consider that an artist, an actress must be 360, that is, play any role
Absolutely. Give it your all! And to do your job well, you need to love the work you do! I’m already over 40 and it’s important for me to play a good role, and it’s important when they stop me on the street and say that I played great, and not how beautiful I am. I sincerely love my work, and I try to get used to each new character, to live my role 100%! When I have doubts, or something does not work out, I feel free to call my close friend, a famous actress with whom we have been friends for 20 years and ask for advice.
5.- Yulia, do you think that an artist, an actress should be 360, that is, play any role? What platform do you like the most, cinema, TV, theater?
To be honest, I really like movies. I have worked in the theater, and I will be happy to work in the Italian theater, too, when invited. But, I feel really happy in the movies. I am happy in my profession
6.- What feeling do you have achieving your dreams, your passions?
My dream is to buy a house with a garden. and to have a big fireplace in the kitchen, and a grand piano in the hotel. So that everything works out for my children, so that my loved ones are healthy. As for hobbies, I paint landscapes and portraits, I really like to paint with oil paints. I like to read. I am, as they say, old-fashioned. Ordinary things make me happy. I know how to be content with little and thank God for every day I have lived
7.- What do you think is the distinctive, unique stamp of Yulia in each activity carried out as a person,artist and model?
Very good question, thank you. What distinguishes me is that I believed in myself, began to think more about myself. Because I realized that if I am happy and healthy, then everything will be fine with my loved ones. And then, me. as I have already said, I try to remain human.
8.- Whats is the main virtue that any woman must have to be a model?
When you decide to become a model, it is very important to understand that you need to show clothes on yourself and not yourself in clothes. And, of course, charisma and a twinkle in his eyes. You need to work hard and approach any show with responsibility, whether you like it or not
9.- Are you aware of being an influential woman for girls who want to be artists or models? How important is it to you to be an idol for many girls and teenagers?
Very often people are driven by vanity, to become famous as soon as possible, to earn money for a beautiful life. And this is fundamentally wrong. I want to leave a mark in this profession, I am a film actress, and I approach every new film with full responsibility. My profession is different in some ways, I am shown on TV, I give interviews, I communicate with the stars, but for me all this is part of my public profession. I will never sit in front of the TV to watch myself on TV, and I will never walk around with my nose in the air.That’s what I’m like.No. If they stop me when they find out, then I will calmly talk, take a picture, smile.It’s not difficult for me
10.- What was your feeling the first time you modeled in front of a video camera?
It wouldn’t be fair to say that I’m not worried in front of the cameras, it’s just that now I’m confident in myself and I understand that I can play almost anything and it helps a lot.
Sometimes I feel more shy when they stop me and ask me to take a picture or say nice words. I am not used to it yet and it is, of course, very pleasant to me when I am recognized, I will not hide it
11.- What do you think about the power of social media today?
Now there is Instagram and Tik tok, and you can become a star of the same tick tock by posting all sorts of crap. It’s a shame that our children grow up on one-day ideals. The power of the Internet is huge now, and in order to become popular, you need to promote yourself, which I regret the time.
And then, for example, I will never show which car I drive or which brand bag I walk with. because I know that there are a lot of poor people in the world, and if you choose to buy yourself another piece of clothing, or help someone who is more difficult now, I will choose the latter. I help when I have the opportunity, and for many years I have been a donor for a children’s hospital. I have a rare blood type, and if possible, I try to give it.
12.- How do you like to interact with your followers on social media? Whats your favorite social media?
I have a lot of followers on Instagram, and if possible, I answer if they write something. But I won’t hang on Instagram or Facebook for hours myself, especially in tik tok, I’d rather play with the children, do lessons with them, paint a picture or read, well, bake a cake and we’ll have tea with the children. I repeat, I am not fashionable, but old-fashioned, but everything suits me.
13.- What would you advise young people who have talent but do not dare to take the next step? What would you advise parents who do not support their children’s talents?
I know for sure that it is necessary to listen to children, they are also people, even if they are small. And if the child told you his secret, and even if this secret shocked you, you need to understand. Time will put everything in its place. I force my children to study music, karate, reading, studying, but I know for sure by this example, when they grow up, they thank me, as I thank my mother for an excellent education, I realized this when I became an adult. I can do a lot, and this is a credit to my mom.
My children sometimes grumble, saying that the load is heavy, but I know that it mobilizes, and they will not have time for stupidity. Of course, they will try to smoke and maybe someday they will drink too much, we have all been through this. But if they have a purpose in life, then everything will be fine
14.- What important lessons have you learned from the world of fashion?
Fashion has taught me confidence in front of the public. I know that if I walk down the runway beautiful, smiling and confident, the audience will appreciate it. I also learned not to compete – everyone has their own. Today I am the queen of the catwalk, tomorrow someone else and so it should be. It is ok. But I know one thing for sure, I am a full woman, but I have helped a lot of girls to believe in themselves by my example.
15.- Yulia, being a model and actress for you has been easy? Were there obstacles? How did you overcome obstacles?
Being an actress or a model is the same as in any other profession. Being one of the best or the best in your profession is what’s important. Don’t mess around and do your job well
16.- Worldwide, women have acquired a greater role even though there are societies where they are still abused. What is your opinion of the role of women in the future in these societies?
Yes, there are a lot of temptations in my profession, and there are often obscene offers, well, it already depends on you, or to prove that you are an actress with a capital letter, and not the litter of some director, and you will make your way with your talent. And then, believe me, if the director is a professional, he will take an actress who really suits him for the role, and it will not depend on whether she slept with him or not.
17.- Yulia, what is your motivation and what do you feel grateful for every day?
This year turned out to be very happy for me, a lot of films, the Cannes Film Festival, love, dreams come true. I thank God for every day I have lived.Full stream ahead
18.- Yulia Do you like to travel? What countries do you know? What other countries would you like to know and which places do you recommend to visit from Russia and Italy?
I traveled a lot for work and just like that. I think it’s better to see the world than to put money in the bank. And I teach my children to do the same. I’ve been to South America, too, I didn’t get to Peru, but my best friend in Italy is from Peru, and I know a lot about your wonderful country.
I remember Shanghai – it’s beautiful, I also liked London and Prague, but the most beautiful city on earth is Rome, every street of it is beautiful. And in Russia, it’s Moscow, the city where I was born and grew up, a city with an extraordinary history. I love my homeland very much
