Jasmin German Magazine - Interview 1969:
The caption reads: Sharon Tate: "Thus to live on as before."
"My Luck, My Fear, My Hope"
JASMIN spoke with Hollywood Star Sharon Tate. This interview took place a few weeks ago. Today - after the murder of Sharon Tate in the home she shared with her husband Roman Polanski - is this amazing conversation of actuality.
Jasmin: What is your biggest fortune?
ST: The child I am expectiing. But Roman and I, we did not plan this child --it was just a fortunate coincidence.
But this is my life: Only this moment counts, only this day. I have never worried about my future.
Jasmin: What are you scared of?
ST: Being all alone, to have nobody who loves me, nobody who I can love--thats my fear. Loneliness drives
people to desperation and they realize that they have no reason to live. Thank God I was never in such a
situation but I'm still young yet. But for elderly people it must be terrible seeing their friends dying-- one
after another. The loneliness of age deeply depresses me.
Jasmin: What is your biggest hope?
ST: Certainly not my career, I just don't have the ambition. I hope my child will be the most beautiful and
the healthiest child in the world. And it shall be happy--a happy person who can see, understand and enjoy
the beautiful things in life. This is also the hope I have for my own life: just carry on living like I do now--perfectly happy ... or is this maybe asking a bit too much?
