Kinski met the audience in Cluj on Sunday night and during the questions session she made a stunning statement, advising young actresses to expose their nudity, if they feel it’s the right thing to do.

“I was only 19 years old when I posed naked, I was a decision I took all by myself and which subsequently proved to be a good decision for me. But, only the person in question can decide if she can tread this step or not. Maybe all of us have these moments in our life, when we have to take an important decision, each person does whatever he/she feels like,” the famous actress said.
