Responding to a question by Mayor Christian Zahler how she had landed the role of the seductive pearl diver, Andress said it had been luck and pure chance.
The film's producers had been looking for a new somewhat sporty type of woman, and she had accepted the part because the script had been so simple.
The only thing she had to do was "run, run, run", she said.
Andress left a ceramic handprint, which is expected to be displayed in her former school.
