Despite her great success, Yvonne Catterfeld seems to have remained down to earth. This is also evidenced by various quotes that the actress and singer gave in the course of her career.
Her most famous quote is: “Pizza, burgers and steaks, that’s my world.” and proves that she doesn’t submit to starvation dictates in order to survive on the red carpets.
She also wishes for honesty, especially as a public figure: “Being praised is boring. That’s why I appreciate having critical people as friends.”
Yvonne Catterfeld is committed to helping children and young people with bulimia and anorexia at the Berlin Charité and regularly visits them in the hospital. In this way she would like to contribute to a greater awareness of this mental illness.
