“Do not follow fashion, but feel it”, Sophia Loren told once. Alongside two other hotties, Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe, she was named as the most beautiful actress in the world. But unlike her stellar colleagues, she kept her beauty and charm till her golden age.
Sophia Loren is the diamond, which was covered with a sick layer of dust. Her parents had never been married. Sophia’s mother served as a pianist in the nearest pub and her godlike daughter served there as a waitress.
When Sophia was 14, she put on a dress, made of curtain, and moved to Rome. No wonder, the girl won the beauty pageant in Rome. Her young smooth olive skin, the guitar-like body and long pitch black hair caught an eye of TV mogul Carlo Ponti.
Carlo was 38, when he met an unbelievably slim girl Sophia, who was 16 at that time. She was nicknamed by her classmates as “Little Stick” for her leanness. But Ponti looked in her big green eyes and felt, the girl had that something, which turned an ordinary person into a star.
With Ponti’s support Sophia Loren created that iconic female image, which is popular till now. She starred in complicated serious movies, which were valued high by critics. Sophia Loren’s best screen works are “Two Women”, “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”, “Sunflower” and many others.
