 Often called the Italian "Marilyn Monroe"

Beauty is how you feel inside,
and it reflects in your eyes.
It is not something physical.
Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren was born as Sofia Scicolone at the
Clinica Regina Margherita in Rome, Italy, on September 20, 1934
Prior to using her current stage name, she was credited as
"Sofia Lazzaro" because people joked her beauty could
raise Lazzarus from the dead.

In 1991 Sophia received an Honorary Academy Award for
her body of work, and was declared "one of world cinema's greatest treasures."
Godmother of Drew Barrymore.

Suffered from stage fright and, therefore, never appeared in a theatrical production.

  1. What a great blend of yesterday and today! Bravo! I like the feel of a throwback to an era while embracing the thoughts of today. Great stuff.
    My favorite Sophia Loren quote is, "Everything you see I owe to spaghetti".
