At 72 Vivacious Sophia Loren is still a Beautiful Woman

One Very Beautiful and Vivacious Lady

 

Born in Rome Italy on 20th September 1934. She married Carlo Ponti the movie director 20 odd years older than her. She became the most sought after voluptuous sex symbol of the sixties. Competing with Bridget Bardot, and Marilyn Monroe for that top honor.

At the age of seventy-two, she appeared in the 2007 edition of the famous Pirelli calendar, which made her the oldest model in its history. She is still a very beautiful woman, still able to turn the eye of most men.

She performed in the following films:

A breath of Scandal, Heller in Pink Tights in 1960, The Millionairess in 1961, Two women in 1961, The Cassandra Crossing in 1977, Blood Feud in 1980, Sophia Loren: Her own Story in 1980, Grumpier Old Men in 1995, Between Strangers in 2002 and Peperoni Ripienj e Pesci in Faccia in 2004.

Eileen, these pics are great as well. She has so much grace, just her face speaks volumes. She doesn't need any dialogues.

In addition to having had a fascinating career in movie acting Sophia Loren also exudes a unique aura of personality, her regal posture and charming poise combined with total self confidence makes Sophia Loren one in a million. The fact that Miss Loren never did nudity scenes also adds to Her mystique. Sophia Loren must go down in history as 'one of the Greats!

Thanks limpet, you have hit the nail on the head, spot on. She was definitely an icon for women. Morels have gone down the drain these days.No pride anymore that's for sure.

Visualise this! Sophia in Cannes for a film festival.

Italian 'bombshell' Sophia Loren at 79 is the centre of attention with a grand performance for the 'paps'. Such a Diva i hope She lives forever.

There is far more that i can add on the topic such as things i have accumulated along the journey. I'll never forget when She turned 30 and there was a massive expose in print to celebrate the event. Also it is possible to write to a number of celebrities through an agent in Zurich but i don't think i'll risk it yet.

There was a news report about Sophia Loren having health issues but cannot retrieve anything about that 'on screen'. Got to thinking though

just how many septenagerians look this good. I can name probably a lot of WOMEN in their 60 s still attractive. Hope to see more of Sophie in due course.

How does She do it? La Divina Herself admits to a strict health regime and diet with plenty of rest. The fact that She is still working after more than sixty years in the industry attests to Her vivaciousness.

In addition to such a vivacious 'personna' Sophia Loren has a higher than average intellect as asserted by her many famous quotes. Such as 'A woman's dress should be thought of as barbed wire, serving a purpose without obstructing the view.' An insight into her feminine mystique no doubt!

Well known that Sophia Loren did not act in nude scenes but i recall going back decades now of a publicty still of an extremely young Sophia Loren posing bare chested. May have been from a private collection not for publication. In many a role she was not averse to a bit of cleavage visible though!

Latest 'paparazzi' images of Sophia Loren celebrating her 82nd, show an exquisitivly groomed lady, no make up at all, minimal jewellery and a fashionable outfit. She does not look a day over 60. A following of adoring males vying for her affection are 'in tow' behind her.

Well into her 80's now. I wonder if she can still put a man in a judo hold and throw him over her shoulder as she did as Epifania in the 1960 production of The millionairess.

More than likely Sophia Loren as Epifania would have used juijitsu on Peter Sellers in the 1960 production of The Millionairess as was based on the 1936 play by G.B.Shaw of the same name. Juijitsu at the time was the most widely used form of women's self defence at the time.
