    "A woman's dress should be like a barbed wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view."

    "There IS a Fountain of Youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."


    Sophia Loren (born 1934) is an Italian born[1] actress (although now a French citizen, living in Geneva), known for both her sultry looks (keeping her figure even now), and dramatic talent. She was the first Academy Award winner for best actress in a foreign language role. She was also very busy, acting in loads of films from the 50s though 70s, and only slowing down in the 80s (even turning down the role of Alexis Carrington in Dynasty) to raise her kids and focus on other work (both entrepreneurial and humanitarian).

    She has long been aware of her sexy image, having many quotes about it (including one she insisted she didn't actually say), and spoofing that image in some of her later roles. In 2007, she posed for a calender in nothing but a swimsuit, and was apparently asked she didn't pose nude. She said that "When Sophia Loren is naked, that is a lot of nakedness".
