      Carlo Ponti (17 September 1957 - 1962) (annulled)

      Trivia
      As a child, she also had the nickname, "Toothpick".

      Filed a lawsuit against 76 websites for using "fraudulent photographs" of her on adult sites (17 September 1999).

      Mother of Carlo Ponti Jr. (b. 1969) and Edoardo Ponti (b. 1973). Father is Carlo Ponti.

      She may have been the voluptuous sex goddess as an adult, but until the age of 14, she was a skinny child and considered an ugly duckling, nicknamed 'The Stick'.

      Chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the world (1991).

      She had her marriage annulled to save Carlo Ponti from bigamy charges in Italy.

      She served 18 days in prison in Italy in 1982 for tax evasion.

      Born at 2:10pm-CET

      Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#25) (1995).

      Derives great pleasure from rolling her bare feet over a wooden rolling pin while watching TV.

      She didn't get along with Marlon Brando during the shooting of A Countess from Hong Kong (1967), especially after the day they were doing a love scene and he commented, "Did you know you have hairs up your nostrils?".

      She performed two duets with Peter Sellers which were major hits in the UK pop chart. 'Goodness Gracious Me' was released in 1960 and reached four and 'Bangers and Mash' made it to the top 20 in 1961.

      Carlo Ponti obtained a Mexican divorce from his first wife and married Sophia by proxy, while she was in Hollywood, filming Houseboat (1958) - and dating co-star Cary Grant (17 September 1957).

      While filming Boy on a Dolphin (1957), Sophia was required to walk in a trench in order to give audiences the impression that her diminutive co-star, Alan Ladd, was taller than she.

      Her sister Maria Scicolone (born Anna Maria Scicolone) was married to dictator Benito Mussolini's son, Romano Mussolini.

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

      Measurements: 38C-24-38 (self-described - 1955, and from Edith Head- 1957), 36D-24-37 3/4 (at age 50 - 1985) (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)

      Had two miscarriages prior to her first-born son Carlo Ponti Jr. Because of these complications, she had to have complete bed rest throughout her first and second successful pregnancies.

      Her mother won an all-Italy Greta Garbo lookalike contest run by MGM in 1932; but, being only 17 years old, her mother wouldn't allow her to pursue her Hollywood dream. Soon after, she became pregnant with Sofia.

      Her adopted surname is a slight variation of "Toren" after the Swedish actress Märta Torén.

      Her mother named her after her paternal grandmother, so when Sofia's father abandoned her, her maternal grandmother began calling her 'Lella'.

      Won a Grammy award in 2004 for Best Spoken Word Album for Children for her work in "Prokofiev: Peter and the Wolf/Beintus" along with former US President Bill Clinton and former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev.

      Was named #21 Actress, The American Film Institutes 50 Greatest Screen Legends

      Often called the "Italian Marilyn Monroe".

      At times, male actors have been hesitant to appear with her, due to the fact that she stands nearly 5' 9" and wears towering heels and tall hair that can make her look over 6 feet tall.

      Her "Best Actress" Academy Award was the first Oscar ever given for a performance in a "foreign-language" film.

      Received an honorary citizenship in her hometown of Pozzuoli, Italy, on June 22, 2005 (she gave up her Italian citizenship and became a French citizen years ago because of legal and tax problems she and her husband incurred in Italy).

      Cited as one of Drew Barrymore's early role models. Loren was a close friend of Drew's godmother, Anna Strasberg (wife of famed acting coach Lee Strasberg.) Anna would bring young Drew - from age 8 until she was 12-to Sophia's ranch outside Los Angeles where Drew would spend summers with Loren's two sons. (Jane magazine interview March 2007).

      Being a fan of soccer club S.S.C. Napoli, she told the daily "Gazzetta dello Sport", when the team was just third in Serie B, that she would do a striptease if they achieved promotion to Serie A for the next season. When they managed to achieve promotion, she explained that she had made just a joke (June 2007).

      Personal Quotes
      Sex appeal is 50% what you've got and 50% what people think you've got.

      Mistakes are a part of the dues one pays for a full life.

      The two big advantages I had at birth were to have been born wise and to have been born in poverty.

      Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go so much further than people with vastly superior talent.

      [on adultery] It's a game I never play.

      [explaining why she stopped doing nude scenes] When Sophia Loren is naked, that is a lot of nakedness.

      Cooking is an act of love, a gift, a way of sharing with others the little secrets -- "piccoli segreti" -- that are simmering on the burners.

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

      A mother has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.

      Many people think they want things, but they don't really have the strength, the discipline. They are weak. I believe that you get what you want if you want it badly enough.

      [on Tyrone Power] Tyrone Power was my ideal man.

      [on Marcello Mastroianni] Marcello is a man who thinks like a man, talks like a man -- is a man! He has so much magnetism, he brings out the very soul in a woman.

      [on Gregory Peck] One of the most charming men I've ever met.

      [on Cary Grant] I learned many things working with Cary Grant. He has such tremendous concentration. Many actors do not have the courage to stand still. Cary Grant knows how to concentrate, how to look directly at you, but always with great relaxation.

      [on Gina Lollobrigida] Gina's personality is limited. She is good playing a peasant but is incapable of playing a lady. That said, I don't think she's positively mad about me. Because I'm bigger than she? It's possible. Who knows?

      Mini Biography
      She is the illegitimate child of Romilda Villani and Riccardo Scicolone. Sophia grew up in the slums of Pozzuoli, just outside Naples. After insignificant parts in Luci del varietà (1950) and Quo Vadis (1951), she met movie-director Carlo Ponti, some 22 years her senior, whom she later married. Perhaps he was the father figure she never experienced as a child. In 1961, she received an Academy Award for La ciociara (1960) ("Two Women"). This beautiful lady became one of the major sex symbol of the sixties, competing with Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Fonda. She was a very close friend of Cary Grant.

      She gained wider respect with her later movies like The Cassandra Crossing (1976), Una giornata particolare (1977) and Prêt-à-Porter (1994). A lot of her movies were produced by her husband. In many of her movies, she played together with Marcello Mastroianni.

    • Re: Pals Of The Saddle- Sophia Loren

      The beautiful Oscar winning Sophia Loren
      made only one film with Duke,

      Legend Of The Lost(1957)



      She played alongside Duke in the part of Dita.
      Here is my part of my post from the movie thread,
      which just about sums it up.


      Sophia whilst making Legend Of The Lost

      The interaction between the co-stars, didn't work, mainly
      because, the difference in accents, tended to stilt the flow of dialogue.
      Duke was OK, but did seem oddly our of place.
      Sophie Loren, who was supposed to add, box office return, sex appeal,
      according to Hathaway,
      She was a one-dimensional actress.It's just the beauty.She has no depth.Never did, never will have.

      Well there was very little chemistry, between them and although she liked Duke, he disliked, her, mainly because of his moralistic issue, of her having an affair,
      with a married man, namely her co-star, Rossano Brazzi.
      Loren said of Duke,
      Big, authoritative, gruff, but polite, and a pro, through and through.....


      However there is no doubt Sophia was to shine in many films,
      bagging an Oscar on the way.
      The Fall of the Roman Empire
      El Cid
      The Pride and the Passion
      among some of her great movies
      Best Wishes

    • Re: Pals Of The Saddle- Sophia Loren

      Thanks Keith to say about Sophia Loren,
      I didn't see the film "Legend Of The Lost" with the Duke yet,
      only "Matrimonio all'italiana" ,"Ieri Oggi e Domani", "Filumena Marturano" and "La Ciociara" .
