She is widely considered to be the most popular Italian actress of her time and is also famous for being a major international # sex symbol.Loren was born Sofia Villani Scicolone at the Clinica Regina Margherita in Romeon September 20, 1934, to Riccardo Scicolone and Romilda Villani. Riccardo refused to marry Romilda, leaving her, a piano teacher and aspiring actress, without support. Romilda, Sofia and sister Maria returned to Pozzuoli, near Naples, to live with Sofia's grandmother in order to survive.During World War II, the harbor and munitions plant in Pozzuoli was a frequent bombing target of the allies. During one raid, as Sofia ran to the shelter, she was struck by shrapnel and wounded in the chin. Subsequently the family moved to Naples and begged distant relatives to take them in.After the war, Sofia and her family returned to Pozzuoli. Grandmother Luisa opened their living room as a pub, selling homemade cherry liquor. Romilda played the piano, Maria sang and the shy Sofia waited tables and washed dishes. The place was very popular with the American GIs stationed nearby.When she was 14 years old, Sofia entered a beauty contest in Naples and, while not winning, was selected as one of the finalists. Later she enrolled in acting class and was selected as an extra in the Mervyn LeRoyf ilm, Quo Vadis, thus launching her career as a motion picture actress. She eventually changed her name to Sophia Loren.Loren first met Carlo Pontiin 1950 during a beauty contest in which he was a judge. Having helped launch Gina Lollobrigida's career, he had Loren do many small parts. Later, while in Atlanta in 1957, he had lawyers obtain a Mexican divorce from his wife Giuliana and a marriage by proxy to Loren. Italy did not recognize divorce at the time, and the Catholic Church denounced their marriage. In 1962 the marriage was annulled. After this he arranged with Giuliana for the three of them move to France, which at that time allowed divorce, and they became French citizens. In 1965 Giuliana Ponti divorced her husband, allowing Ponti to marry Loren in 1966 in a civil wedding in S'vres. Mother of Carlo Ponti Jr. and Edoardo Ponti. Edoardo Ponti married actress Sasha Alexanderin Geneva, Switzerland, they have a daughter Lucia Sofia, born May 12, 2006.By the late 1950s, Loren's star had begun to rise in Hollywood, with films such as 1957's Boy on a Dolphinand The Pride and the Passionin which she co-starred with Cary Grantand Frank Sinatra. Grant, reportedly, fell so deeply in love with Loren that he ardently proposed marriage, despite her obvious loyalty to Carlo Ponti and Grant's own union with the actress and writer Betsy Drake. Loren refused.Loren became an international film star with a five-picture contract with Paramount Pictures. Among her films at this time: Desire Under the Elmswith Anthony Perkins, based upon the Eugene O'Neillplay; Houseboat, a romantic comedy co-starring Cary Grant; and George Cukor's Heller in Pink Tights in which she appeared with blonde hair (a wig) for the first time. Loren demonstrated considerable dramatic skills and attracted respect as a dramatic and comedic actress, especially in Italian projects where she could express herself more freely, although she acquired great proficiency in English.In 1960, Loren's acclaimed performance in Vittorio De Sica's Two Womenearned many awards, including the Cannes,Veniceand BerlinFilm Festivals' best performance prizes. Her performance was also awarded an Academy Award for Best Actress, the first major Academy Award for a non-English-language performance and Latin actress. Initially, the stark, gritty story of a mother and daughter surviving in war-torn Italy was to cast Anna Magnanias Sophia's mother. Negotiations, perhaps due to billing, broke down and the screenplay was rewritten to make Loren the mother; Eleonora Brownportrayed the daughter.Belying the typical portrayal of the beautiful actress as vacuous and emptyheaded, Loren was known for her sharp wit and insight. One of her most frequently-quoted sayings is her quip about her famously-voluptuous figure: "Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti."During the 1960s, Loren was one of the most popular actresses in the world, and she continued to make films in both the U.S. and Europe, acting with leading male stars. In 1964, her career reached its zenith when she received $1 million to act in The Fall of the Roman Empire.Among Loren's best-known films of this period are Samuel Bronston'sepic productionof El Cid(1961)with Charlton Heston, The Millionairess(1960) with Peter Sellers, It Started in NapleswithClark Gable(1960), Vittorio De Sica's triptych Ieri, oggi, domani(1963) with Marcello Mastroianni, Peter Ustinov's Lady L (1965) with Paul Newman, the 1966 classic Arabesquewith Gregory Peck, and Charlie Chaplin's final film,A Countess from Hong Kong(1967) with Marlon Brando.Despite the failure of many of her films to generate sales at the box office, Loren has an impressive roster of credits and work with famous co-stars. Invariably, she has turned in a charming performance and worn some of the most lavish costumes ever created for the movies. Some of her most attractive performances include A Breath of Scandal(1960), Madame Sans-G'ne(1962), Heller in Pink Tights (1960) and More than a Miracle(1967).Loren also recorded well over two dozen songs throughout her career, including a best-selling album of comedic songs with Peter Sellers; reportedly, she had to fend off his romantic advances. It was partly owing to Sellers' infatuation with Loren that he split with his first wife, Anne Howe. Loren has made it clear to numerous biographers that Sellers' affections were reciprocated only platonically. This collaboration was covered in Life and Death of Peter Sellerswhere actressSonia Aquinoportrayed Loren. It is said that the song Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)by Peter Sarstedtwas inspired by Loren.Loren in Kenya while serving as Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations and High Commissioner for Refugees in November 1992Once she became a mother, Loren worked less. She moved into her 40's and 50's with roles in films including the last De Sica movie, The Voyage, with Richard Burtonand Ettore Scola's A Special Daywith Mastroianni.In 1980, Loren portrayed herself, as well as her mother, in a made-for-televisionbiopicadaptation of her autobiography. Actresses, Ritza Brown and Chiara Ferrari played Loren at younger ages. She made headlines in 1982 when she served an 18-day prison sentence in Italy ontax evasioncharges, a fact that didn't damage her career or popularity.In her 60s, Loren became selective about choosing her films and ventured into various areas of business, including cook books, eyewear, jewelry and perfume. She also made well-received appearances in Robert Altman's Ready to Wear(her final film with Mastroianni) and the 1995 comedy Grumpier Old Menplaying a femme fataleopposite Walter Matthauand Jack Lemmon.In 1991, Loren received the Academy Honorary Awardfor her contributions toworld cinemaand was declared "one of the world cinema's treasures." In 1995, she received the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award.In 1993, Loren presented Federico Felliniwith an Academy Honorary Award. In 1998, she presented the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Filmfor Roberto Benigni's Life Is Beautiful.In 2009 she co-presented the category of Best Actressat the 81st Academy Awards. After four years off the big screen, Loren will star in Rob Marshall's film version of Nine, based on the Broadwaymusical. Loren will play the mother of Guido Contini, who's portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis.Loren, at the age of 72, appeared in the 2007 Pirelli Calendarentitled "A Bed and Five Stories" along with Hillary Swank, Penelope Cruz, Naomi Watts, and Lou Doillon.Loren is a huge fan of the footballclub S.S.C. Napoli. In May 2007, when the team was third inSerie B, she told the Gazzetta dello Sportthat she would do a stripteaseif they achieved promotion to Serie Afor the 2007/08 season.
