sophia loren stayed married from the age of 22 to her husband, italian film producer carlo ponti, until his death 50 years later. when asked if she would ever marry again, like a true romantic she replied, “no, never again. it would be impossible to love anyone else”.

    Sophia Loren was a real goddess during our 50s and became even more admired when she gained international success and fame during the 60s. She’s an icon all around the world even today.
    She’s undeniably talented and beautiful.
    However, I think she can never beat Monica Vitti’s charm, beauty and talent. Monica is simply wonderful! I suggest you to watch Michelangelo Antonioni’s gorgeous movies to see her play. (Antonioni is my favourite director, he was a genius to say the least and I think you’ll love his frames; such a wonderful use of space and architecture! And all the feelings he conveys through his work… Meraviglioso! Bri – and everyone, check him out!)
