Sophia Loren turns 80

Sophia Loren turns 80
Italy’s most celebrated screen diva, Sophia Loren turns 80 this week, celebrating with a tell-all book of memoirs.

To mark her 80th birthday, Sophia Loren is releasing a book of memoirs. Sprawled over 300-page, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – My Life, dives into the actress’s “trunk of memories” to fish out old pictures, letters and notes from the likes of Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn and Richard Burton, not to mention Italian soul mate Marcello Mastroianni.

The result includes plenty of juicy tales, such as how she stopped Marlon Brando’s physical advances with a fulminating glare and how Grant suggested they should pray to make the right decision when they were falling in love on a film set.

Happy birthday Sophia!
