At long last, Sophia Loren can say, "Arrivederci!" to a legal dispute with Italian tax authorities that began 39 years ago.
Italy's Supreme Court has finally cleared Loren of tax evasion charges that began with her 1974 tax return and landed her in a low-security women's prison for 17 days in 1982.

It`s shocking to remember just how many big names in acting are starring in the Rob Marshall movie-musical, Nine. In fact, I had forgotten that Judi Dench, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Fergie, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and the incomparable Sophia Loren all appear in the splashy, reimagining of Fellini`s 8 1/2. While the film stars Daniel Day Lewis in the main role of Guido, it`s easy to get distracted by the gorgeous cast of ladies, all of whom lent their aesthetic talents to this lush photoshoot and interview for Vogue. The leading ladies had nothing but good... Read More

Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.
[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?
