Sophia Loren Finally Explains Why She Gave Jayne Mansfield Such Epic Side-Eye

“She came right for my table. She knew everyone was watching. She sat down. And now, she was barely… Listen. Look at the picture. Where are my eyes? I’m staring at her nipples because I am afraid they are about to come onto my plate. In my face you can see the fear. I’m so frightened that everything in her dress is going to blow—BOOM!—and spill all over the table.”

Surely you’ve seen this infamous photo before, of Sophia Loren giving fellow Hollywood actress and glamazon Jayne Mansfield epic side-eye. While I’m sure many have theorized about all the possible reasons for Sophia to be shading Jayne — did she steal her man? claim the designer gown Sophia wanted to wear? steal her parking space?! — Loren told Entertainment Weekly that the truth is actually pretty ridiculous. She was just keeping her eyes peeled for a massive wardrobe malfunction! Apparently, the photo was taken at a party that Paramount had thrown for Loren and Mansfield, who passed away in 1967, was the last to show up. “For me, that was when it got amazing,” she told EW. Indeed. [Entertainment Weekly]

5 Ways To Get Gorgeous With Olive Oil

I used to work with this super elegant, gorgeous, older woman stylist who happened to be Italian, and during the wee hours of one particularly long shoot, I asked her what was the secret to her native countrywomens’ longevity. She didn’t hesitate: “Olive oil,” she replied. One of the greatest beauty icons of all time, Sophia Loren, concurs. She attributes her stunning 75-year-old good looks to “a love of life, spaghetti, and the odd bath in virgin olive oil.” [Celebrity Health & Fitness]

Ingesting the stuff is one thing–it’s loaded with healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. But there are plenty of more superficial benefits as well. Here’s how to work a bit of olive oil into your beauty regimen. Keep reading »

Quotable: Penelope Cruz Girl-Crushes On Meryl Streep And Sophia Loren

On Meryl Streep:

“There is nobody better than Meryl Streep. I watch her movies over and over again—I saw ‘Silkwood’ [1983] again a couple of weeks ago, and it made me just want to kiss her feet. We only know each other from seeing each other at awards ceremonies or those kinds of events, but whenever I see her, I always go up to her and start kissing her. I don’t even say anything—I just kiss her. She must think I’m some crazy person.”

On Sophia Loren, her co-star in “Nine”:

“She looks like a goddess. But she was always worried to see if we were eating enough. I was eating like a pig during that movie because I wanted to gain a few kilos. I was eating nonstop. But it was never enough for Sophia. She would say, “You’re not eating enough, and then you’re doing all this exercise! And I just saw Marion [Cotillard], and she left the table. That one eats less than you do—nothing!”

Hair Model Citizen: Sophia Loren Knows What Works

Film and beauty icon Sophia Loren won’t go changin’: She’s currently promoting a new film, “Nine,” and stepped out looking fabulous today. We were most struck that despite the fact that she has not changed her hairstyle in a few decades, it’s still totally working out for her. Huh. To get the look, you’ll need to find a hairdresser who still knows what a “curl and set” means. (Good luck with that one.) Basically, it’s the practice of rolling up your entire head of hair in curlers and either sitting under a huge industrial-sized hairdryer or just sleeping in them (ouch!). We suspect it involves a lot of hairspray, too. Sounds like a job for L’Oreal Elnett! [NYC, 11/16/09] Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren is sexy as hell at 73. This grandma’s still got it going on, from her redhead to her red-hot career. Sophia will be singing her way back to the big screen in Nine, a new musical which will hit theaters in 2009. In the film, she will play the ghost of the mother of famed Italian director Federico Fellini (8 ½ , Armacord). The script was written by the late Fellini and will also star Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Dame Judi Dench. But all eyes will be on Loren who, as the director Robert Marshall (Chicago) said of his first meeting with her, “My heart almost lept out of my chest because she’s so tall and beautiful. Everything you imagine her to be on screen — the humor, the warmth, that great laugh — is all there in reality.” [USA Today]
