Italian Star Sophia Loren Undergoes Emergency Surgery After Fall


The Oscar-winning actress Sophia Loren underwent emergency surgery after falling in the bathtub at her home in Switzerland.

According to her representative Andrea Giusti, Loren had “serious fractures” in several parts of her hip and femur at the age of 89. It was also revealed that Loren’s two sons, Carlo and Edoardo Ponti, had been by her side throughout this difficult time.

The surgery was successful, and Loren now has to relax as part of her recovery, according to a spokeswoman cited by Reuters.

Sophia Loren has had a remarkable career, rising to Hollywood prominence despite being born into poverty in Naples. She received an Oscar in 1962 for her work in Vittorio de Sica’s movie “La Ciociara” (also known as “Two Women”). This was a historic occasion because it was the first time an actor or actress received an Academy Award for a performance in a language other than English.

Over the course of her career, Loren appeared on cinema alongside great actors like Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, and Cary Grant. She received an honorary Oscar in 1990, and her career took off again in 2021 thanks to a well-received turn in “The Life Ahead,” which was directed by her son Edoardo. In this movie, Loren played a Holocaust survivor who develops an intense bond with a young Senegalese immigrant who is 12 years old.
