Sophia Loren, a legendary figure in Italian cinema, underwent hip surgery after falling at her Geneva home. She is currently healing. She had just turned 89 years old when the tragedy happened. Thankfully, the operation was a success, as shown by a statement issued by the chain of eateries bearing her name, Loren.
According to the statement, Sophia Loren would require a short period of recovery followed by a rehabilitation program. It expressed relief that the procedure went well and looked forward to her prompt return.
Sophia Loren, who rose to fame in Hollywood and won two Oscars during her brilliant career, was born into poverty in Naples. She was also a well-known sex symbol in the 1950s and 1960s, which made her one of Italy’s most well-known film exports. She insisted that substance was more important than appearances, saying that beauty on its own was insufficient. She emphasized the importance of one’s inner self, including their soul, beliefs, and relationships, in an interview with CBS News in 2020.
After a protracted absence, Loren made her way back to the big screen in 2020 to play the title role in her son Edoardo Ponti’s Netflix film “La Vita Davanti a Se” (The Life Ahead). The unexpected bond between a Holocaust survivor and a Senegalese orphan is the film’s main theme. Nearly six decades after earning an Oscar for her work in Vittorio de Sica’s “La Ciociara” (“Two Women”), a movie about the struggles a mother goes through during wartime, she received praise for her portrayal in this part.
In 1991, Sophia Loren was honored with a lifetime achievement Oscar in appreciation of her extraordinary contributions to the film business.
