Seventy nine years old; a theatrical giant. While posing in front of a grateful wall of photographers, at a photocall for ‘La voce umana’ at the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival; Sophia Loren said: “I’m starting to count the hours, count the seconds; everything is important when you reach my age.

Every so often you have to explode back into life.”

Sophia Loren is a monument to humanity. Head, shoulders and her very essence are far past normal mortals who have important lives, of course but Sophia surpassed them with a career that has spanned decades. She’s been a big part of the reason we love the movies.
