"The first time he invited me out to dinner I thought I hadn’t understood correctly so I asked: ‘You and me? Out for dinner? Are you sure?" ‘Yes, darling, you and me, out for dinner.’ "He’d bought a flaming red MG, in which he raced me round the gently rolling Spanish countryside. Our first evening together was magical, and we ended up chatting like old friends." 📸: "Houseboat" 1958. Happy Birthday Cary Grant 🌹 #🇮🇹👑 #SophiaLoren #CaryGrant ‘Hollywood is a simple fairy tale; if you understand that, you’ll never get hurt,’ he told me.

When they first met, there was instant attraction on both ends but Sophia was beginning to get romantically involved with Carlo Ponti, while Cary Grant was with his third wife. Sophia wrote in her autobiography that Grant urged they pray together for guidance about whether to leave their partners.
“You’ll be in my prayers. If you think and pray with me, for the same thing and purpose, all will be right and life will be good.” Cary Grant sent her daily bouquets. But in the end, Sophia chose Carlo. 📸: On the set of "The Pride and the Passion" 1957. Happy Birthday Cary Grant 🌹 #🇮🇹👑 #SophiaLoren #CaryGrant

Happy Birthday Cary Grant 🌹 "Evening after evening we dined on the craggy hilltops to the accompaniment of flamenco guitars. We drank the good Spanish wine and laughed and confided in each other and fell in love. I was fascinated with him, with his warmth, affection, intelligence and his wonderfully dry, mischievous sense of humor." Sophia on Cary Grant. 📸: Publicity still for "Houseboat" 1958. #SophiaLoren #CaryGrant #Houseboat

“Everything I’ve ever wanted I’ve had to wait for. To be a wife I had to wait because my husband was married. That was not his fault. Then to have my children I had to wait, and fight. But I wanted children and I got them. Life has not been easy for me.” 📸: Shot by Peter Basch, 1963. #SophiaLoren #PeterBasch

“My aim was to act, to find roles that put me in the category of actresses with a capital A. If doing the so-called sexy roles gave me the popularity to choose what I wanted, fine with me. But I always did them with a great sense of humor, pulling my leg, everybody’s leg. I had the look in my eye that said I was amused by it all.” 📸: 1960. #🇮🇹👑 #SophiaLoren

Kiss me. I'm Italian. #🇮🇹👑 #SophiaLoren

Sophia is currently 82 years old, and has been in the film industry for 68 years. A new book has just been released surrounding the life of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's tumultuous romance, written by photographer Gianni Bozzacchi, which claims Elizabeth Taylor was worried Sophia Loren would steal her man away when they filmed 📸: "The Voyage" in 1974, together. Elizabeth considered Sophia the most beautiful female in the world and was convinced Richard and Sophia had a love affair while on set. Sophia was married to her husband, Carlo Ponti and Elizabeth left her husband during the time him and Sophia filmed this movie together. Fun Fact: Carlo Ponti was the producer of "The Voyage". #🇮🇹👑 #SophiaLoren #ElizabethTaylor #RichardBurton #CarloPonti #TheVoyage #JealousyKills #IlViaggio #1974 #GianniBozzacchi
