Sophia Loren doesn't look like Sophia Loren anymore

My Godness, what has she done to herself?

Oh, the horror!

Agree, goodness me! Looks like she add an eye lift with that Asian look, like Joan Rivers and that cat lady.

by Anonymousreply 507/08/2013

I saw an interview of her years ago and she claimed she could not get a face lift because she has the sort of skin that keloids. That sounded right because I know plenty in my Italian American family who have the same problem with scars. Maybe she got some fillers or something. Its too bad. She was so beautiful. I sometimes wish the goddesses would do what Garbo did and just hide away and preserve their glamor image.

Yes, of course, better for women not to live and not to show their faces, rather than subject us to their faded looks! God forbid women have autonomous souls apart from their roles as eye candy.

I wonder if you will ever realize how misogynist and damaging your post - and attitude - is.

by Anonymousreply 1007/08/2013

I believe that Sophia Loren is one of those Italians that has some black or moorish ancestry. That is why she got away with having nice skin for so long. she looked great throughout her seventies!

And her figure!

Did you know that while Sophia Loren was the embodiment of the voluptuous Italiana in America that in fact, most Italian women do not share her type of figure.

Loren is an anomaly even to the Italians!

It's not about faded looks, R10. It's about ruining your face beyond recognition with surgery. She looks frightening.

My gawd she's at least 80 and has a better bod than moi. Leave Sophia alone!

by Anonymousreply 1407/08/2013

In the past decade (at least) she has primarily been seen in public wearing tinted eyeglasses. The absence of the glasses in these pictures explains at least a little bit why she looks so different. Also she has typically had a long bouffant hairdo which she also does not have in these pictures. The granny style in these photos isn't doing her any favors.

Aside from those two things, yes she does look a lot different, but don't discount the lack of glasses and different hair.

by Anonymousreply 1507/08/2013

It's called aging. People change. A person can only hold up for so long, and then they reach a point where you look at them and say, "They're old."

It doesn't mean they're not vital, revered, wise, funny, etc., etc., but there comes a point when they just don't look like they did when they had a certain look.

Just look at your parents. It happens.

She's 78! She looks quite good for 78. Why do you people always act like elderly people have done something to destroy their looks? If they don't die young people are going to eventually look old.

I don't think her changed looks are just because of aging. She has definitely had a lot of work done and it wasn't good at all. You'd think a woman with her money would have the best money could buy. Catherine Deneuvre(sp?) is only 8 years younger than Loren and she looks a million times better. Deneuvre has had some great work done.

by Anonymousreply 1907/08/2013

Except for those big dents under her eyes, she looks pretty good. Better, I think, than all during all those decades in which she pretended that time had stood still in 1965.

by Anonymousreply 2007/08/2013

You do realize people age differently and have different skin, hair and bone structure to begin with so cosmetic surgery isn't always going to give the same kinds of results? One is French with fair skin and the other is Italian with darker skin. Sophia Loren is not Catherine Deneuve. I'm not an expert on cosmetic surgery but it looks like Loren's sagging skin under her eyes is a natural result of aging.

by Anonymousreply 2107/08/2013

for a 78 year old woman, I think she looks just fine. you can't expect her to still live up to the image she projected in her prime, can you?

by Anonymousreply 2207/08/2013

The biggest reason she looks different is that she isn't wearing those big tinted glasses, the ones she always wears to cover the bags under her eyes. And she's had something done to her forehead, a lift if not botox, but IMHO her face looks puffy because of the baggy eyes and not because of fillers or implants.

Her figure is mind-boggling, for a woman of her age. I wonder how much of that is natural, and how much is steel reinforcing?

I don't know about and eye job, she's got visible bags under her eyes even when shot from above at a distance. If she's hand any surgical procedures, I'd guess a neck tightening or a laser neck tightening. She was never the most vain gal in Hollywood, but she was always a very likable human being.

by Anonymousreply 2807/08/2013

I think it is kind of sweet that she is doing this as a favor for her son.

You want to get asses in the seats?

Have your Momma, who may be one of the most famous people in the world come out of a nice retirement and recite some lines and show them some acting chops. Win-win.

She went through so much drama to have her babies back in the day. It's nice to see them together.

She looks just fine to me.

R15, at her age she may have some balance problems. Heels are bad for women of any age, but Sophia is well past the age where she should be wearing them, especially on uneven pavement like cobblestones.

(taking off earrings) – I will find and come for any bitch that talks about my Screen Goddess Sophia! For someone of her age, one of the few still living screen legends from the classic B&W pre-1970s era, she looks DAMN GOOD! Her figure is just as fabulous as it was back in the day. As a classic film buff, I love this woman. Whenever she shows up as an Oscar presenter, I’m in heaven.

Btw, is one of her sons openly gay?

Not this one. At least not openly. He's married to Sasha Alexander and they have 2 kids.

by Anonymousreply 3907/08/2013

What I found touching is she is holding on to the son and the other guy in each of the photos, is she unsteady on her legs?

I saw her up close in 1979 when she was signing a book in London at the Selfridges department store, which was packed full. She signed my book and smiled. Stunning face. She had aged well up to now, and doesnt look as false as Joan Collins. Her great rival Gina Lollobrigida also looks odd now and she's 85 !

Loren though has to be very wealthy, and also as the widow of Carlo Ponti. She even went to jail for a few weeks to avoid paying tax, back in the 70s.

You only have to look at El Cid or Yesterday Today & Tomorrow, or Houseboat with Cary Grant to see what a stunner she was. She was as famous as Liz Taylor then.

I love her in It Started In Naples with Clark Gable who was 30 years older than her, and she is super in Arabesque in 1966 with Greg Peck. She is terrific too in those early ones like Boy On a Dolphin with Clifton Webb, or Legend of the Lost with Wayne. She also starred with Brando, Newman, Burton, O'Toole etc. Good to see her still around rather than being holed up in Geneva.

I think it's her eye makeup as well as plastic surgery. I googled some recent photos and her eye makeup is extreme. Without the heavy liner and eye shadow she's sported in recent years her eyes look rather ordinary, like they do in op's link. She's lost her signature look, but she still looks great for 78.

The photos are quite touching I find, as though she has suddenly aged and needs to hold on them to keep her steady. She will be 79 in September, the age my mother was when she died ... We forget these great beauties may still look terrific for a long time but they are ageing too and it always catches up with them eventually.

by Anonymousreply 9207/10/2013

I guess age and plastic surgery are finally catching up with her. She preserved her essential look and beauty pretty well, into her 70s. But time does not forgive the aging process. She was one of the most glorious looking human beings I have ever seen in her younger and even slightly younger days. I have seen her up close as recent as about 8 years ago- standing in a hospital lobby speaking to someone, no entourage- in a red suit with those signature large glasses. She looked stunning at about 6 feet in her heals, maybe more. I've always thought she was a class act.

by Anonymousreply 9307/10/2013

Looks like she's had some bad (or too much) plastic surgery or fillers around the eyes. I guess she wanted to look younger. But the surgery just makes her look strange, and that's true of a lot of celebrities, some much younger than she is.

Her eyes were one of her best features. They were huge, long-lashed, stunning.

It's sad to see screens goddesses (or gods) get older. When you see them on screen when they're young that image is indelibly printed on your mind. So to see them old and without their youthful good looks is a shock.

To criticize aging actors and actresses for their lost looks is unfair, unless they've ruined their looks with endless plastic surgeries. I don't think Loren has had a lot of work done; I think the work she did have done was done badly.
