If there’s such a thing called TV favorite, then Sophia Loren would top the list. Loren is referred to as one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood. She started her film career at the young age of 16, and since then, she became a household name. Her acting prowess led her to earn six David di Donatello Awards for Best Actress, among many accolades to her credit. She has nothing to prove anymore since she was named the 21st greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema by the American Film Institute in 1999. She’s a megastar, indeed.

After five years being off the set and 14 years since she last starred in a US theatrical film, Loren made a comeback in 2009. She starred in Rob Marshall’s film version of Nine. The movie is based on the Broadway musical. We can never know for sure if Loren is going to retire, because, after all, she just made a comeback.
