(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 8 – Sophia Loren told Variety in an
interview on Women’s Day Monday that she had gained
self-confidence when she “accepted” her own face at the age of
16 after being told her nose was too long and her mouth to big
to make it in the movies.
    The screen diva, now 86, said “the moment I took possession of
my face was when my face became beautiful to other people’s
eyes.
    “I changed my attitude and my eyes reflected my new confidence
in myself.
    “A confidence which was the first brick on which I built my
career.”
Loren, who won an Oscar for Two Women (1961), recently gained
fresh acclaim for her performance in her son Edoardo Ponti’s
latest film The Life Ahead.
    She told Variety: “At the age of 86 I still have a lot to give,
but I can say that so far I have had a good life. I have been
lucky but I’ve also worked hard to get what I have”. (ANSA).
