Yes, Sharon Stone looks amazing in her 50’s, but even more amazing is how Sofia Loren looks in her ripe old 70’s. Even better than some do in their 30’s I might add. And if I looked as fabuloso as Sophia does at her age, I would pose for the iconic Pirelli Calendar too.
Another good thing about Sophia is that she always kept her respectability (unlike Shaz and the famous beaver), refusing to do revealing poses in her 50-year-plus career in show business.
As she hit her 72nd birthday, however, she has agreed to pose seductively, but tastefully for the limited edition Pirelli Calendar in which the Italian actress appears in a slinky see-through black dress revealing enough to distract from an impressive pair of drop-diamond earrings.
Sofia said of the recent shoot :
“I enjoyed myself posing as if I was a little girl again.”
In Milan, a Pirelli spokesman commented: “I can confirm that Sophia Loren has posed for the 2007 Pirelli calendar. The pictures were shot last week in America and she looks fantastic – you wouldn’t think she is nearly 72 years old.”
As Sofia famously said:
“You have to be born a sex symbol. You don’t become one. If you are born with it, you will have it even when you are 100 years old.“
