Italian actress Sophia Loren suffered a serious fall at her home in Geneva on Sunday. How is his health?
It's a big scare for moviegoers around the world. Sophia Loren is recovering on Monday after undergoing surgery following a hip fracture. The 89-year-old Italian actress had suffered a fall the day before at her home in Geneva, resulting in a fracture.
But fortunately there was more fear than harm, the actress was "successfully operated on", said a restaurant chain in her name this Monday on Facebook. “She will have to observe a brief period of convalescence and then rehabilitation sessions.”
Sophia Loren is a true legend of Italian cinema, renowned for her talent but also for her status as a “sex symbol”. She began her career in the 1950s and starred in numerous internationally successful films, such as “La ciociara” by Vittorio de Sica, “Italian Wedding” and “The Fall of the Roman Empire”.
She has won two Academy Awards, one for "La ciociara" in 1962 and one for Lifetime Achievement in 1991. She is also the winner of an acting award at the Cannes Film Festival for "La ciociara" in 1961. Having celebrated her 89th birthday on September 20, Sophia Loren is becoming increasingly rare in the cinema. His last appearance on the big screen dates back to the adaptation of Romain Gary directed by his son “La vie avant soi”, in 2020.
