Back when movies were made for adults, there was no better, no more handsome, a screen couple than Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. Watch any of their films (they made twelve together in all!) and you are instantly transported to an era of class and dignity.
They were twice nominated for Oscars for films they starred in together; she for “Marriage, Italian Style” and he for “A Special Day.”
The music is “Always” by Lara Fabian.
Sophia’s primary residence has been in Geneva, Switzerland since late 2006. She also owns homes in Naples and Rome.
In September 1999, Loren filed a lawsuit against 76 adult websites for posting altered nude photos of her on the internet.
Loren first met Carlo Ponti, Sr. in 1950 when she was 15 and he was 37. They married on 17 September 1957. However, Ponti was still officially married to his first wife Giuliana under Italian law because Italy did not recognize divorce at that time. The couple had their marriage annulled in 1962 to escape bigamy charges. In 1965, Ponti obtained a divorce from Giuliana in France, allowing him to marry Loren on 9 April 1966.
The couple became French citizens after their application was approved by then French President Georges Pompidou.
Marcello Mastroianni married actress Flora Carabella (1926–1999) in 1950. They had one child together, Barbara (born 1952), and eventually separated because of his affairs with other women. Mastroianni’s first serious relationship after the separation was with Faye Dunaway, his co-star in A Place for Lovers (1968). Dunaway wanted to marry and have children, but Mastroianni, a Catholic, refused to divorce Carabella. In 1971, after three years of waiting for Mastroianni to change his mind, Dunaway left him.
Mastroianni had a daughter, Chiara Mastroianni, with actress Catherine Deneuve, his partner for four years in the 1970s. During that time, the couple made four movies together: It Only Happens to Others (1971), La cagna (1972), A Slightly Pregnant Man (1973) and Don’t Touch the White Woman! (1974).
According to People magazine, Mastroianni’s other lovers included actresses Lauren Hutton, Ursula Andress, Anouk Aimee and Claudia Cardinale. Around 1976, he became involved with Anna Maria Tatò, an author and filmmaker, although they did not form an exclusive relationship until the early 1980s. They remained together until his death.
