The 20th century’s most iconic movie diva and Oscar-winning Italian actress, Sophia Loren, underwent surgery on Monday due to a fall at her Geneva home, according to a spokesman for the star.
According to the spokeswoman, the 89-year-old Loren’s surgery “went well, and now she needs to rest and everything will be resolved,” they told Reuters in an email.
While he withheld information, he insisted that media reports from Italy were accurate. According to the rumors, she fell accidentally on Sunday at her Geneva home and shattered her hip.
In 1961, Loren received her first Oscar for her sad depiction of a mother caught up in World War II in Vittorio De Sica’s neo-realistic masterpiece “La Ciociara” (Two Women). 1991 saw a career award as the second.
She co-starred in some of the most enduring and popular movies alongside fellow Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni, who passed away in 1996. Along with other legendary actors from the 20th century, she has co-starred in movies alongside Cary Grant, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, and Paul Newman.
She had her most recent leading part in the 2020 film “La Vita Davanti a Se” (The Life Ahead).
She portrays a former prostitute and Holocaust survivor who aids an orphaned Senegalese migrant boy who had robbed her while caring for the kids of working prostitutes in the southern Italian city of Bari.
Edoardo Ponti, her son, was the director.
The Sophia Loren Restaurant, a chain of establishments bearing her name, posted the initial information about the incident and hospitalization on its Facebook page.
It stated that she had been preparing to debut a brand-new one on Tuesday in Bari, Italy’s fourth.
