There was this skinhead that was harrasing her, and she just walked right up to him and said: "I’m more of a man that you’ll ever be. And more of a woman that you’ll ever get."
FAKE TV MEME: DESCENT
The height of the Italian Renaissance. Daily, artistes from the road file into the city of il Magnifico to partake in the grandeur and decadence of a world awakening to its potential after a thousand years of dormancy. In the workshop of Botticelli, that foremost artist of Lorenzo, young Giacomo delle Fave slaves away, mixing paints to feed himself and his mother, dreaming one day of painting a work to last a thousand years. When he meets Annalise, the young widow of a Flemish nobleman, who has come to have her portrait painted, Giacomo knows that he has found his muse.
There is, however, more to the widow than meets the eye. She is young, yet she is not. She is warm, except when she is cold. And when the curtains draw and Giacomo grinds away at his paints, she speaks of a kingdom far away, beyond the mountains of the alps, below the waves of the Aegean, deep below the black earth, where gold lines the walls and the wine never stops flowing, where the great men of aeons past congregate to hear her speak.
"When the picture is done, bello," she says. "I will take you."

Her curves and beauty could certainly rival that of Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot, not to mention her career and lifestyle choices. While Monroe’s and Bardot’s talents were questionable outside of their looks, Sophia won 50 awards during her career including an Oscar for Best Actress (the first woman to do so for a non-english speaking role), a Golden Globe award, Grammy Award, BAFTA and Laurel Award. Unlike her fellow sex symbol actresses of the day who went from one playboy to another, Sophia Loren stayed married from the age of 22 to her husband, Italian film producer Carlo Ponti, until his death 50 years later. When asked if she would ever marry again, like a true romantic she replied, “No, never again. It would be impossible to love anyone else”.
