Italian cinema’s leading lady Sophia Loren will be bringing her Hollywood glamour to Tel Aviv’s Mann Auditorium on November 25 at 9 p.m.
As part of her one-woman show, An Evening with Sophia Loren, the 81-year-old icon will share memories of her fabled career in Hollywood, her native Italy, play clips of some of her favorite scenes from her movies, and engage the audience in a Q&A session. Bill Harris of Entertainment Tonight will moderate the Q&A session.
Loren, once a major sex symbol on a par with Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot, has frequently been voted in public polls as the most beautiful woman in the world.
Born in 1934 in Rome, Italy, Loren is a veteran of over 100 movies spanning over five decades. In 1962 she gained worldwide fame for her role in Two Women for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role and made her the first artist to win an Oscar for a foreign- language performance. Other notable performances include Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow (1963), which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film, Marriage, Italian Style (1964), for which she earned another Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and A Countess from Hong Kong (1967), co-starring Marlon Brando.To purchase tickets (starting from NIS 300) visit www.leaan.co.il or call *8780.
