The legendary Sophia Loren turns three quarters of a century today. After decades working in film she has become one of Italy's greatest actresses and might very well be the person who invented sex appeal. That's the lovely Ms. Loren a mere two years ago, yes! Two years ago-eat your heart out Helen Mirren's sixpack!-featured in the famous Pirelli calendar, which that year featured Naomi Watts and Penélope Cruz (who Loren is an obvious inspiration to). Sophia once said "Sex appeal is 50% what you've got and 50% what people think you've got." With her it's 100% both ways.
