Mama Mia, Sophia Loren is Still Stunning at 76!

Sophia Loren

If anyone can prove that age is just a number, Sophia Loren can.

Famous for her saucy roles in films like Desire Under the Elms, the Italian actress showed off her legs (and other ample parts) recently at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ tribute in Beverly Hills, California.

Wearing a mid-knee, shimmering black gown with sling back stilettos, Loren’s hair was swept back in a youthful updo. Not many women can carry off this look, but Sophia Loren stood out easily even among younger celebrities like Eva Mendes and Christina Ricci.

What’s the Italian bombshell’s secret to looking so young?

She now credits her beauty to a combination of exercise and positive thinking.

Exercise consists of walking around a park for an hour and thinking: “Maybe round the corner I am going to find something beautiful.” She also does 45 minutes of stretching and abdominal crunches every morning.

In addition to eating a healthy, portion-controlled diet that includes a large lunch and a light dinner, the award-winning actress always thinks positively and is rarely in a sad or melancholic mood (probably because she’s so fit and fabulous!).
