Sophia Loren was born as Sofia Scicolone at the Clinica Regina Margherita in Rome, Italy, on September 20, 1934.
Her father, Riccardo Scicolone, was married to another woman and refused to marry her mother, Romilda Villani, despite the fact that she was the mother of his two children (Sophia and her younger sister Maria Scicolone).
Growing up in the slums of Pozzuoli during the second World War without any support from her father, she experienced much sadness in her childhood.
Her life took an unexpected turn for the best when, at age 14, she entered into a beauty contest where she placed as one of the finalists.
It was there that Sophia caught the attention of film producer Carlo Ponti, some 22 years her senior, whom she eventually married in 1966 once he finally obtained a divorce from his first wife.
