Gina Lollobrigida is an Italian actress, photojournalist and sculptress. She was born on July 4, 1927 in Subiaco, Italy, to a family of modest means. Her father was a bricklayer and her mother was a homemaker. Lollobrigida had four siblings, three sisters and a brother. She was educated at a local school in Subiaco and later attended the Academy of Dramatic Art in Rome.

Lollobrigida made her film debut in 1945 in the Italian film, “Pensione Edelweiss.” She quickly gained popularity in Italy for her beauty and sex appeal. In the 1950s, she began appearing in American and British films, such as “Beat the Devil” (1953) with Humphrey Bogart and “Solomon and Sheba” (1959) with Tyrone Power. Lollobrigida’s career reached its height in the 1960s with such films as “Woman of the Year” (1962) with Spencer Tracy and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1963) with Anthony Quinn.

In the 1970s, Lollobrigida began to focus more on her personal life and less on her career. She married businessman Milko Skofic in 1971 and had a son with him, Andrea. The couple divorced in 1982. Lollobrigida also became interested in photography and sculpture during this time.

In the 1990s, Lollobrigida made a comeback in films with roles in “Ready to Wear” (1994) and “Mulholland Falls” (1996). She has since retired from acting but remains active as a photojournalist and sculptress.

Lollobrigida has a net worth of $40 million. She has been married twice and has one son.

1I have experience seducing nephews.
2A woman at 20 is like ice, at 30 she is warm and at 40 she is hot.
3I do what I like now. I just don't have time for it all.
4I've had many lovers and still have romances. I am very spoiled. All my life, I've had too many admirers.
5There is only one trouble with having played the most famous courtesan of all times and that is, after Sheba, all other roles will certainly seem tame and anticlimactic.
6My cinema -- the '50s, '60s -- is different from the cinema today so I thought that it would not be bad to show that kind of cinema where we could dream.
7Popularity has a bright side, it unlocks many doors. But the truth is that I don't like it very much because it changes the private life into a very small thing.


1Retired from acting in 1997 after 50 years in the motion picture industry.
2In October 2006, at age 79, she announced to Spain's ¡Hola! magazine her engagement to a 45-year-old Spanish businessman, Javier Rigau y Rafols. They had met at a party in Monte Carlo in 1984 and had since become companions. The engagement was called off on 6 December 2006, reportedly because of the strain of intense media interest. In January 2013, she started legal action against Javier Rigau y Rafols, claiming that her ex-boyfriend had staged a secret ceremony in which he "married" an imposter pretending to be her at a registry office in Barcelona. She said he intended to lay claim to her estate after her death. Lollobrigida accused Rigau of fraud, saying that he had earlier obtained the legal right to act on her behalf with a power of attorney, and carried out the plot to get extra power.
3Has one grandson: Dimitri Milko.
4Gave birth to her first child at age 30, a son Milko Skofic Jr. on July 28, 1957. Child's father is now ex-husband, Milko Skofic.
5In May 2013, her diamond jewelry sold for more than $4.9 million in Geneva, setting an auction record for pearl earrings, according to Sotheby's. The earrings beat the $1.98 million figure set in 2011 from the sale of ones made by Bulgari for Elizabeth Taylor. Lollobrigida said was selling the jewelry to raise money for stem cell research.
6Was originally considered for one of the leading roles of Lady L (1965).
7Joey "The Lips" Fagan's trumpet in the Roddy Doyle novel "The Commitments" is named after her.
8Was head of the jury at the Berlin International Film Festival in 1986.
9Was considered for the role of Asunción Olazábal in Más allá del horizonte (1994), which went to Luisa Kuliok.
10Has three sisters: Guiliana, Maria and Fernanda Lollobrigida.
11She was placed third in the Miss Italy competition in 1947 behind Lucia Bosé and Gianna Maria Canale.
12She was a successful photojournalist and scooped the world's press by obtaining an exclusive interview with Fidel Castro.
13"Lollo", a kind of curly lettuce, was named after her.
14In November 1998, £10,000 worth of her jewels was stolen from a bag. This happened at a hotel reception in Munich, Germany, while she was waiting for a taxi to the airport.
15Born at 8:00am-CET.
