Is Sophia Loren still acting? Does she have a fan club and where can I get an autographed photo?
—Kathy M, Georgia
Yes, the woman who has been deemed one of the world's greatest beauties still acts on occasion. Most recently she starred in a movie written and directed by her son, Edourdo Ponti. The Italian film, Between Strangers, released in 2002 and shown at the Toronto Film Festival, was his directorial debut. Of course, it wasn't so long ago that she appeared in major films such as Grumpier Old Men (1995) and Ready to Wear (1994). Now 69, she's still active, a passionate cook, and a devoted wife and mother. Still strikingly beautiful, she once said, "There's a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly defeat age." Though she has an official website, it does not distribute autographed photos and there does not appear to be an official fan club that does.
