Gina Lollobrigida * Mini Biography

Gina LolobrigidaGina Lollobrigida (born 4 July 1927 in Subiaco, Italy), is an Italian actress and photojournalist. She was one of Italy's most prominent actresses of the 1950s and early 1960s.

Born Luigina Lollobrigida, she was one of four daughters of a furniture manufacturer (her sisters are Giuliana, Maria and Fernanda). She spent her youth in a picturesque mountain village. In her youth, Gina did some modelling, and from there she went to participate successfully in several beauty contests. At around this time, she began appearing in Italian language films. In 1947, Gina entered the Miss Italia pageant and came in 3rd place. The contest was won by Lucia Bosé and second place was Gianna Maria Canale - they would both go on to be actresses, though neither would come near Lollobrigida's success.

Her appearance in Italian films brought her to the attention of Hollywood and she made her first American film, Beat the Devil, in 1953. As her popularity increased, Lollobrigida earned the nickname The World's Most Beautiful Woman after her signature 1955 movie.

She made another notable appearance in Trapeze with Burt Lancaster in 1956 and starred in The Hunchback of Notre Dame the same year. In 1959 she co-starred with Frank Sinatra in Never So Few and with Yul Brynner in Solomon and Sheba. The latter was notable for having Brynner replace Tyrone Power (who died during filming), for being the last film directed by King Vidor, and for an orgy scene extremely licentious for Hollywood motion pictures of that era.

Who Dated Gina Lollabrigida

Quotes from Gina Lollobrigida

“I studied painting and sculpting at school and became an actress by mistake .... I've had many lovers and still have romances. I am very spoiled. All my life, I've had too many admirers.”

My cinema – the 50’s and 60’s – is different from the cinema today, so I thought it would not be bad to show that kind of cinema where we could dream.

Sophia Loren plays peasants.  I play ladies.

A woman at 20 is like ice, at 30 she is warm and at 40 she is hot.

I do what I like now. I just don't have time for it all.
