Gina Lollobrigida: Italian Goddess

The golden age of the movies featured several beautiful women who became famous because of their looks. Women like Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Sophia Loren were beautiful women that garnered lots of attention from the opposite sex. However, very few of these actresses could also act. One such woman with a combination of looks and acting skills was Italian beauty, Gina Lollabrigida.

Gina Lollabrigida was born on July 4, 1927 in Subiaco, Italy. Lollabrigida lived in the picturesque mountains of Italy as the daughter of a furniture manufacturer. At an early age, it became obvious that Lollabrigida was beautiful, and at an early age did some modeling. This lead to her participating in and winning some local beauty contests. In 1947, Lollabridgida was a contestant in the Miss Italy beauty pageant, and finished third.

As a teenager, Gina Lollabrigida began acting in movies in Italy. Because of her work in these movies, she was noticed by the Hollywood movie studios and in 1953 was signed to appear in Beat the Devil, her first English language film. She received very good reviews from the movie which lead to her first big film, The World’s Most Beautiful Woman.

Her combination of beauty and acting talent led to other roles in movies such as Trapeze, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Solomon and Sheba, Strange Bedfellows and Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell.  During this time she worked with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood including Frank Sinatra, Burt Lancaster and Rock Hudson.

By the early 1970’s Lollabrigida started to curtail her acting career and started her second career in photography. She ended up publishing three books of photographs, which were very well received. Although her film career was coming to an end, she made a couple of movie and television appearances in the 80’s and 90’s. 

Gina Lollabrigida was a film icon in the 50’s and 60’s, and her photos were on the covers of many magazines of the time. Her beauty and talent made her admired by her peers, and she was the object of affection by most of the male population of her generation. In her personal life, Gina Lollabridgida was married a few times and was also seen dating some of the most eligible bachelors in the world.

Lollabridgida was recognized in Italy by winning several awards, and won one Golden Globe in 1961 as World’s Favorite Star. Gina Lollabridgida – actress, photographer and Italian Goddess will be remembered fondly for years to come.
