Sophia Loren turns 78 today! Fun fact: The Italian actress, who was one of the first to star in "talkie" films, earned the very first Academy Award for a non-English speaking role for her portrayal of Cesira in 1960's Two Women. (We also enjoyed watching her slink across the stage as Mamma in 2009's Nine.) Widely renowned as one of the most beautiful women of all time, she seems to not have aged a single day in her more than seven decades of life. We can all only hope for that kind of everlasting youth! Click through the gallery to see Sophia Loren's beauty evolution.
