„I was not intrigued with the accouterments of success and fame, the furs, jewels, expensive automobiles and mansions... I can assure you that these things were not on my mind when I sat spellbound in that Pozzuoli movie house. It was what these performers on the screen were doing, not what they received for doing it.“

— Sophia Loren, As quoted in Sophia, Living and Loving: Her Own Story (1979) by A. E. Hotchner, p. 63.
