Sophia Loren will be sexy, but not naked.
Legendary actress Sophia Loren laid the rumors on her being naked for Pirelli's calendar to rest by saying that she will merely be sexy and not stripping completely nude.
The actress, who will appear alongside Penelope Cruz and Naomi Watts in the legendary publication, further insists she protected her modesty.
Loren says, "The photo session was a lot of fun, and I was very surprised to be asked - but I'm not naked and it is discreet, although I hope, still sexy. I can't bear being seen nude. I'm not exactly a tiny woman and when Sophia Loren is naked, there is a lot of nakedness."
