The legendary Italian actor who recently appeared on an episode of the BBC Radio 4 show is now trending on Twitter.
Speaking to Lauren Laverne, Loren discussed a number of topics, including her childhood memories of the war and her “perfect role” in Vittorio De Sica’s 1954 film The Gold of Naples.
However, the 86-year-old has received the most attention on social media for her answer to Laverne’s question about what luxury item she would take to a deserted island.

Loren replied: “A pizza oven.” Although guests on the radio show – known as “castaways” – are usually not allowed to choose anything practical (such as food or a life raft), Loren defended her answer, stating that making pizza is more than just eating.
“It’s like writing a poem, cooking a pizza. So if you don’t feel like it, don’t, but if you feel like it, you have the time of your life, ”said the Oscar winner.
A user on Twitter quoted Loren as saying, “Sophia Loren on #DesertIslandDiscs is a big Friday mewd.”
“Sophia Loren chose Debussy and Ella and her luxury item was a pizza oven. Carlo Ponti was lucky, wasn’t he? “Added another person.
Ponti, a film producer, was Loren’s husband from 1966 to 2007.
Among the tracks the actor picked were “Claire De Lune” by Claude Debussy – a song she dedicated to her mother – and Ella Fitzgerald’s “I Got You Under My Skin”.
A third user commented, “Sophia Loren just picked a pizza oven as a luxury item on Desert Island Discs, and frankly, I’ve never respected anyone again.” While someone else said, “Sophia Loren bringing a pizza oven to her island is the joy I live for.”
“Sophia Loren has chosen a pizza oven for her lonely island. Goddess! ”Wrote another.
Loren most recently starred in Netflix’s The Life Ahead, a film by her son Edoardo Ponti.
