The Juicy Story Behind The Infamous Sophia Loren-Jayne Mansfield Photo
By | October 12, 2017
A photo taken 60 years ago of Hollywood’s two most alluring sex symbols is still getting a lot of attention. The most famous side-eye or even stink eye photo in history belongs to Sophia Loren’s reaction to Jayne Mansfield and her famous large assets! Here’s a little history of the iconic photo that appeared in newspapers and magazines with the word ‘censored’ hiding Jayne's exposed breast.
The story goes that Sophia Loren was at a Paramount party in Beverly Hills that was organized for her when she was a newcomer to Hollywood in 1957. Everyone who was anyone was there. But the last person to come to this event was the va-va-voom force of nature that was blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield. She sat down at Sophia’s table which included actor Clifton Webb and of course, had every eye in the room watching her. She barely dressed for this event and her famous ample breasts were the focus of a notorious publicity stunt intended to take the media attention away from newcomer Sophia. Loren couldn’t help but stare at her exposed nipple, as she was fearful that they would come down crashing down on her plate! She said she was afraid that everything in her dress was going to explode, BOOM! And spill all over the table.
