‘World’s most beautiful woman’ Gina Lollobrigida dies

Actress Gina Lollobrigida, one of the biggest stars of European cinema in the 1950s and ’60s, has died at the age of 95, Italian news agency Ansa reports. She was once described as “the most beautiful woman in the world” for roles in films such as Crossed Swords (1954), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1956) and Beautiful But Dangerous (1955).

Throughout her career, she has performed with Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson, Errol Flynn, and more.

She was considered an international sex symbol, and at the time of her death, Lollobrigida was one of the last actors to live through the golden age of Hollywood cinema.

When her acting career slowed down, Gina became a photojournalist in the 1970s, famously securing an interview with Cuban politician Fidel Castro.

She also had a career in politics. In 1999 Lollobrigida ran for the European Parliament as a candidate for the Italian Democratic Party, but she was unsuccessful.

Just last year, 95-year-old Lollobrigida ran as a candidate for the Italian Sovereign National Party (ISP) and tried to win a seat in the Republican Senate.

But she failed after winning just 1% of her constituency’s vote.
