Loren: 'I Made Sure Kids Had Access To Father'
Italian actress SOPHIA LOREN was determined to never have a baby out of wedlock after she was bullied as a child for not having a father figure. The 71-year-old made a habit out of seeking relationships with older men in a bid to replace the father she never had. And the Oscar-winning star made sure her own children always had access to their dad. She says, "I have been taunted cruelly for not having a father and so I could never do that to my baby. "Growing up, my dream was to have a father, and that is why I sought him everywhere. I made my best films with actors and directors like him and I married an older man like him."
