Italian actress Sophia Loren was recently hospitalized. She addressed her fans in a special statement.

On Sunday, 89-year-old Sophia Loren fell in the bathroom of her Swiss residence. She suffered serious injuries, including a broken hip and femur. She was quickly taken to the hospital. Surgery was needed.

The actress's two sons - Carlo and Edoardo - were keeping a vigil by her bedside. Media reported that she faces a long road to recovery. Consequently, all the plans the star had (like her presence at the opening of the world's fourth restaurant in her name in the town of Bari) have been cancelled.

On Tuesday, the star issued a brief statement. "Thank you all for your closeness and feelings you have shown me. I'm feeling better, I just need to undergo rehabilitation and take some time off" - she informed.

Let's remind, that Loren is one of the most famous stars of global cinema. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked her 21st in the "greatest actresses of all time" ranking. In 1961, for her role in the movie "Mother and Daughter" she received an Oscar. It was the first award in the history of the Film Academy for a non-English language performance. During her career, she won a record 10 David di Donatello awards. She also has Golden Globes to her credit. She has worked with directors such as Sidney Lumet, George Cukor and Charlie Chaplin.
