Sophia Loren was discovered by Carlo Ponti when she entered a beauty contest that...
***gasp for breath***
***choke, swallow uncomfortably***
***take a sip of water***
...that she did not win. This means there was a hotter woman walking the earth than Sophia Loren. Is this even possible? Do the laws of thermodynamics and underwire brassiere reinforcement even allow for this? Did they immediately shut the winner away in a convent because you'd turn to a pillar of garlic salt if you looked at her or something?
