ROME – Film legend Sophia Loren is recovering from successful surgery after suffering a broken leg after falling at her home in Switzerland, the 89-year-old Italian actress’s agent said on Monday.
Lauren fell in the bathroom on Sunday and surgery was performed later that day, agent Andrea Giusti said in an email. Giusti said that the operation “went very well, and now we just have to wait.”
The agent said the actress broke her hip and femur.
It was not immediately clear when Lauren would be released from the hospital.
Lauren lived in a Swiss villa near Lake Geneva for decades. Earlier this month, she appeared looking radiant with Italian designer Giorgio Armani in Venice at a fashion show held on the sidelines of the city’s annual film festival.
