Elvis Presley and Sophia Loren’s electrifying encounter: ‘I sat on his lap and kissed him’ | Films | Entertainment

Sophia apparently reassured him, “Elvis I think you are a very nice boy” and The King joked back: “Thanks a lot! You know that’s the worst thing you can say about me.”

It all starts to sound a little staged when Elvis also told the watching photographer and crowd: “You know, I’ve seen every picture she’s ever made. She’s only seen one of mine.”

Sophia, though, has insisted she spontaneously went over to talk to Elvis, and he certainly always had the quick wit and charm to turn any situation into a crowd-pleaser, even after revealing something so personal.

The following month, in March 1958, Elvis left for military service where he would meet Priscilla in 1960.

Sophia, herself, had considerable complications in her own private life. She had been having an affair with Carlo Ponti, the man who would become her husband but was married to another woman at the time.

During 1957 and 1958, Sophia also became involved with her co-star Cary Grant, who was also married but offered to leave his wife, Betsy Drake, for her.
