Would you consider that this statement is correct or incorrect

http://www.dorsetecho.co.uk/news/14546454.Screen_siren_Sophia_Loren_s_racy_pink_dress_goes_under_the...

THE racy pink dress screen siren Sophia Loren wore - and removed - on set, leading to actor Peter Sellers to become infatuated with her has been unearthed after 56 years.

The beautiful Italian actress stripped off the silk gown in the 1960 movie The Millionairess to reveal her sexy underwear in a move that got the British comic legend hot under the collar.

The dress will go on under the hammer in Dorchester later this month.

In fact, Sellers developed an unhealthy obsession for Loren off-screen and even offered to leave his wife for her.

Yes. He apparently became besotted with her, according to his former wife, and in later life confessed to his son that he was obsessed to a ridiculous degree. His relationship with his then-wife suffered apparently.

 

Loren didn't apparently return the feelings and stuck with her hubby. Why do you ask? 🤔

It's typical newspaper tittle tattle with insufficient information presented there to judge its accuracy.

in was the description "unhealthy obsession" which I questioned

Given that she was absolutely gorgeous when does besotted become unhealthy

I suppose the "and even offered to leave his wife for her." could be seen as making it unhealthyUndecided

Re: Would you consider that this statement is correct or incorrect

and how many husbands leave their wives for a younger/prettier model or wives leave husbands for another man  - why should that be classed as unhealthy

Of course as another example leaving your gorgeous wife for an old bat by comparison - I am looking at a certain member of the royal family

I'm not saying that leaving a wife/husband is unhealthy but maybe the obsession that leads to considering that option could be unhealthy?

Absolutely true Oldjim. I fancied her rotten - I was only about 17 when I saw The Millionairess.

I bet she still looks beautiful at 81.

By the way, did you ever see her in 'Two Women' (1960)? So different to The Millionairess; it won her a well deserved Academy Award.
