"I always tried not to listen to these people," Sophia, 80, said in a new interview. "They were saying that my nose was too long and my mouth was too big."
The actress said her late husband, Carlo Ponti, even once commented on the suggestions to change her looks.
"Carlo said, 'You know the cameramen, they say that your nose is too long. Maybe you have to touch it a little bit,'" she recalled of their conversation. "And I said, 'Listen, I don't want to touch nothing on my face because I like my face. If I have to change my nose, I am going back to [Italy].'"

Sophia also reflected on what she might have looked like had she elected to get the surgery.
"At that time, they used to do noses like a French nose with a little tip at the end — they liked that," she said. "Can you imagine me with a nose like that?"
