Italian movie legend Sophia Loren has released a statement after surgery to repair a broken leg.
The 89-year old thanked fans for their affection and said she’s better, just in need of some rest.
Earlier this month, she appeared, looking radiant, with Italian designer Giorgio Armani at a fashion show in Venice.
The Academy Award winning actress fell in her home in Switzerland over the weekend fracturing a thigh bone.
Loren had the surgery Sunday at a hospital near her villa on Lake Geneva, where she’s lived for decades.
