Sophia Loren Thinks Young Women Should 'Be More Careful' When It Comes To Plastic Surgery

"You can end up looking worse than what you thought you originally were."

At the 2015 National Arts Awards, actress Sophia Loren told press that she is not a fan of the word "retire" and doesn't like when younger girls decide to get plastic surgery. 

Speaking to Page Six, the 81-year-old actress talked about cosmetic procedures and what could potentially go wrong.

"These young girls really need to be more careful and selective of what they are doing to their bodies and their faces," said Loren. "I mean, you do not know for sure if you are going to a good doctor ... you can end up looking worse than what you thought you originally were." 

Loren has spoken about plastic surgery before, telling ABC News that the decision to go under the knife is very personal. 

"I like myself,” she said. “I like my skin. I don’t want anybody to take it away from me. So I couldn’t do anything, really. But if it becomes a problem, it’s up to you."

One thing Loren doesn't really like? Social media and its link to fame. 

"I do not know much about social media, but it seems that that’s what makes people more famous," said the actress. "My era of Hollywood was much better -- you were known for your skill and talent."
