Jayne Mansfield and Sophia Loren at Romanoff's in Beverly Hills

In April 1957, her bosom was the feature of a notorious publicity stunt intended to deflect attention from Sophia Loren during a dinner party in the Italian star's honor. Photographs of the encounter were published around the world. The most famous image showed Loren raising a contemptuous eyebrow at the American actress, who was standing between Loren and her dinner companion, Clifton Webb, leaned over the table and allowed her breasts to spill over her low neckline and expose one nipple.

“ Jayne Mansfield is making a career of being a girl. ”
—Walter Winchell, reporter

“ I don't know why you people [the press] like to compare me to Marilyn or that girl, what's her name, Kim Novak. Cleavage, of course, helped me a lot to get where I am. I don't know how they got there. ”
—Jayne Mansfield

“ I need to have a man around. I have to sleep with a man every night. I really do. ”
—Jayne Mansfield

"A forty-one inch bust and a lot of perseverance will get you more than a cup of coffee—a lot more."
~From Here They Are Jayne Mansfield by Raymond Strait

    Jayne Mansfield is really beautiful. I really love old movies. She's been called the next Marilyn Monroe, I don't see it, but she's beautiful none the less. :)
