In 2014, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sophia Loren revealed the story behind the side eye in the photo:


"All of cinema was there, it was incredible. And then comes in Jayne Mansfield, the last one to come. For me,that was when it got amazing. She came right for my table. She knew everyone was watching. She sat down. And now, she was barely… Listen. Look at the picture.

Where are my eyes? I’m staring at her nipples because I am afraid they are about to come onto my plate.

In my face you can see the fear. I’m so frightened that everything in her dress is going to blow—BOOM!—and spill all over the table."


The "Modern Family" actors Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen recreated the Mansfield–Loren photo
