Anna Magnani Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Anna Magnani (Italian pronunciation: [?anna ma???a?ni]; 7 March 1908 – 26 September 1973) was an Italian stage and film actress. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress, along with four other international awards, for her portrayal of a Sicilian widow in The Rose Tattoo.Born in Rome, she worked her way through Rome's Academy of Dramatic Art by singing at night clubs. During her career, her only child was stricken by polio when he was 18 months old and remained crippled.She was referred to as "La Lupa," the "perennial toast of Rome" and a "living she-wolf symbol" of the cinema. Time magazine described her personality as "fiery", and drama critic Harold Clurman said her acting was "volcanic". In the realm of Italian cinema, she was "passionate, fearless, and exciting," an actress that film historian Barry Monush calls "the volcanic earth mother of all Italian cinema." Director Roberto Rossellini called her "the greatest acting genius since Eleonora Duse". Playwright Tennessee Williams became an admirer of her acting and wrote The Rose Tattoo specifically for her to star in, a role for which she received her first Oscar in 1955.After meeting director Goffredo Alessandrini she received her first screen role in La cieca di Sorrento (The Blind Woman of Sorrento) (1934) and later achieved international fame in Rossellini's Rome, Open City (1945), considered the first significant movie to launch the Italian neorealism movement in cinema. As an actress she became recognized for her dynamic and forceful portrayals of "earthy lower-class women" in such films as The Miracle (1948), Bellissima (1951), The Rose Tattoo (1955), The Fugitive Kind (1960), with Marlon Brando and directed by Sidney Lumet, and Mamma Roma (1962). As early as 1950, Life magazine had already stated that Magnani was "one of the most impressive actresses since Garbo".

3Is one of 3 Italian actors to have won an Academy Award; the others are Sophia Loren and Roberto Benigni.
4As Vittorio De Sica was very eager to work with her, he originally cast her as Cesira in Two Women (1960), with 25-year-old Sophia Loren playing her shy 13-year-old daughter, Rosetta. However Magnani felt that the age gap between Loren and her character was too big to be overlooked and suggested that she play Cesira instead, otherwise the film would have been unconvincing. Loren then went on to play Cesira (with 12-year-old Eleonora Brown in the role of Rosetta) and won an Academy Award for her performance.
5Helen Mirren named Anna as her acting idol.
6Burt Lancaster considered Magnani the greatest actress he ever worked with.
7She and Roberto Rossellini always remained friends.
8She was inconsolable after discovering she had pancreatic cancer. Her son Luca and director Roberto Rossellini, her one-time director and paramour, were at her beside at the time of her death in 1973. She was laid to rest in the Rossellini family vault.
9A well-known hypochondriac, she constantly kept a thermometer close by in order to check her temperature.
10Tennessee Williams wrote his play "The Rose Tattoo" with Anna in mind. She was offered the lead but turned it down because she felt her command of the English language was not strong enough for the demanding role of Serafina Delle Rose. Maureen Stapleton was critically acclaimed for her stage role. Anna, however, did accept the screen version when it was offered and won the Oscar, Golden Globe and New York Film Critics awards, among others.
11Had an extremely tempestuous relationship with Roberto Rossellini beginning in 1944 and ended when he deserted her for Ingrid Bergman. She was known to have hurled crockery at him during their volatile times. In describing her, he reportedly stated that, "She was born carrying her liver in her teeth".
12Her son, Luca, the product of a torrid affair with actor Massimo Serato, was a victim of infantile polio and Anna sent him to a Swiss clinic for treatments. Although he could walk with braces, most of his life was spent in a wheelchair. She was awarded Italy's Golden Violet Award as an exemplary mother for her devotion.
13Her 1933 marriage to director Goffredo Alessandrini ended in 1940 but it was until 1950 that the marriage was annulled.
14Was extremely superstitious and claimed she was clairvoyant. She also smoked cigars.
15Sent to a convent school at the age of 7 where she learned French. She also was brought up musically, had a deep singing voice and could play the piano and guitar.
16Her Italian mother Marina was a seamstress. Her father was Egyptian. While she briefly lived in Egypt as an infant she was raised by her grandparents in Rome, where she was born.
17Is portrayed by Lina Sastri in Celluloide (1996)
18Tennessee Williams wrote the role of Serafina in his play, The Rose Tattoo, for Anna, but her English skills were too limited to appear in the 1951 Broadway production. Instead, Maureen Stapleton played the role to great acclaim. Stapleton also would originate the role of Lady Torrance in Williams' Orpheus Descending, a role Magnani also would later play on film.
19Grandmother of Italian actress Olivia Magnani.
20Convinced that she would never win the Oscar for The Rose Tattoo (1955), she didn't attend the ceremony. The reporter who woke her out of a sound sleep in Rome to give her the news had a difficult time convincing her he wasn't kidding. "You're lying," Magnini supposedly said. "If this is a joke, I'll kill you!".
21Her friendship with Tennessee Williams was the subject of an Off-Broadway play in New York, Roman Nights, by Franco D'Alessandro, which starred Franca Barchiesi as Magnani and Roy Miller as Williams. A film adaptation is in the works.
22Her beloved son Luca was the result of a brief affair with Italian matinée idol Massimo Serato.
23Tennessee Williams, after meeting her, said, "I never saw a more beautiful woman, enormous eyes, skin the color of Devonshire cream.".
