Hundreds of fans waited Tuesday at a Toronto bookstore to meet legendary movie actress Sophia Loren, reports the Canadian press. Loren was in town promoting her new cookbook, ``Sophia Loren's Recipes and Memories.'' Loren, 64, spent more than an hour dazzling adoring fans of all ages, some of whom had waited more than two hours just for a glimpse, a few words, and an autograph. Loren cooks at least one meal for cast and crew on movie sets. ``That's usually about 70 people,'' she said. ``I often made spaghetti Bolognese or pasta with matriciana sauce.''
