Even as celebrities in Hollywood are gripped with the selfie fever, veteran actress Sophia Loren is not too keen on the trend.

Loren feels relieved she worked in an era when “skill and talent” garnered you respect rather than relentless self-promotion, reports

“In my time, an actress’ merit and skill was based on her talent. Now when people meet me, they pull out their phones to take pictures. I do not know much about social media, but it seems that that’s what makes people more famous,” she was quoted as saying by the New York Post.

“My era of Hollywood was much better – you were known for your skill and talent. I was very lucky to be a part of that time,” she added.

Loren also warned younger actresses against having invasive cosmetic surgery because they could ruin their natural beauty.

“These young girls really need to be more careful and selective of what they are doing to their bodies and their faces. 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,” the “Grumpier Old Men” star added.
