The Archbishop of Genoa once said that although the Vatican opposed human cloning, "an exception might be made in the case of Sophia Loren".

The secret to Sophia Loren's beauty? Her unforgettable face? Certainly. Her talent? Absolutely. Her consumption of spaghetti? Well, Loren, 71, once famously said "Everything you see, I owe to spaghetti."

But apparently pasta is only part of her beauty regime. The Academy Award winning actress, who recently posed for a Pirelli calendar, also attributes her youthful appearance to taking baths in Virgin Olive Oil.

It's a great tip, but where can I buy a twenty-five-gallon drum of olive oil?
