Sophia Loren is finally telling the story of her life.

And what a story.

The Oscar-winning Italian actress has a deal with Atria Books for the memoir, “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow: My Life as a Fairy Tale.” The publisher announced that the book is scheduled for Dec. 2. The 79-year-old Loren is expected to write about her rise from poverty during World War II to international stardom, sharing her thoughts on Cary Grant, Richard Burton and her husband, Carlo Ponti, among others.

Loren’s movies include “Marriage Italian Style,” “Houseboat” and “Two Women,” for which she won an Academy Award in 1961.

Actor Wilford Brimley is selling his Wyoming ranch, with an asking price of $1.25 million.

The 79-year-old star of “Cocoon” tells The Wall Street Journal he is getting on in years and it’s time for him to do something else.

Brimley has owned the 276-acre ranch near Greybull, Wyoming, for about seven years. Hall and Hall agent Randy Shelton says it includes a three-bedroom house and a two-bedroom log cabin.

Brimley never lived on the property, but used the cabin as a guesthouse.

Brimley is a native of Utah and worked as a ranch hand and blacksmith before becoming an actor.
