Veteran actress Sophia Loren is urging today's stars to be more discreet about their private lives if they want to earn respect.

Loren, married to producer Carlo Ponti hates it when actors and singers discuss their antics with magazines and tabloids.

She says, "In our business, if you're not discreet and if you just splash everything out - your life and your feelings - then it's really terrible.

"I think that in our lives, when you are an actor, when you are a producer, you have to be very discreet about your personal life and you have to be closed in and in harmony - in affection and in everything."
