Sophia Loren to honour Disney with her voice in 'Cars 2'

June 16, 2011 - New York

Sophia Loren has revealed that her inclusion in the voice cast of Disney-Pixar's 'Cars 2' would help her honour the late Walt Disney.

The Neapolitan beauty, who will be voicing the character of Mama Topolino, also said that she had come aboard to impress her grandkids.

"I was in Los Angeles many years ago to receive an award," the New York Post quoted 76-year-old Loren as saying.

"I was terribly nervous, and very young, and I ran into Mr. Disney," she recalled.

"It was an unforgettable evening. We talked and he helped me with my jitters . . . This is my way of honouring Disney," she added.
