I thought I might die, says Sophia.

Actress Sophia Loren has spoken of the time she thought she was "going to die''.

The actress, aged 64, is recovering from heart problems a few months ago.

She said in an interview in the United States she was doing better now and scoffed at talk of retirement.

After feeling ill on a flight from Geneva to New York in August, the Italian-born actress needed medical treatment for an irregular heartbeat.

She said: ``Now I have to be careful, because I want to enjoy my family for a long time.

"I want to enjoy my life for a long time.''

Although she says her health problems were due to stress from over working, she said retirement was not for her.

``Retire? No, never. I'll go on and on.''

She has just published Recipes and Memories, a collection of Italian recipes accompanied by her recollections.

And asked what is it about her that captivates so many men, she said: ``I always liked to seduce and to be seduced.''
