Sommer was discovered by director Vittorio de Sica while on holiday in Italy. He helped her land her first film roles, in Italian movies, in the late 1950's.

Sommer's longtime enemy and rival was fellow blonde bombshell Zsa Zsa Gabor. Apparently, their feud began when Sommer commented on Gabor's large behind, after which Gabor called Sommer "washed up" to the press. Sommer filed a libel lawsuit against Gabor for $2 million, and won, which consequentially forced Gabor into poverty. As you can imagine, Gabor never got over her bitter hatred for Sommer.
