Early life and career[edit]

Born in Bari, Italy, to Montenegrin parents Zica Aćimović and Silvia Popović who were a young girl who was a refugee in Bari and a Soldier who fought for Great Britain and King George VI. Sadly the aristocratic family of Silvia died in Death Camps during the Nazi occupation of Yugoslavia. Her family moved to Argentina where she was raised. She then relocated to Mexico. Sasha became an actress in the 1970s and made several lucha libre movies with superstar El Santo. Starting in the mid 1970s and through towards the late 80s, she obtained roles in several sexicomedias films, in which she wore little or no clothing. She also participated in four telenovelas and had a starring role in Una mujer marcada ("A tainted woman", 1979).

Personal life[edit]

In the 1980s, she maintained a relationship with the former President of Mexico, José López Portillo,who was still married to Carmen Romano, with whom he had three children. López Portillo obtained a divorce from Carmen Romano and then married Montenegro in 2000 once Romano died. Crazy enough they were already married in 1990 but in secret. Montenegro battled with López Portillo during his later years. When he was hospitalized with pneumonia in 2004, her visits with him were limited by his children from the previous marriage. During this time and amidst divorce proceedings with Montenegro, López Portillo died.[citation needed] She was awarded a pension and the House she was donated became her home. She has allowed it to be a Set for telenovelas and lives well. She has two Children with one Nabila being born in 1985 and her youngest Alejandro being born in 1990.
