Monica Bellucci recently turned 58. We dedicate this article to her incredible life story.
Every time we hear the name Monica Bellucci, we are reminded of her natural, pure beauty.
We may ask ourselves: “How is it possible that someone like her ages like a fine wine? How come some people get wrinkles and look old, but her wrinkles make her looks better every single day?”
It’s true that Monica Bellucci did everything she wanted in her life. She fulfilled all of her wishes.
Let’s start at the beginning
Monica Anna Maria Bellucci, born 30 September 1964, is an Italian actress and model. She began her career as a fashion model, modelling for Dolce & Gabbana and Dior, before making a transition to Italian films and later American and French films.
It’s been said that her parents kept her hidden as much as they could because her stunning beauty can turn into a curse for her.
Monica Bellucci began modelling at age 13 by posing for a local photo enthusiast. In 1988, Bellucci left the Faculty of Law at the University of Perugia, and moved to one of Europe’s fashion centers, Milan, where she signed with Elite Model Management with the aid of model agent Piero Piazzi.
By 1989, she was becoming prominent as a fashion model in Paris and across the Atlantic, in New York City. She posed for Dolce & Gabbana and French Elle, among others. In that year, Bellucci made the transition to acting and began taking acting classes.
She made her film debut in Francesco Laudadio’s Italian comedy La Riffa (1991). The following year she played a Bride of Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola’s gothic horror romance film Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992).
She made stunning movies in Hollywood, as well as European movies.
One of her notable appearances was Malèna Scordia in the Giuseppe Tornatore’s acclaimed Italian romantic drama Malèna (2000).
For decades, the Bond franchise has featured young and sultry Bond girls. In fact, when Monica Bellucci first auditioned to be a Bond girl was in 1997’s for the sequel “Tomorrow Never Dies,” she was about 33 years of age, but lost out to American actress Teri Hatcher.
She said: “When I first met Sam Mendes (James Bond director) I was a bit confused and said to him, ‘I’m 50 years old. What am I going to do at 50 in a Bond film?”
When the women of the next 007 film, Spectre, were revealed, it included Umbrian-born Italian actress and model Monica Bellucci is the oldest to ever fill the role.
It took Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci 18 years to get married, but they have decided to split up. This is the love that Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel have made. They were together from 1996 to 2013. They even got married and had two kids: Deva and Léonie.
According to her opinion, she was never afraid to do things at the right time. That’s how she gave birth to her beautiful daughters when she was 39 and 45 years old. She knows that she has sex appeal with her natural beauty to attract men, but she’s also adored by many women around the world.
Bellucci eschews rigorous workouts and strict diets, instead preferring wine and pasta and the occasional Pilates session. Still, she gets in enough exercise and diets “a bit” when she has to work, all while keeping it reasonable.
“I am not obsessed. I’ve always been a curvy woman, never so skinny, that’s my nature. And I want to get old in a peaceful way,” she says. “When you are 50 or 60 you don’t have the same needs as when you are 20. You change, like when your baby comes into the room, you see that the first thing is her. We come in second. This gives us another perspective.”
