Monica Ana Marie Bellucci was born in 1964 in Umbria, Italy. Bellucci pursued a legal profession while modeling for extra money. Over time, Bellucci's modeling career replaced her legal pursuits and she was hired in 1988 by Elite Model Management in Milan, Italy.
Several years later as Bellucci's modeling career exploded she ventured into acting. In 1990, Monica B' pursued acting on Italian TV then she made her American film debut in 1992 in Bram Stokers Dracula. Monica Bellucci was one of Dracula's Brides, she tryed to seduce Keanu Reeves (Jonathan Harker) by tempting him with her seductive ways. Bram Stoker's Dracula was a success and grossed over $80 million at the box office. Of course, the success of the movie helped Belluci's acting career in America. Since then, Bellucci has appeared in dozens of films - her most famous role to date is as Persophone in Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions produced in 2003.
Monica Bellucci's sex symbol status skyrocketed when she was ranked #6 in Maxims '50's Sexiest Women in 1999 and #9 in Maxim's '100 Sexiest Women in 2002.
Her private life is more tame than her acting roles. Bellucci is romantically linked to Vincent Cassel and she recently gave birth to their daughter Leonie in 2010.
Monica Bellucci appeared in the Whistleblower in 2010 and will star in Manuale d'amore 3, Guardian of the Harem in 2011 and Rhinos Season in 2012. Des gens qui s'embrassent 2013, Le meraviglie 2013, On the Milky Road 2014.
My favorite quote from Monica Bellucci is:
"My body is so important to me... my face, my arms, my legs, my hands, my eyes, everything. I use everything I have..."
