Monica Bellucci is the Italian equivalent of the word “beautiful.” She isn’t, however, a frail starlet teetering on the brink of fame and starvation. Monica, an actress, mother, wife, and “lipstick addict,” tells Josephine Fairley that she is happiest when she indulges her desires.
‘Beauty must come from inside.’ It’s hard to look beautiful if you don’t feel well,’ Monica Bellucci explains.
You can know Monica Bellucci, 44, means it when she says, ‘I’ve never felt more comfortable in my skin,’ simply by looking at her — all Italian curves and glowing good health.
The Oscar winner and Cannes Film Festival judge has a gorgeous, bronzed complexion (genuine, not artificial), glittering 70% dark-chocolate eyes, and pouting lips that make her one of the sexiest women on the planet.
Monica is the latest in a long line of va-va-voom Italian cinema actresses that includes Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, and Monica Vitti, however she is not yet a household name outside of Italy and France. In short, she’s the antithesis to French actresses (who tend to appear like they’ve never eaten more than a corner of an éclair) and their carrot-stick-thin Hollywood counterparts (who are usually on a fad diet).
While you may not have seen her César-winning performance in L’appartement, her role as a prostitute in Shoot ‘Em Up (opposite Clive Owen), or even her unlikely debut as one of Dracula’s wives in Bram Stoker’s Dracula (back in 1992) at your local Odeon, you are most likely familiar with her from Dior’s make-up campaigns, for which she was recruited as the face in 2006, when she was in her 40s.
Monica has one of the nicest pouts in the industry, which makes her the ideal model for the debut of Dior’s revolutionary’serum’ anti-aging lipstick, Serum de Rouge, later this month, for which she will be featured in glossy magazines all over the globe.
She is not an ingénue, like Sharon Stone and Charlize Theron, who are also Dior celebrity ambassadors. ‘Thank goodness!’ Monica says, “I wouldn’t want to be 20 again for anything.” ‘Compared to when I was younger, I am considerably happy today.’ There are so many uncertainties that you must overcome in order to find who you are and who you will become. Today, I understand what I need and what I can live without.’
Having her four-year-old daughter Deva with her while shooting is at the top of her list of ‘needs’ (a nomadic existence that currently sees them living out of suitcases in New York).
‘Deva showed up at just the right time for me. I’ve done a lot in my life, been to a lot of places, and had a lot of fun – but when she arrived, I was ready to give her all she needed. When it comes to children, the most essential thing is to give them your attention. That is, in fact, all that counts. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t feel like I’m missing out if I don’t go out. I become tired being around by folks who smoke cigarettes and consume alcoholic beverages… And I’m no longer interested in attending premieres or having my picture taken on the red carpet. ‘I want to spend time with her.’
Monica also acknowledges that she no longer enjoys the party scene: ‘Kids steal your sleep!’ I didn’t sleep for two years and nine months because I was breast-feeding. But I’m so thrilled to be a mother that I’m not bothered by any of the sacrifices. They’re the methods you learn how to be a mother…’
She’s also trying to strike a balance between her need to be active and rushing about (she previously characterized herself as “like a shark, constantly moving; I need to move to remain alive”) and the realization that, at times, every woman has to be still and lazy in order to be healthy. ‘I suppose I’m half-shark and half-Mediterranean!’ That’s one of the things I like about my child: she finally allows me to slow down and relax.’
It’s still a ping-pong existence between Rome, Paris, New York, and London, but it’ll be decision time soon: ‘Deva will have to go to school in a year, and I’ll have to select where we’ll base ourselves,’ Monica jokes. ‘But not yet!’ says the narrator. I am, without a doubt, a lady of the last minute. I organized three different hospitals while I was pregnant because I couldn’t decide where I wanted to deliver my baby: London, Rome, or Paris. Finally, I chose to go to Rome, where I arrived on Monday and gave birth on Saturday.’
Monica intends to bring Deva along with her when she makes a film – but only with a teacher. ‘Though if we’re going to be away for a long, I may attempt to locate a lycée where she can obtain the same education.’ Deva is already fluent in Italian and French, her parents’ native tongues, as well as English. ‘She’s a breeze to work with. She travels so much that she can sleep anywhere — she’s like a nomad baby. Even when the environment changes, her mother and father are always her rock…’
Intriguingly (and oh-so-continentally), Monica doesn’t need to be in the pocket of her husband, gorgeous French actor Vincent Cassel. Despite parts in English-language films like as Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, he is arguably best known in the UK for his long-running Renault Clio commercials as Nicole’s lover (which probably irritates the hell out of him).
They’ve been married since 1999 and have collaborated on numerous films, including L’appartement and the very polarizing Irreversible, in which Monica was subjected to a violent ten-minute rape scene (she forced Vincent to leave the set at that time in case he assaulted the actor who was ‘rapping’ her).
‘Vincent is an outstanding parent. We try to see each other as frequently as possible, but he’s usually shooting or I’m shooting. We prefer to work for a bit and then go someplace as a family, which is one of the beautiful things about our line of work.’
She’s been cited as stating she wasn’t interested the first time they met. ‘But, for both of us, it was attraction and repulsion at the same moment,’ she explains. ‘At first, we didn’t realize there was an attraction; we both assumed it was more repulsion.’ But then we got the opportunity to learn more about one other, and it was all attraction!’ (That throaty, seductive chuckle.)
‘I find it exciting not to be with someone all of the time; you don’t get used to them or take them for granted.’ We’re polar opposites. But it operates at the same time.’ She aspires to have a second kid. ‘However, a kid arrives when he or she wishes. You can make a movie, but you can’t make a baby.’
Monica’s childhood dream was to be a movie star – ‘I grew up admiring those goddesses: Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Claudia Cardinale, Anna Magnani’ – but she never worked out how to go from the modest Umbrian hamlet of Città di Castello where she was born to the big screen. A career as a lawyer seemed to be more feasible. A friend led her to various modeling agencies in Milan when she was at university in Perugia. When it sashayed in, they realized it was a wonderful thing, and she was immediately signed.
Monica now considers herself fortunate, despite the fact that she first believed modeling was merely a method to supplement her student money. ‘I was under the impression that I could work and study at the same time.’ But then I had to leave university because I needed to travel for employment.’
‘Being a lawyer was too dull for me – for my nature,’ she admits now. The law’s loss is cinema’s gain: Monica was discovered in a magazine and cast in the film Vita Coi Figli by Italian filmmaker Dino Ris. Francis Ford Coppola attempted the same thing two years later, casting Monica as one of Dracula’s (topless) brides.
‘I like doing beautiful, bold films in which I portray profound, feminine characters with great emotions,’ she explains. She recently appeared in Rebecca Miller’s film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee opposite Robin Wright Penn, Julianne Moore, Winona Ryder, and Keanu Reeves. Monica is presently shooting The Sorcerer’s Apprentice for Disney, starring Nicolas Cage — somewhat unusual choice for an actress who has played some contentious characters, like Mary Magdalene in The Passion of Christ, and spent a lot of time on-screen without her makeup on.
Monica recognizes her fortunate fortune in being able to work in the United States (unlike many continental actors who never have the chance), but she feels much more at ease on this side of the Atlantic. In fact, England is the only location where she can completely unwind. ‘I spend a lot of time in London and feel completely at ease there. I may be completely anonymous and as free as a bird. I like going to the park with my “baby,” as well as going shopping with my pals.’
She avoids ‘jet-set VIP places’ when she goes on vacation, preferring to be barefoot on a beach in a wild location, such as a forgotten corner of Brazil or Puglia in Southern Italy. ‘I like lying around in the sun and being lazy.’ I know it’s harmful for my skin, but I can’t get enough of it!’
Monica is inherently Italian, despite her air-miles lifestyle. ‘I am a family person, which is very Italian: I come from a large, powerful family, and I like spending time with them. And my passion for cuisine is unmistakably Italian! I eat anything, but my favorite cuisine is Italian. My daughter is one of them. Pasta and parmigiano are her favorite foods.’
She is not one of those actresses that deprives herself of food. ‘If I have to reduce weight for a job, I can do it: I eat meat, fish, and vegetables, and I lose weight quickly.’ But there are occasions when I have to acquire weight for a job, and I can assure you that I like it!’ She’s also not likely to be seen on a treadmill anytime soon. ‘With my way of life, it’s impossible.’ Go up at 5 a.m. to get to the gym and be on set by 6 a.m.? Impossible! So instead of going to the gym, I wear black,’ she says with a grin. ‘Much more practical and enjoyable.’
What about beauty tips? She admits, ‘I don’t have any.’ ‘It needs to originate from inside.’ It’s hard to look nice if you don’t feel good — not only for girls, but also for women with a life and experiences.’
She’s a lipstick addict, just like the rest of us. ‘I have a plethora of them. Mostly nudes and neutrals. But every now and then, I’ll put on a traditional red, and it immediately reminds me of my mother and grandmother, who, even as a very old lady, would to put on red lipstick before going to church. For me, it is such a lovely picture because it shows that she still had her femininity and was taking care of herself. I aspire to be like that.’
With a pout that rivals Angelina Jolie’s in terms of volume, Monica’s skincare standards are understandably high: ‘Because I have large lips that dry out quickly, I have to keep them moisturized.’ The importance of the lips cannot be overstated. You communicate with your mouth, eat with it, kiss with it…’
Spoken, of course, like a true Italian – one who’s refreshingly at ease in her sexy, tanned, utterly bellissima and not-too-skinny skin. Honestly, she’s enough to make anyone throw their low-calorie meal-replacement milkshake down the sink, pick up the nearest bowl of spaghetti carbonara, pour a glass of chianti and wallow in la dolce vita.
Sexiest Images of Megan Fox
The secret to Megan Fox’s sexiest looks is bodycon dresses, leather, and crop tops.
Since the early 2000s, when Megan Fox first appeared on the scene, she has been a Hollywood bombshell. Totaly sexiest women in whole Hollywood. She flaunts her seductive looks on Instagram when she’s not preoccupied with being a member of one of the most popular celebrity couples right now. L’OFFICIEL looks at some of Megan Fox’s sexiest outfits, including everything from corsets to nude dresses.
Take a look at these images of Megan Fox:
Megan Fox’s Most Sexy Images Ever: Red Carpets, Date Nights, and More
One of the hottest ladies in Hollywood, Megan Fox understands just how to capitalize on her appeal when she walks the red carpet or goes on a date. The celebrity, who was born on May 16, 1986, popularized lingerie-inspired designs by frequently wearing lacy bralettes, corsets, and strappy dresses. The bombshell lady became a brand ambassador for the lingerie company Frederick’s of Hollywood and has since frequently posed in seductive outfits for the designer’s underwear advertisements.
Megan Fox is SEXY!
Megan looked stunning in a sheer, lacy bodysuit from the lingerie line when she made an appearance at a Forever 21 event in March 2018 to promote the lingerie partnership between the fast-fashion company and Frederick’s. She wore the undergarment item with black Christian Louboutin shoes and ribbon-belted Miaou jeans.

Look at Megan Fox: Fabulous 1970s Outfit!
Megan Fox is fabulous. She just posted several images of herself on Instagram wearing a costume with a 1970s theme that she appears to be about to burst out of.
Megan Fox is back with another sexy and colorful dress and a caption that goes with it, proving that she has a great sense of humor. The actress shared a number of images of herself wearing a very obvious 1970s ensemble on her Instagram feed. She is wearing a shirt that is quite tight on her, trendy slacks that barely contain her legs, and this combination normally garners her a ton of attention on social media.
The only thing that people notice about Megan Fox, according to her amusing caption, is how brilliant she is, which is ironic given that she looks like she’s about to burst out of her clothing. Apart from her attractive clothing, her cleverness in delivering such a clever caption was unquestionably what caught our attention right immediately. The aforementioned post has received almost 2.1 million likes and 7,000 comments, demonstrating how popular Fox’s intelligence and attire were.
Megan Fox is currently as busy as ever, with the release of three new films, despite almost bursting out of her own clothes. In her debut film, Johnny & Clyde, a parody of Bonnie & Clyde, Fox plays a serial killer who has fallen in love with her accomplice in crime. Although the movie is finished, a release date has not yet been set.
The Expendables 4, the concluding installment in Sylvester Stallone’s enduring action star ensemble series, has also wrapped up filming for Megan Fox’s part. Along with many others, Fox joins Stallone, Jason Statham, 50 Cent, Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Randy Couture, and Andy Garcia. Although we are unsure of the exact release date because the film is still in post-production, we believe it will be a summer blockbuster. The movie has a 2023 release date window.
Following those two more mature films, Megan Fox will shift her focus to a family-friendly project by providing the voice of the animated movie Naya Legend of the Golden Dolphin. The family-friendly film has quite a large cast, including Fox, Kate Winslet, Elliot Page, and Gerard Butler, even though it may not be on everyone’s radar. Also scheduled for release in 2023 is this film.
No matter what she wears and shares on social media, fabulous Megan Fox always grabs attention. She also frequently makes news with her fiancé, Machine Gun Kelly. In all honesty, we applaud her for always appearing to be able to bear the spotlight with dignity because we know she must deal with lots of detractors on a regular basis, even if she may not give them the attention they need.
Megan Fox has an impressive 20.6 million Instagram followers, which may be due to the fact that she consistently shares pictures of herself wearing stylish and attractive attire or because her captions are pretty funny. In any case, she looks stunning as usual, despite the fact that the gown she is wearing above appears to be about to come undone.
