Monica Bellucci's BiographyMonica Bellucci is a world-renowned Italian actress who frequently works in Hollywood, and a model. For many, Monica embodies true beauty and femininity.
ChildhoodMonica Bellucci's parents had a complex fate. Her father is Pasquale Bellucci and mother is Brunella Briganti.
Modeling CareerAt the age of 16, the girl was already walking the runway at Liceo Classico. Monica enjoyed transforming into glamorous looks and catching the admiring glances of photographers, and she gave up her childhood dream of a career in law.
In 1988, 24-year-old Monica moved to Milan, where she signed a contract with Elite Model Management. A year later, Monica Bellucci was well-known among the fashion industry representatives in New York and Paris.
Acting CareerMonica Bellucci achieved considerable success in the modeling business, but she didn't want to stop there. Her acting debut occurred in 1990 in Italian cinema. Her first roles included parts in the films "Vita coi figli," "La Riffa."
In 2020, the actress starred in several more films. Among them - "The Man Who Sold His Skin". Also in 2020, fans of early films with Bellucci had the opportunity to look at a familiar story from a new angle - Gaspar Noé re-edited the drama "Irreversible", bringing the narration into chronological order.
Monica Bellucci's Personal LifeFamous Italian actress Monica Bellucci has only had relationships with her fellow workers in the industry. Initially, she was briefly married to Argentine photographer Claudio Basso, followed by an engagement to Italian actor Nicola Farron.
When I first met Vincent, there was a spark between us. Initially, we thought we felt animosity toward each other, but as we got to know each other better, we realized it was magical attraction. I don't know how we ended up together. We didn't choose who we wanted to be with; it just happened.Nevertheless, the couple did not move in together – Monica needed her personal space and independence. Even several years after their wedding, they continued to live separately – he in France, and she in Italy. The actress explained this by her unwillingness to dive into family routine.
Monica Bellucci NowIn 2022, Monica was seen in the role of a mafia boss named Bianca in the crime comedy "Mafia Mamma". She was accompanied on set by Toni Collette, who played her character's protege. Bellucci, who rarely appears in comedy films, commented on her choice as follows:
...I've done few comedies in my career. I grew up on mafia movies, like many of my peers in Italy: 'Once Upon a Time in America', 'Goodfellas', and 'The Godfather'. But this was really something completely new - a mafia comedy with a feminine twist. We live in a society dominated by men, so these women have to defend themselves. Toni - she's fantastic. I'm so glad I had the chance to work with her.Shortly after, Bellucci received another offer to star in a genre not too familiar to her. Tim Burton cast his beloved in the role of Beetlejuice's wife in his new film "Beetlejuice 2", a sequel to his 1988 movie.
