Film critics are quick to compare Monica Bellucci to previous Italian beauties, but she is her own brand of sultry icon. Monica's classic and elegant good looks are matched only by an equally sophisticated and refined fashion sense. She is beauty exemplified, and without a doubt one of the most beautiful women in the world. Monica has the body of a goddess, the eyes of a princess, and the sultry lips of a siren. She is model-turned-actress that has generated a lot of Oscar buzz for her.
With over 20 movies to her credit she isn't a novice to film, unfortunately her fame comes from Italian cinema. Monica has not benefited from the Hollywood marketing machine that movie studios are capable of. She has had only limited exposure in large American audiances except for appearing in "Dracula" with
Keanu Reeves and "Under Suspicion" with Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman.
Although the model-turned-actress has reached incredible heights in both streams of her career, she still dreams of working with the legendary Robert De Niro. Critics are quick to compare Monica Bellucci to previous Italian beauties, but she has her own brand of sensual style. With roles as a topless vampire in "Dracula", and her recent role as a sci-fi vixen in the Matrix sequels, Monica has proven to be a bold blend of a seductive actress and a talented star.
