Striking, raven-haired Monica Bellucci is a worldwide known sex symbol, model and actress. Born on September 30, 1964 in Umbria, Italy, she started modeling to pay her study at the University, but it appeared she liked the first more. In 80s Bellucci was one of the most prominent models known in Italy, France and USA. She posed for Elle magazine and her naked pictures were seen in InStyle, GQ, Maxim and Vanity Fair. Bellucci is one of few, who speaks Aramaic, also known as the language of divine worship. This ability stood in good stead in her acting career later. Except Italian, she also speaks Spanish semi-fluently and French and English fluently, as a result she was easy cast for an English-language movie Dracula co-starring Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves and Anthony Hopkins. Overall, she had speaking parts in each of these languages. Year 2000 was the breaking one for Bellucci as she starred in Malena, a movie that brought her fame and popularity especially among man's audience as they enjoyed Bellucci's nude scenes. In two years Monica starred in Irreversible, again acting fully naked in some episodes (she was playfully making love in bed). Bellucci's popularity sky-rocketed after she starred in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, where she played alongside Laurence Fishburne, Keanu Reeves, Jada Pinkett and Carrie Anne Moss. In 2004 Bellucci switched gears even more when she played Mary Magdelene part in The Passion of the Christ. Her off-stage life is noting but a blessing. She is a wife of her former co-star Vincent Cassel and a caring mother of her daughter Deva, born in 2004. While Bellucci was pregnant she posed naked for Italian magazine Vanity Fair. It was her protest against law in Italy, according to which it is forbidden to use donor sperm.
