Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Statuesque Italian actress Monica Bellucci epitomized earthy sensuality in a wide variety of films in both Europe and America, including "Malena" (1997), "Brotherhood of the Wolf" (2001), "Passion of the Christ" (2004) and the sequels "The Matrix Reloaded" (2003) and "The Matrix Revolutions" (2003). However, Bellucci's talents extended far beyond her physical attributes, as evidenced by her skillful turns as tragic romantic figures in "L'Appartament" (1996), "Remember Me, My Love" (2003) and the disturbing "Irreversible" (2002). Like many European actresses, Hollywood seemed to have trouble finding quality projects for her, with such efforts as "Tears of the Sun" (2003) and "The Sorceror's Apprentice" (2010) paying more attention to her exotic looks than her abilities. Hollywood's mishandling appeared to not affect Bellucci in the least, as she continued to invest herself deeply in a wide variety of projects that displayed the many facets of her talents.
