Monica BellucciBorn: 30-Sep-1964 [1]
Birthplace: Citta di Castello, Perugia, Italy

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor, Model

Nationality: Italy
Executive summary: L'Appartement

Monica Bellucci thought she would be an attorney, but dropped out of the University of Perugia when a modelling career beckoned. After several years as a high-profile model, she began acting in Italian movies. She met her husband, French actor Vincent Cassel, when they co-starred in L'Appartement, and they have often worked together since. She still works as a model, and endorses Sicily perfume.

In American movies, she played one of Dracula's topless brides in Coppola's Dracula, the consort Persephone in the last two Matrix movies, and Mary Magdalene in Mel Gibson's bloody Passion of the Christ.


[1] Bellucci herself claimed she was born in 1969 in an interview with The Times (30 October 2005), but in 2003 two Italian media outlets discredited her claim. Television network TG5 interviewed several of her childhood friends for a documentary, all of whom testified she was born in 1964. TG5 also uncovered a school certificate from June 1978, which gave her age as 13 years. Entertainment website Tiscali.it obtained a copy of her birth registration from the Perugina Registry Office, which gave her birth date as 30 September 1964.
