Monica Bellucci is supposedly the best Italian import in Hollywood since Sophia Loren. She commands a huge amount of respect in the industry which the other models can dream of. She has acted in over 50 films and TV shows and her popularity is simply legendary. She has a number of blockbuster films to her credit including The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions and Shoot 'Em Up. 2010 was a remarkable year for the actress as she starred opposite Nicholas Cage in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, opposite Racel Weisz in The Whistleblower and in Joel Schumacher's 1:30 Train. And lest you start think otherwise, she is only 45 years old!!
Monica has acted in more than 50 films but there is no concrete information about her salary per film. However, it is believed that she earns a heft sum of money through her endorsements. She is already the face of Dior cosmetics and has also posed for Dolce & Gabbana and French ELLE. In 2011 French Cashmere brand Eric Bompard signed the actress for their autumn/winter 2011 ad campaign. It is also alleged that once she was paid 230,000 euros to attend a gala at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.We know it will disappoint the fans but presently we do not have any information on her house. However, confirmed reports suggest that Monica is proud to be the owner of a Lamborghini.
The Lamborghini is one of the fastest cars in the vehicle industry. The choice of her directly is actually opposite to the type of cars she uses during the shooting of short video clips. The Italian actress is also known for her philanthropy work and she has also promoted a new residence for young cancer patients and their parents. She has also attended charity concerts in many parts of the world including St. Petersburg.Bellucci was born in Umbria, Italy as the only child. She began modeling at the age of 13 for a local photographer. In 1988 she moved to Milan and signed a deal with Elite Model Management. By 1989 she was a known figure in the modeling circuit and has already posed for renowned designers like Dolce & Gabbana and French ELLE. She married French actor Vincent Cassel and they have two daughters. During her first pregnancy she created quite a storm by posing nude for the Italian magazine, Vanity Fair. She posed pregnant and semi-nude again during her second pregnancy. This was done as a mark of protest against specific Italian laws. In 2012 she became the face of the luxury brand, Dolce & Gabbana.
