|Monica Bellucci Bio|
|Monica Bellucci was born September 30, 1968, in the village of Citta di Castello, Italy. Initially pursuing a career in law, Monica decided to start modeling in order to help pay for her tuition. But of course, the glamorous life of a model gradually tempted Monica away from her law studies. In 1988, she moved to Milan, Italy. There, she signed with Elite Model Management and found plenty of modeling work.|
By 1989, Monica was big in Paris, as well as across the Atlantic in New York. Although she had achieved huge success in so little time as a model (posing for Dolce & Gabbana and French Elle), Monica yearned for something more. In 1990, she made her debut in television, with a role in the film Vita coi fiqli along with Briganti (a.k.a Bandits: Love and Liberty) that same year. In 1991, Monica starred as Francesca in the film La Riffa, and made her American film debut as one of the three brides of Dracula, in Bram Stoker's Dracula, co-starring Winona Ryder.
But it was her role in the 1996 film, L'Appartement, that caused critics to start noticing Monica's talent. Her role as Lisa earned her a Cesar nomination (French equivalent of the Oscar) in the Most Promising Young Actress category. That sane year, Monica was cast in Come mi vuoi (a.k.a As You Want Me), as well as in Mauvais genre and Dobermann.
In 2000, Monica played the title role in Malèna, where she captivated moviegoers with her beauty and talent, and, in 2002, starred in Astérix & Obélix: Mission Cléopatre, as the seductive Cleopatra. Monica has hit the mainstream in America, featuring in the two sequels to the sci-fi blockbuster The Matrix - The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions (co-starring Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Hugo Weaving).
