56-year-old Monica Bellucci has become the star of the cover of the new issue of Madame Figaro magazine. On her Instagram, the actress shared, apparently, her most beloved shots from the photoshoot.
In one of the photos by Sabine Villard, Monica poses in a white mesh Dior dress, sitting in an armchair. Another shot was already taken in the fresh air, and it is simply impossible not to recharge the summer mood from it. Looking forward to posing in a sunlit garden, as Monica did in a Lanvin floral dress.
However, other shots of the shooting, which have already been distributed on the network by the fans of the actress, are unlikely to leave indifferent.
Monica, who is now busy filming a new film in Italy, found time for an interview with the publication and talked a little about the new project.
This is my first children’s film, and I have a lot of fun on the set, – admitted Bellucci.
Recall that she plays “a benevolent witch who saves children” (as Monica herself described the heroine) in the new film “The Witch Comes at Night 2”.
The actress also said that she could not even dream of such a long and successful film career.
When I started, at the age of 25, I could not even imagine that I would be on the set and when I would be 50, she said.
And the star’s schedule is very tight – even in 2020, when many filming stopped due to the pandemic, Monica was in great demand. So, she plays the cult Swedish actress Anita Ekberg (everyone knows her from the film “La Dolce Vita”), who is one of the stars of the golden age of Italian cinema, in the film “Girl in the Fountain” by Antonzhiulio Panizzi. Among her current projects are the series L’Amour flou, created by Canal +, as well as the film Les Fantasmes of brothers David and Stefan Fonkinos, where Carole Bouquet became her partner on the set.
As soon as the theaters reopen, Bellucci will resume her participation in the play “Callas,” directed by Tom Wolf, where she reads the personal letters of the Greek opera diva on stage alone.
The actress also said that her two daughters, 16-year-old Virgo and 11-year-old Leonie, are her absolute priority in life – motherhood allowed her to open herself up from a new perspective.
But be careful. This is not the same for all women. I have many friends who do not have children. They no less vividly express their femininity, – said Monica.
Recall that Virgo is actively following in the footsteps of her mother, who began her career working as a model. Now the eldest daughter of Monica and Vincent Cassel has been filming a lot for glossy magazines and collaborates with the Dolce & Gabbana brand, of which Bellucci is a longtime muse.
