Monica Bellucci Talks Being a Bond Girl Aged 51: “True Sexiness is in the Mind”


Monica is four years older than Daniel and appears as the latest Bond girl in the new film ‘Spectre’. Commenting on being an older woman in the film, Monica explains that age doesn’t matter when it comes to feeling attracted to someone and it’s all about having the right chemistry:

“We should not be worried about age when it comes to love and attraction. Just as younger women are attracted to older men, it shouldn’t be considered strange that men in their 20s and 30s are drawn to older women. It’s the chemistry and energy between men and women that counts…True sexiness is in the mind, the imagination, not in the age of the body…It’s important to show that a woman at 50 can be just as interesting and attractive as a woman who is 30.”

She previously had a relationship with French actor Vincent Cassel but is now single with two daughters. Commenting on not being in a relationship, Monica says that it’s a new experience for her but it is making her feel “alive” and she’s finding it interesting:

“It’s something I’d really never experienced before. I feel very alive. The single woman is a free woman, and being single does not mean being alone – it means being free to have a relationship or not. This can be scary, but it’s also very interesting. Remember it’s not that long ago that women only existed in terms of their ­relationships to men.”

The stunning actress reveals she rarely works out at the gym and also enjoys food. She isn’t too hung up on being skinny:

“I’m just too lazy. I never go to the gym. And I love to eat chocolate and pasta. I’m not obsessed with being skinny. I don’t stress myself about my looks. I love to laugh. I like being able to lead an interesting life.”
