James Bond part of cinema history: Monica Bellucci

Her casting in “Spectre” created a lot of buzz and for Italian beauty Monica Bellucci it was an opportunity to be a part of cinema history by playing a Bond girl.


Bellucci, 50, plays a mysterious seductress in the 24th James Bond movie. Bellucci was full of praise for the other Bond girl, French actress Lea Seydoux.

Talking about playing Lucia Sciarra in the movie, Bellucci said, “She is an Italian widow with secrets… James Bond is part of cinema history.

I respect all the James Bond girls as they were incredible actresses and now we have Lea Seydoux. She is very beautiful, very talented and she is a great Bond girl.”

In the Sam Mendes-directed movie, the 007 agent embarks on a rogue mission to Mexico City following a cryptic message from his past.

From Mexico, he travels to Rome, where he meets Lucia, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal.
