For Monica Bellucci, “women should love their femininity”. Interview & photo shoots…

9. Monica Bellucci

How does it feel to be – as the English say – “on the wrong side of 40”?
It’s about starting a new phase after having devoted the last ten years to my two daughters ( Deva, 9 years old, and Léonie, 3 years old, editor’s note ). I made a sort of inner journey which gave me a lot of strength.

The side effects of “motherhood”?
(She bursts out laughing.) Be careful, if someone launches me on this subject, I immediately go on automatic pilot! I become an inexhaustible mill on the joys of motherhood… I am a real Italian mamma ! But I can also be very pragmatic.
