Monica Bellucci covers the new issue of Vanity Fair Spain Magazine, and in the interview, she opens up a little about her relationship to her husband Vincent Cassel.
It was long rumored that she and her husband had an open marriage, but she lends some insight into this when she says, “I never get involved in the choice of his papers nor in mine. We are very independent, we live in different worlds: his friends are your friends, mine are different." It may just be a case of each of them living their own lives, and not just in regards to their romantic lives.
Bellucci also speaks about becoming an actress, saying, “I come from a very stable family of a small town. A child I felt very protected and very comfortable, but it was very boring. A life so simple, all the same, summer vacations, school winter. I had a fantastic education, very protective, and my attitude was, 'thank you for everything, but I need the opposite, to be free.'"
She’s not the first actress to have children in her 40s, and certainly won’t be her last, but Bellucci’s outlook on life and children is refreshingly honest and guilt-free. She says, “I decided to when I was an adult, not very young, because before I wanted to enjoy my experience as an actress without feeling guilty." Way to go, Monica.
