Surely, at some point in your life, you’ve been asked the question: “If you could have one superpower, what would it be?” Most people automatically go for their first impulse—flight. Who wouldn’t want to go wherever they wanted, whenever they wanted? Another impulsive answer is invisibility. That’s a more voyeuristic and sneaky power that sounds fun. Other typical answers include super strength, psychic abilities, immortality, and many more.
But, let’s get real. Most of the aforementioned powers would be freakish in the real world. You would become a circus act and possibly even get probed by dozens of scientists. Let’s go under the radar here for a moment and consider a natural power. How about the ability to speak any language?
This leads us to the subject of our article, the beautiful, voluptuous, Italian actress Monica Bellucci. Yeah, she’s super hot, and she can also speak multiple languages. Much of her films are foreign, and we really wish we could understand her without bothering to read the subtitles. Bellucci is incredibly hot, and she’s not afraid to show it all off. She has thousands of scandalous images out there. You have known her since her Matrix days, to her Bond girl role in Spectre, and more. She’s totally gorgeous, and here are 15 of her hottest pics ever.
15 Black Bikini
There are many wonderful things to look at in this black-and-white photo. Try to look past the necklace, which seems to be made of soda pop can tabs. You probably didn’t even notice that jewelry, right? You were busy gazing into this actress’ gorgeous, dark brown eyes. Either that or you were trying to catch a glimpse of her chest, concealed beneath a skimpy string bikini. Another piece of jewelry includes the word “Surf.” Although most people go to Italy to view the Roman ruins or the Vatican, there is also a modest amount of surfing available. The Mediterranean Sea is generally pretty calm, but better waves can be found in the winter months. Places like Varazze, near the French Riviera, even shine lights for surfing at night. However, Bellucci was born in the Umbria region, which is landlocked.
14 Skin And Fur
Many people would be offended by this shot, but probably not the people who clicked on this article. Most of you who clicked are too busy looking at the skin of beautiful Bellucci to even notice that she is wearing a fur coat. Others, however, are haters of the fur industry. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) would scold Bellucci for taking this photo. After all, there are so many other materials that she could use to cover up her top with. Bellucci looks young in this pic, so maybe it was taken before PETA took over Hollywood. Famous stars like Olivia Munn, Khloe Kardashian, Pamela Anderson, and more have bared all to promote the PETA cause. Nowadays, if you wear fur, you are totally insensitive, or perhaps you’re just an Italian hottie who doesn’t give a crap about American causes.
13 Nothing But Heels
Next up is a hot shot of Bellucci laying in bed with nothing but some red pumps on her feet. There is also a black blanket covering up her back side, but our imaginations can easily remove that obstruction from view. Our imaginations can also picture ourselves laying right next to her and making her very happy. There is no doubt that Bellucci has that bedroom appeal that is impossible to ignore. Everything about this woman seems to exude sensuality. The hot pictures on this list are mostly vintage ones. After all, the actress is 52 years old now, but she is still a very attractive woman. She still stops traffic just walking down the street. Also, she has grown old gracefully, not succumbing to pressures of Hollywood and the temptation of its plastic surgery trends.
12 In The Water
We chose the American version for this shot. In the Italian, or generally European version, Bellucci appears completely bare from the waist up. She has no qualms about going buff. In fact, she seems to prefer it. Many countries don’t really care about the woman’s voluptuous upper half. They aren’t so prudish with female anatomy. Why should women have to hide their chests while men can bare theirs? If you don’t believe it, just go to the French Riviera on your next vacation. You’ll be shocked and pleased to see women hardly clothed at all. They stand and lather themselves with sun tan lotion, not caring at all who sees. How we wish such wonderful customs would migrate over the Atlantic. It’s a shame we don’t embrace the female figure more openly.
11 The Matrix
Here is Bellucci in a screenshot from one of her most famous Hollywood roles. Bellucci played Persephone in Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions. She was married to the Merovingian, but was attracted to Neo, since the Merovingian was a big jerk. This is a hot red outfit, but Persephone also famously wore a white gown with an even lower cut gown. Of course, the name Persephone comes from Greek mythology. Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and who Hades took to hell to be his wife. This is an obvious reference to the nightclub, Club Hel, which the Merovingian rules. That’s also a reason why Persephone is dressed in red in Club Hel and then rises above and is dressed in white. While the Matrix had some complicated plot twists, much of its symbolism was quite basic.
10 Lucky Chair
We are wishing we were a chair right now, right? Here is a feature that Monica rarely shows off—her gorgeous legs. Bellucci is mostly known for her chest, which she loves to show off every chance she gets. However, as this list proves, her entire body looks great, including those long luscious stems. Her film debut was in 1991, in La Riffa, Italian for The Raffle, which was a dramatic comedy met with decent reviews. The film also meant the debut of her first unclothed scene and her first love scene. Directors always seem to cast Bellucci in risque roles, and she just doesn’t mind playing them either. After all, sensuality comes easy for her, and she knows what she’s good at. She considers her body an extension of her acting and uses it the best she can. More on that later.
9 Crawling Into Bed
This is a dream come true for most dudes. What could be better than watching Monica crawl into bed and then holding that position, like she’s just waiting for you to join her? It seems like Monica is the most seductive star in movie history. And we must confess, this is the tamest list we could possibly make. If you think this pose is pushing the limit, then you should see some of the other photo shoots she’s done for European publications. She’s even done topless calendars. Also, she likes water. She can be seen wearing nothing but aqua in a number of poses, like writhing under a waterfall or doing the back stroke in nothing but her birthday suit. Consider this article a pleasant starting point for a long day of Google image searching.
8 The Rare Blonde
It’s funny what a little hair bleach can do. We’re so used to seeing Monica as a dark Italian brunette that it’s almost jarring to see her rock the blond locks. She looks like an entirely different person and resembles starlets like Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke. Bellucci was a blonde for the film The Second Wind in 2007. That’s a translation, though. The original title is French for Le Deuxième Souffle. The movie is about a gangster who escapes from prison, reunites with his hot girlfriend, and tries to complete that one last job. If the plot seems rehashed, you’re right. It has been done over for years. The film is actually a direct remake of the 1966 original. Guess what else? Bellucci has a hot love scene. Shocker.
7 Looking Good
After doing some diligent internet image searching, we have determined that Bellucci did this exact pose, but with zero clothing on. Either that or some dude did a marvelous fake that went viral. Since Bellucci seems so eager to disrobe, we are inclined to believe that the non-clothing image is actually the real deal, although we could only show you the clothed version on our respectable SFW site. Bellucci speaks freely on the topic, “I’m not scared by nudity, because for me, nothing is more beautiful than a body. You can have such an amazing emotion from a body. In Irréversible (2002), I treated my body like it was an object and it’s great when you can have this kind of relation with your body, it’s a part of your job, an object you can work with. When you can have this kind of freedom, it’s the moment where you can give your best as an actress.”
6 Desire For Grapes
Sometimes, we can’t have a picture of exactly what we want to see, but a suggestive prop may get close enough. Here, we see Bellucci with her mouth open, welcoming a cluster of grapes onto her tongue. We can easily do the Photoshop in our minds on this shot. Surely, some geek out there on the interwebs has exchanged the grape cluster for something else. It would be an easy switch that a Snapchat could even do. Monica must realize what is implied here. But again, she could care less. The woman is fearless. She says, “My body is so important to me...my face, my arms, my legs, my hands, my eyes, everything. I use everything I have.” In this shot, she uses her fingers, neck, face, mouth, and tongue to perfection.
5 By The Rocky Shore
This may be the rocky shore of Italy. We’re not sure, but we do know that Monica is looking so fine in this pic. As is the case with many of these photos, she did much more revealing outfits while at this shoot. In one of the pics, she is sitting on the rocks and wearing no clothes at all. Bellucci first caught our eye in Bram Stoker’s Dracula back in 1992. There have been many vampire-themed movies over the years, but this one may be the most accurate to the book. This is the film that starred Gary Oldman as Dracula and Belluci as his wife. And, of course, Monica took her top off and stole the show. Winona Ryder, the female lead, was probably upset and jealous at how much attention Monica received. Ryder was then in the peak of her career, which faltered for decades, before bouncing back on Stranger Things.
4 Master Of Embrace
If you didn’t know by now, it’s true that Bellucci has done a ton of love scenes. She is pretty much the master of getting intimate on the big screen and has at least one kissing scene in about every film she appears in. And she goes both ways too. In Sanquepazzo, (Wild Blood) in 2008, seen above, Monica played a lesbian movie maker in 1945 fascist Italy. Later, she made out big time with Daniel Craig in Spectre. In fact, at 51, she was the oldest Bond girl to date, in one of the largest-budget films in history. But, perhaps the best and most entertaining love scene was in Shoot ‘Em Up with Clive Owen. In the action film, Owen plays a real Bond-like bad a*s who is constantly shooting guns. The funny part is he even shoots guns while he is doing Bellucci. In one scene, he picks her up in one arm and spins her around, while shooting expertly at villains all around him.
3 Tying Strings
Don’t you just hate it when you’re at the beach and your top gets untied? Then, you have to struggle to get it tied or maybe even ask a friend. Or in one such fantasy, you are the guy watching this babe struggle, until she eventually asks, “Can you tie me?” Then, when you attempt to tie her up, your nervous fingers fumble, which you both giggle about, and then suddenly find yourselves entwined in an intimate embrace. Okay, that was a dreamy moment. You can surely come up with a better scenario on your own. The fact is that this picture is hot and features a rare look at some of Monica’s assets that aren’t usually on display. She shows off her chest quite frequently but the view from the backside is pretty perfect too.
2 A Fluid Moment
If you can use your imagination, just the slightest bit, you can probably create a pretty hot scenario in your mind to explain what is happening in this picture. Whoever the photographer behind this one is, thank you, sir. You have done a service to most dudes in the world. How do you write up a pic like this? Yes, it is quite suggestive without being indecent at all. It’s just a woman who accidentally spilled a bucket of honey all over her face. Nothing out of the ordinary here, right? Moving along, Monica is a great actress, isn’t she? Her first critically acclaimed role was in the French film L’Appartement, or The Apartment. She played an ex-lover of a New York writer, and she stole the show. She was nominated for a César, which is like the French Oscar. She didn’t win but gained a ton of attention, and then, the scripts started rolling in.
1 Smoking Hot
So, this article has mostly been about how hot Bellucci looks. But let’s not forget, she’s also a genius too. First off, the woman speaks six languages. Yes, six! That’s English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Persian, and her native Italian. Not only that, but she was in law school before all this acting stuff. She became a model to pay her way through law school and ended up transitioning into acting because she is that brilliant. Just think of how many models try to act and then suck. It’s not as easy as you think. And she has sustained that acting career for decades, which also isn’t easy. She’s been in films like The Matrix, Dracula, The Brothers Grimm, and many more foreign titles. She’s still working today, having just appeared on the Twin Peaks reboot. This woman can be admired on many levels, but what she embraces the most are her Italian roots. She speaks to her two kids in Italian. “Wherever I go, I am Italian,” she says. Okay. Please take us with you.
