Monica Bellucci in Italian Vanity Fair Causing a Stink with the Vatican

08/08/2004 at 02:07 AM ET

Italian screen siren Monica Bellucci’s naked pregnant pose on that country’s edition of Vanity Fair is making waves in the Vatican. The “Passion of the Christ” actress and her French husband, Vincent Cassel, are expecting their first child in the fall, and Belluci decided to bare all as a protest against new Italian laws that allow only married couples to use in-vitro fertilization and prohibits the use of donor sperm. In the magazine, the beauty rages, “Over here, if you aren’t married with all the proper rubber stamps, they stop you using science to have a child. Religious and ethical dogmas have prevailed upon common sense.”Via SeattlePI.com
