In a recent interview with moviehole.net, Italian actress Monica Bellucci, 42, talked about her life as a mother and how her acting life affects her personal life. When her daughter Deva, 3 next month, was born, her life changed completely.
When you have a child, the baby is the priority in your life and I’d do anything for her. I don’t know how you can stay away from your child and to me it’s impossible. It means that she travels always with me and I’m sure that when she’s gets older, and goes to school, I’m sure that I’ll work in a different way.
She says she owes a great deal of her personality to her family and childhood in Italy.
I have a great family, and I think it is so important to have a balance, maybe because I come from Italy. In my culture, the family is so important. [My family] taught me to always have the feet on the ground, and to always be simple. I’ve done a few interesting things, but at the same time, I didn’t change.
In her latest movie Shoot ‘Em Up Monica has to play the character of a mother, protecting her baby and says that being a mother in real life helped her,
I was already a mother in ‘Remember Me, My Love,’ but wasn’t a mother at this time, when I did the movie. So of course, when you’re a mother, you know so many things about children, whom you have to take care of.
Monica is married to French actor Vincent Cassel, 40.
