Monica Bellucci began modeling in her early 20s, signing with Elite Model Management in Milan. She has posed for French Elle magazine and was the face for a range of Dior products from 2009 to 2011, before signing on to become the new face for Dolce & Gabbana in 2012. After some minor acting parts in the 1990s, she started gaining more attention for roles in movies like "Tears of the Sun," "Brotherhood of the Wolf," "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Passion of the Christ" in the 2000s.
