(femalefirst.co.uk) - Monica Bellucci is proud of her sexy curves. The sultry 'Matrix Reloaded' actress takes great care of her voluptuous figure and refuses to feel guilty about her body.
She told Esquire magazine: "My body is so important to me. My face, my arms, my legs, my hands, my eyes, everything. I use everything I have. Today, if women look or feel voluptuous they feel guilty but beauty has no law and there is no way to be beautiful. "Women like Sophia Loren and Charlotte Rampling, they have two totally different ways of being sexy."
Bellucci is currently promoting British thriller "Shoot 'Em Up", in which she stars alongside Paul Giamatti and Clive Owen.
She believes playing strong, passionate characters will help women change their body image perceptions.Bellucci said: "When you think about Italian actresses you think about those very strong, beautiful women with strong identities - women who are ready to do anything for their own passion."Beauty is like a Ferrari because you have got to know how to drive it. Beauty can serve you if you know how to deal with it. If you don't, you'll go straight into a wall and die."
