Italian actress Monica Belluci is thrilled she is no longer in her 20s because growing older has helped her embrace motherhood.
The Shoot 'Em Up actress who has four-year-old daughter Deva with her husband Vincent Cassel is relieved to have gotten older because her life has been hugely enhanced by motherhood, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"I wouldn't want to be 20 again for anything. I am much happier now than when I was younger. You have to discover who you are, who you are going to be, there are so many insecurities. Today, I know the things that I need, the things that I can live without," she said.
"Deva arrived at a perfect moment for me. I have done so many things in my life, been to so many places, had some great times - but when she came I was ready to give her everything she needed. The most important thing with children is to give them time," she added.
The 44-year-old adores being a mother and happily shuns glamorous Hollywood parties to spend time with her daughter.
"I am at a stage in my life where I if I don't go out, I don't feel I'm missing something. I get bored surrounded by people smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol. And I'm not so interested now in going to premieres or being photographed on the red carpet. I want to be with her," she said.
