Italian actress Monica Bellucci feels that beauty cannot be defined by set rules, and that different women look attractive in their own right.
The Italian sex symbol insisted that ‘beauty has no laws’.
"Beauty has no law and there is no one way to be beautiful. Women like Sophia Loren and Charlotte Rampling have two totally different ways of being sexy,” Daily Express quoted Bellucci, as saying.
The statuesque 42-year-old revealed that she is proud of what she has and is lucky that directors think that Italian women are ‘strong’.
“My body is important to me. My face, my arms, my hands, my eyes, everything. I use everything I have. Today, if women look or feel voluptuous they feel guilty,” she said.
"I'm lucky if some directors still think of Italian women as being strong, sensuous and dangerous,” she added.
The Matrix Reloaded actress, however, feels that Hollywood directors often relate her Italian beauty to being a ‘strong woman’ within, although she confesses that she’s actually ‘weak and insecure’ inside.
"You should ask the directors why they think of me for those roles,” she said.
"Maybe they are looking for a strong woman and think I am much stronger than I am. In real like, I'm much more weak and insecure,” she added.
