Monica Bellucci Models 'The Dolce And Gabbana Couture Story' For Vogue Italia, "Because I’m pretty everybody thinks I’m stupid"

Italian beauty Monica Bellucci has graced the cover of Vogue Italia September 2012 issue as a Dolce and Gabbana model for, “the Dolce & Gabbana’s couture story.”

In an interview with THE TALKS Monica mentioned her beauty…

Mrs. Bellucci, do you get more work because you are beautiful?

I know that beauty invites a certain curiosity. But, as Oscar Wilde said, beauty is just five minutes long if you don’t have anything else to sustain that curiosity. I don’t think that I would have made this kind of career if I were just beautiful. Directors don’t call you for your beauty but for your talent.

Have your looks ever been an obstacle for you?

Yes, of course – especially because I was coming from the fashion business. It was a double problem; fashion and beauty are the worst things to make it with this career. Because I’m pretty everybody thinks I’m stupid. But it is like a mask and you have to break the mask to show that there is something else behind it. You have to show who you are to make the others come to discover you.

Is that why you often choose extreme roles?

Maybe yes.
