Actor Monica Bellucci, who appears opposite Daniel Craig in the latest Bond movie Spectre, has claimed a woman’s age has no bearing on her sexual appeal.
The 51-year-old star stated that it’s quite natural for young men to be attracted to older women. She added “We should not be worried about age when it comes to love and attraction. Just as younger women are attracted to older men, it shouldn’t be considered strange that men in their 20s and 30s are drawn to older women,” reported IANS.
Bellucci is the oldest Bond girl in the history of the iconic film franchise, but she isn’t bothered by her age. It’s the chemistry and energy between men and women that counts. True sexiness is in the mind and the imagination, not in the age of the body,” she said.

Commenting on Bond’s love interests having been younger than her in the past, Bellucci challenged the stereotype. “It’s important to show that a woman at 50 can be just as interesting and attractive as a woman who is 30,” she added, reported Huffington Post.
Applauding the changing dynamics of the film industry, Bellucci mentioned, “It’s a sign that cinema is able to take a new and more open look at mature women.” She added, “This is a beautiful and rich period from a professional point of view. As far as my private life is concerned, I’m a mother with two daughters, and so I don’t have much time to rest!”
