Monica Bellucci is seen on the set of her new film Rhinos Season in Istanbul, Turkey last week (April 12). The beautiful Italian actress was also spotted on set earlier this month. Check out the pics on the Monica Bellucci page.
Speaking of Bellucci, in the wake of the corruption and prostitution scandal involving Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, Newsweek had a pretty interesting piece on the "machismo" of Italian culture. Bellucci told the magazine that change in society won't come easy, but is attainable:
"[Mussolini] used to say that genius is just a men's quality. We are coming from that as the base, and it takes so much time to come up from that mentality. In Italy, women have to learn so many things. But most importantly, they have to learn confidence. Women in Italy are beautiful and sexy, but they have to learn that's not all they have."
