Monica Bellucci thinks ageing is sexy.
The 51-year-old brunette beauty is the oldest ever Bond girl, thanks to her role in upcoming movie 'SPECTRE' and says that there is a certain type of beauty that comes with getting older.
She told United Airlines' Rhapsody Magazine: "In Europe, I think we're lucky. Look at Isabelle Huppert, Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Rampling, Juliette Binoche.
"There are a lot of women getting beautiful roles as they get older, and I think it's right. There's a certain beauty with youth, but there's another one that comes with age. Your soul grows, and that's sexy."
This isn't the first time that Monica has spoken about her lack of concern over getting older.
She recently told the Daily Mail newspaper: "I've had old people in my life that I really loved - especially women - so I'm not scared about getting old. It's what's inside that makes us beautiful on the outside."
However, she doesn't have an issue with those who have plastic surgery to stave off the ageing process.
She said: "Everybody does what she needs. And if you want plastic surgery and then you feel better, why not? There is no law.
"I've nothing against using something to help your beauty - but do it in a good way, with intelligence. I do acupuncture. Because it really helps. It is the opposite of Botox. Botox blocks and acupuncture moves. Botox for some people is really good. For others they have different reactions. I am for freedom."
