Monica Bellucci puts respect before fidelity
Monica Bellucci wouldn't expect her husband to be faithful to her if they were separated for a lengthy period of time, and values respect more than fidelity.
Monica Bellucci wouldn't mind her husband being unfaithful if they were apart for a while.
The 46-year-old actress - who has daughters Deva, six, and 10-month-old Leonie with spouse Vincent Cassel - values respect and loyalty more in a relationship than fidelity.
She said: "Passion you can feel for the worst man you ever met.
"But that has nothing to do with a deeper partnership. In such a one, passion stays, but more important is confidence, respect, knowing a man is not just loyal in a sex way, but that they will be there for you. That is more important than just fidelity.
"It would be ridiculous to ask [fidelity] of him if I hadn't been there for two months.
"You can't ask such things as who has he been seeing, what has he been up to? It is more respectful and realistic to take the view that you'll be with me when I see you."
The brunette beauty insists she is still besotted with her husband, who she married in 1999, but admits there are times when they don't get along.
She told Style magazine: "I think he's sexy. It's important to go on thinking that about your husband. But Vincent is not a normal man. Sometimes I love him so much, sometimes I want to kill him."
