The world of cinema has been graced by the beauty and talent of Monica Bellucci for over three decades, and it appears that the Italian actress has once again found love. According to sources, Bellucci has been in a relationship with film producer Tim Burton for the past four months, though the couple has been successful in keeping the news under wraps until now.
From Onstage to Offstage: A Love Story Nearly Two Decades in the Making
Bellucci and Burton first crossed paths at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, but it was not until the Lumière Film Festival in Lyon last October that the spark was reignited.
Bellucci presented Burton with the Lumiere Lifetime Achievement Award for his work as a director and producer, and the two have been inseparable ever since. In his acceptance speech, Burton gushed, "All my life put together, I have never felt so much love as tonight.
Welcome to the best funeral I ever had!" The couple was also spotted at the broadcast of "Silent Documentary Film", a classic film directed by Louis Lumiere in 1895.
A History of Love and Loss
Bellucci was previously in a relationship with artist Nicolas Lefebvre, which ended in 2019, and was married to Vincent Cassel from 1997 to 2013.
The couple has two daughters, Deva and Leonie. Burton was previously married to Helena Bonham Carter, with whom he has a son, Billy, and a daughter, Nell. Bellucci has been single since her separation from Lefebvre, and Burton has been single since his divorce from Bonham Carter in 2014.
Speaking to Paris Match in 2011, Bellucci described her approach to love as being driven by emotion rather than reason, saying, "I am carried by the moment and instinct. No rationality, only emotions. You love or you don't. You don't decide sitting around a table." It seems that Bellucci and Burton have found love in each other, and the world of cinema is all the richer for it.
