In France as in the world, cinema often rhymes with love. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet or even Michael Douglas and Christine Zeta-Jones, we no longer count the number of couples of actors and actresses born in this environment.

In France and Italy, the Bellucci-Cassel couple has become an icon. Their story has indeed aroused the passions of many European fans but also around the world. It all started in 1996 on the set of the film The Apartment, by Gilles de Mimouni. Arriving in France a year earlier, Monica Bellucci was then already married to photographer Claudio Basso, reports Marie Claire.

But that does not prevent her from falling under the spell of her colleague Vincent Cassel to whom she gives the reply. Very quickly the two lovers formalize their relationship and settle down together. A few years later, in 1999, they married and became one of the most popular couples of the moment, both being particularly fashionable and recognized for their talent.

Together, they make the whole of France dream because couple crises do not seem to exist in the eyes of the public. In 2004, in Rome, their relationship took a new turn with the birth of Deva, their daughter, then Léonie in 2010 in the same city.

Italy, France, England, Brazil… The little family travels the whole world. However, on August 26, 2013, after 17 years of relationship, Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci officially announced their breakup without revealing the reasons. “There will always be love between us. Even if our paths separate, Vincent and I will always be there for each other.”, Even entrusted Monica Bellucci to our Italian colleagues from Chi.
