Gilliam: 'Bellucci Has Italian Sex Appeal'

Director TERRY GILLIAM has hailed Italian women as the ultimate screen goddesses after working alongside MONICA BELLUCCI in THE BROTHERS GRIMM.

The former MONTY PYTHON star was enraptured by Bellucci's sex appeal during filming, and credits her with bringing the fantasy movie to life.

He says, "Immediately she comes on screen, it seems to me the whole film lifts up into another realm, a realm of sex and sensuality and danger.

"She reminds me of the old divas like SOPHIA LOREN , GINA LOLLOBRIGIDA, CLAUDIA CARDINALE. Italians create these women. I don't know how they produce them but they do, and they all seem smart, sensuous and strangely they still keep their feet on the ground."
