Movie goddess Monica Bellucci insists Americans and Europeans have very different views on what's acceptable - both on film and in real life.

The Italian actress, who has stripped off in a variety of films and even shot a shocking rape scene for controversial movie IRREVERSIBLE, uses former American president Bill Clinton as an example of differing attitudes to sex across the Atlantic.

She says, "European films mess with things, like they have the hero having sex with prostitutes. I like that, it's funny. A human being can be both good and bad.

"It's like the scandal with President Clinton that was such a big deal in the US. In Europe, we were just laughing about it. You can be a great leader and f*** 2,000 women a day, what is the problem?"
