She became known and popular with worldwide audiences, following her roles in Malèna (2000), Brotherhood of the Wolf (2001), and Irreversible (2002), The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003), followed by her portrayal of Mary Magdalene in The Passion of the Christ (2004). Monica has said in an interview that Sophia Loren and Claudia Cardinal have inspired her acting career.
In 2003, Bellucci won the Nastro d’Argento Best Supporting Actress award for her portrayal of Alessia in Remember Me, My Love. She has been nominated for several others, including the 1996 Cesar Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Lisa in L’appartement. She was once quoted as saying, “Acting is not words. Holly Hunter didn’t speak in The Piano (1993) and she won an Oscar.” Bellucci was supposed to be seen portraying Indian politician Sonia Gandhi in the biopic Sonia, but the project never took off.
