Monica Bellucci says her 'SPECTRE co-star Daniel Craig never once made her feel "uncomfortable" during their intimate scenes
Monica Bellucci says Daniel Craig is "so generous."
The 'SPECTRE' star portrays widow Lucia Sciarra in the new movie opposite the 47-year-old actor's alter-ego James Bond and has admitted he never once made her feel "uncomfortable" during their intimate scenes.
She explained: "Daniel is so generous as an actor and a man, so I was never uncomfortable.
"When you have to do intimate scenes with someone, it's so important for the chemistry to be there - because then it becomes more like a tango."
She added to the Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine: "But I don't think it's a coincidence that a lot of roles I'm playing now are women coming out of the darkness into the light because I do feel that ageing has given me a new freedom."
The 51-year-old beauty - who is the oldest Bond Girl in the franchise's history - initially thought director Sam Mendes was casting her as the new M, formerly played by Dame Judi Dench, due to her age.
She explained: "I assumed they wanted me to play the new M. I really did but when Sam explained that he wanted 'an adult woman to seduce Bond for the first time,' I realised that this was going to revolutionary. It's such a beautiful example to set for other actresses - and other women."
