Monica Bellucci Confirms Romance With This Hollywood Icon 16 Years After First Meeting

'I Love Him' - the actress said of the director in a new interview for "Elle" France.

Hollywood sensation Monica Bellucci opens up about her newfound love with a legendary icon, director Tim Burton. Sixteen years after their initial encounter, sparks have reignited, leaving fans and followers captivated by the unexpected twist.

Back in 2013, Bellucci separated from her husband of 14 years. Since then, her dating life has been the subject of constant media speculation. Let's scroll down to uncover the details behind this enchanting love story that has taken both the industry and fans by storm.


#1. She’s grateful.

The speculation about her relationship with 64-year-old director Tim Burton raised months ago. And it was not until the former Bond Gild confirmed in an interview that the pair are officially in love.

Bellucci said, “What I can say... I’m glad I met the man, first of all.” She added, “It’s one of those encounters that rarely happens in life... I know the man, I love him, and now I’m going to meet the director, another adventure begins.”


#2. They are both parents to 2 kids.

Tim Burton is an iconic director in Hollywood, having directed films such as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and Alice in Wonderland.

Burton has two children, a boy and a girl, with his ex, actress Helena Bonham Carter, just like Monica does with her ex-husband. Burton and Carter were married from 2001 to 2014.


#3. They met 16 years ago.

Tim and Monica first met on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival 16 years ago.

Over 15 years later, Monica presented Tim with a lifetime achievement award at the Lumière Film Festival in October 2022, bringing the actress and director together once more. Four months later, the couple was seen walking arm in arm in Madrid. On Valentine's Day that same month, they were seen kissing in Paris.


#4. She’s also a fan of Tim, the director.

Aside from their romance, the two are collaborating on the highly anticipated film Beetlejuice 2. Monica has expressed her admiration for Tim, saying, "I love Tim. And I have a lot of admiration for Tim Burton."

"I love this dream world where the monsters are kind as if we can transform our darker sides into something bright and forgiving," she continued. Tim Burton's films are filled with references to this.

We love this adorable couple. And we believe that the acclaimed filmmaker is a lucky man to have found such a lovely and grounded woman as Monica. Do you agree with us?
