Monica Bellucci, 50, is the oldest Bond love interest in the franchise's history, and is four years older than her sexy co-star, 46-year-old Daniel Craig. The Italian actress admitted to The Sunday Times
that she was shocked when director Sam Mendes called to tell her she landed the highly coveted role in Spectre
. "My first thought was, 'How can I be a Bond girl at 50?'" she recalled. "I just blurted out, 'I'm not a girl, I'm a woman, I'm a mature woman. Do I have to replace Judi Dench?'"
