Monica Bellucci, 42, who plays a lactating prostitute in Shoot ‘Em Up (out September 7), has motherhood experience of her own thanks to her three-year-old daughter Deva.

“She travels with me all the time. To be an actor is much better than being a doctor or a lawyer because you can bring your babies with you in the office. I can bring my baby to work.” How has motherhood changed her? “It’s great,” she tells me. “To be a mother is just amazing. I have so many friends who don’t have children, and they’re very happy like that. It’s really a personal choice to become a mother. For me, it’s the most beautiful thing.”

Monica has been married to actor Vincent Cassel since 1999.
