Who is more beautiful... Monica Bellucci ?


Or Angelina Jolie?


They're both beautiful.  At the moment, though, I'm fascinated by Italian actress Bellucci.
She was mesmerizing in Malèna. (Reminds me to rent it again on Netflix.) 

What do you think?

I would be very hard pressed if I had to deiced which is more beautiful. Both are amazing women that have done so much for women as a whole. Monica with her fight against to thin models and the rights for single women and adoption. Angie and all of her work with the UN. Two beautiful women helping others.

Tough one. But Belucci has an old-school, classic beauty. She is of another era. And Jolie is extremely modern to my eye - almost of the future. She's an alien. I love both of them, and I am a diehard Jolie fan. But I love Belucci's European standard of beauty. She doesn't hold to the overly-thin strictures of Hollywood (when will Hollywood stop being so unhealthy?) She's her own person, unapologetic. And that's important.

Belucci definitely gets my vote. . .something both timeless and less obvious about her beauty. She also projects a softer femininity.

I've had a fascination with Angelina since I was 21. However, there's something about Bellucci that makes it hard for me to take my eyes off of her.

Bellucci - hands down. Angelina creeps me out.

They both are...I hate comparing people. Though I agree with the "classic" vs. "modern" person above.

And they both do good work on-screen & off.

As for Malèna, I too loved it. But even though I work on the most depressing issues & so am fairly tough, something about having been in Sicilia early in life & returning over the's so disheartening to me, the world pictured in Malèna because no matter what many say, much has not changed for women there. Still, it is a compelling place: tragic & beautiful. I guess sort of like Malèna herself, eh?

I enjoyed your photographs & posts from DC, BTW. Much appreciated by a reader from there...ciao.

Why do you make my brain ache with such queries!? Delightful ache! I choose M.B., she looks "darker" perhaps more alluring. But heck, this is too difficult!

this one's simple. monica belucci is the most beautiful woman in the world, or at least close. she's from umbria, italy, perhaps the world's loveliest place. and while she may secretly be an awful person -- i dont think we yanks hear that much about her -- she's not full of all the weird billy-bob baggage that AJ (a fine actress no question) is.

of course, to each his own.
