There was no love at first sight for Monica Bellucci and hubby Vincent Cassel.
Actually, it was hate. The two met on the set of "L'Appartement". She thought: 'This guy is very pretentious - who does he think he is?'
And Vincent thought Monica was just a model pretending to be an actress.
But the far from promising start developed into a well balanced long term marriage.
"It was not love at first sight. In fact, it was the opposite. I thought, 'This guy is very pretentious - who does he think he is?'
But we got to know each other over time. I realized he was not as he seemed. He put up a public face, like many of us.
He also told me later, 'I thought you were just a model pretending to be an actress. Then, I realized you could act.'"
Monica is still astonished of her happy marriage:
"It is impossible to say why one marriage stays stable and another collapses.
For me it is a miracle every day."
