Monica Bellucci Separates From Husband Vincent Cassel
Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel announced their separation after 14 years of marriage.
“Vincent Cassel confirms that he is separating from his wife Monica Bellucci by mutual agreement,” Cassel’s rep said in a statement.
Bellucci, the Italian model-actress, met Cassel, a French actor, on the 1996 set of the French film, The Apartment. They married in 1999, and each has since starred in many American films. Bellucci co-starred in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions as Persephone in 2003 and Cassel is known for his roles in Ocean Twelve and Thirteen and his recent appearance in 2010’s Oscar-nominated Black Swan.
The couple has two daughters, Deva, 8, and Léonie, 3. This is the second marriage to end in divorce for Bellucci, who was previously married to Claudio Carlos Basso from 1990-1994. This was Cassel’s first marriage.
