Monica Bellucci posed topless on the cover of the February 2013 issue of Vanity Fair Spain. 

The 48-year-old, who is also the ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana's beauty campaign, looked stunning in the photos taken by celebrity fashion photographer Norma Jean Roy. In the magazine's cover story, Bellucci discussed a wide range of topics from motherhood, her marriage to actor Vince Cassel and living a nomad life with her family.

Bellucci told Vanity Fair Spain she chose to have children later in life- she had her first child at the age of 40- because she wanted to enjoy her career before she dived into parenthood.

"I decided to do (it) when I was an adult, not very young, because I wanted to enjoy my experience as an actress without feeling guilty," she said.

The Italian beauty revealed that she and her husband, actor Vince Cassel ("Black Swan"), have houses in London, Paris, and Rome, and have decided to purchase another one in Brazil.

About her decision to become an actress, she noted that it was because she wanted a change from her "simple" and "boring" childhood. 

"I come from a very stable family of a small town. A child I felt very protected and very comfortable, but it was very boring...all the same, summer vacations, school winter," she said. "I had a fantastic education, very protective, and my attitude was, 'thank you for everything, but I need the opposite, to be free.'"

When Bellucci discussed her marriage with Cassel, whom she called a good father because he values the lives of their two daughters more importantly than "his own life," she said that while they are very much together, they still have their own separate lives.

"I never get involved in the choice of his papers nor in mine," she said. "We are very independent, we live in different worlds: his friends are your friends, mine are different."
