Swimming is my favourite form of exercise: Monica Bellucci

Swimming is my favourite form of exercise, and I often spend 45 minutes in pool, said Monica Bellucci.
The James Bond actress’s enviably nipped-in waist — seen on a recent outing in New York — is the result of being ‘very active’ but exercising only sporadically.
‘For one month I do Pilates very often, then for the next I do nothing,’ says the 51-year-old actress.
‘But I have an elastic [the giant bands used for resistance stretches] that I bring with me to hotels, so I can do elastic, sometimes on my own.’ She
What to try: The scale pose uses your entire middle section, helping to sculpt your waist. Sit cross-legged with hands on the floor next to your hips, reports daily mail online. Tighten pelvic floor and stomach muscles and push down into your hands to try to lift your body off the floor.
Keep elbows tucked in. Don’t worry if you can’t manage it at first — keep your feet on the floor and just lift your bottom. It will come with practice. Hold for three breaths, and lower back down. Repeat this three times.
Contactmusic adds: Spectre’ star Monica has claimed ”true sexiness is in the mind” and said it’s normal for younger men to be attracted to older women. The 51-year-old actress – who appears opposite Daniel Craig in the new Bond movie ‘Spectre’ – has claimed a woman’s age has no bearing on her sexual appeal and insisted it’s quite natural for young men to be attracted to older women.
Monica – who has two daughters, Deva, 10, and Leonie, five, with her estranged husband Vincent Cassel – said: ”We should not be worried about age when it comes to love and attraction.
”Just as younger women are attracted to older men, it shouldn’t be considered strange that men in their 20s and 30s are drawn to older women. It’s the chemistry and energy between men and women that counts …True sexiness is in the mind, the imagination, not in the age of the body.” The Italian beauty is the oldest Bond girl in the history of the money-spinning film franchise, but Monica isn’t bothered by her age.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ”This is a beautiful and rich period from a professional point of view. As far as my private life is concerned, I’m a mother with two daughters, and so I don’t have much time to rest! ”But I feel very energised right now and I’ve gained the kind of wisdom over the years where I’m able to appreciate all the beautiful and small things that are part of everyday life.”
Meanwhile, Monica – who separated from her husband in 2013 – has revealed she’s enjoying the freedom of being single.
