MONICA Bellucci thinks it is "difficult" to be faithful.

The 'Spectre' actress - who was previously married to Vincent Cassel - believes people have affairs because it isn't easy to find a partner who has all the characteristics they are looking for.

Asked if she agreed with Daniel Craig's view that James Bond is "misogynistic, sexist and very lonely", she said: "No I don't think so.

"I think it's difficult to find the right woman for a man, to find a woman with all the characteristics that a man needs. The same thing for women.

"That's why it's so difficult to be faithful in life."

The 51-year-old beauty enjoyed working with Daniel on the latest installment of the spy saga and found shooting sex scenes with him "easy".

She told the new issue of Britain's GQ magazine: "What I like about Daniel is that it's so simple, he's a great actor, he's very beautiful.

"It was easy to do scenes that would be difficult to do with someone else, where you have to get intimate with someone you don't know, but with him it was easy."

Monica also revealed she was previously asked to star in a Bond movie over 20 years ago but didn't feel "ready" at the time.

She said: "A long time ago I did a screen test for James Bond, more than 20 years ago, But I was not ready.

"I don't remember the film. It was Pierce Brosnan I think - he was an amazing Bond, so sweet and so kind. Violent, but in a very nice way."
