Tim Burton and Monica Bellucci on the red carpet

Monica Bellucci, in full promotion of Paradis Paris by the talented Marjane Satrapi, opened up to Paris Match about her relationship with Tim Burton. The actress, who has been with the director for two years, emphasizes the distinction between private and professional life. "I am with Tim, not with Tim Burton," she stated.

The couple met at the Lumière Festival in October 2022, where the beautiful Italian presented the Lumière Award to the filmmaker. Their relationship was revealed by Paris Match in February 2023, and they made it official by appearing together at the Rome International Film Festival. Monica Bellucci describes this meeting as a rare opportunity in a lifetime, sincerely expressing her happiness at having met the man before the director.

In an interview with Elle in June 2023, Monica Bellucci said: "I know the man, I love him, and now, I am going to meet the director. It’s another adventure that begins." She also mentioned how her priorities have changed with age, now preferring complicity over confrontation.

The couple is currently working together on Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, the sequel to the cult film of 1988, which is scheduled for release in September 2024.
