The world of cinema has recently witnessed the union of two of its most illustrious figures, Tim Burton and Monica Bellucci, as they made their relationship red carpet official. Their debut as a couple took place at the ‘Diabolik Chi Sei?’ premiere during the 18th Rome Film Festival, held at Auditorium Parco Della Musica in Rome. This marks a significant moment in their personal and professional lives, intertwining the magic of their cinematic worlds.
Tim Burton, the 65-year-old iconic director known for his dark, gothic, and quirky films, appeared in a jet-black suit, shirt, tie, and shoes, maintaining his signature style. On his side was Monica Bellucci, the 59-year-old Italian actress and former Bond girl, stunning in a floor-length, off-the-shoulder gown in dark gray. Her sleek blowout and smoky eyes complemented the elegance of her attire. The couple posed affectionately, with Burton at one point placing his arm behind Bellucci, a gesture that spoke volumes of their comfort and happiness together.
According to ParisMatch, the couple met briefly on the red carpet of the 2006 Cannes Film Festival but only started dating after reuniting at the Lumière Film Festival in Lyon in October 2022. Their relationship was confirmed by Bellucci in an interview with Elle France in June. She expressed her happiness and love for Burton, emphasizing a deep connection with both the man and the director.
Their professional collaboration is as exciting as their personal one, with Bellucci cast in the highly anticipated sequel to Burton’s 1988 horror-comedy film, ‘Beetlejuice.’ She will portray the wife of the title character, played by Michael Keaton, further solidifying their creative partnership.
Bellucci’s recent appearance on the red carpet was also for the premiere of her new movie ‘Maria Callas: Lettere E Memorie’ at the Rome Film Festival, where she plays the Opera superstar Maria Callas. Burton, ever the supportive partner, was by her side, showcasing their strong bond.
Burton and Bellucci’s relationship is a beautiful blend of love, respect, and shared creative passions, painting a picture of a cinematic romance that has captivated the hearts of many.
