Date of Birth:
September 20, 1975
"I find American guys sexier than Italian guys. They say Italians are great lovers but I think they're all a bunch of machos. Generally, I find Americans to be better lovers."
Where you've seen her:
In numerous foreign films, particularly those made by her father, Dario Argento, a renowned horror film director in Italy. But you're more likely to recognize her from the action thriller xXx. She also wrote, directed and starred in the drama The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things. Catch her now in George A. Romero's zombie thriller Land of the Dead.
Not just your average bella:
"Italian women are thought of as being sexy, but I'm more than just that cliché."
"I love coffee. I started drinking espresso at 13 and hated it, but I knew it wouldn't be long before I was hooked."
A star is bored:
"To tell you the truth, I'm not even very interested in sex. If I do it, I think I do it well and I enjoy it. But I don't do it very much."
"I have nothing in my life besides my work. I am obsessed with it. I leave my house only when I'm forced to. All my life, I have felt that what I did was wrong. But now when I work I feel good about it."
