Matt Damon left Monica Bellucci in fits of giggles during the filming of The Brothers Grimm, she has revealed.
The Italian actress, who played the Mirror Queen in Terry Gilliam's fantasy, admitted filming was halted because she couldn't stop laughing as the couple shot their sex scene.
"I just found him so funny, it actually helped though - when you have love scenes with someone that you've never met before, it's difficult," she told the Daily Mirror.
"You have to create a nice situation, a good sensibility. With him it was easy. He just made me laugh."
Monica - who stars in The Sorcerer's Apprentice with Nicolas Cage - admitted sparks flew for the wrong reasons when she first met husband Vincent Cassel on the set of L'appartement.
"It was not love at first sight - in fact, it was the opposite," she recalled.
"I thought, 'This guy is very pretentious. Who does he think he is?' But we got to know each other over time and I realised that he was not as he seemed."
