Monica Bellucci is cooking up a giant saucepan of spaghetti in plunging undies, and Instagram is loving it. The 56-year-old actress and model, big-time proving she's got an edge on the 20-somethings competition, this week updated her Instagram with a stunning and very Italian shot, showcasing the European country's most-famous dish and delighting her 3.9 million followers. Coming as promo for the brunette's latest Madame Figaro feature, the photo went old-school, but the star's followers thought it was the freshest thing they've seen. Check it out below.

Never Too Old For Undies

Scroll for the photo. Monica, still in the acting game and currently shooting La Befana Comes at Night 2, is currently in Italy for filming. Apt, then, for the star to update all spaghetti. 

The photo, a black-and-white one, showed the legendary bombshell showing off her flawless hourglass curves, with an old-fashioned kitchen setting including woodn-panel surfaces and a farmhouse-style wall tiling. Eyes were likely on Monica, though, as she served up a freshly-cooked pan of pasta into a giant bowl.

All curves and thigh gap in sheer stockings and a skin-tight and boy shorts finish bodysuit, Bellucci was snapped smiling as she dished up, with the star's killer curves taking center stage is her all-black lingerie. "From the cover story of @madamefigaro," Monica wrote, announcing that her feature would be released next month. She then thanked her entire glam team, from the stylist to the nail artist. 

A big shout-out to luxury Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana was also made. See more photos after the snap.

Reveals Secret Weapon

While 48-year-old actress Selma Blair makes headlines for calling makeup her "gorgeous war paint," Monica has been speaking out with similar views, revealing that she feels her best glammed-up.

"I feel at my most comfortable when I have some brownish make-up around my eyes, some mascara and a very natural-look lipstick. I feel completely myself like that," she recently told Grazia, adding:

"If I push it further and make things more glamorous for a special occasion, I’ll make my eyes a lot darker but keep my lips natural, or I’ll wear a red lipstick." Scroll for more photos.

Classic Italian Beauty

Monica, who has modeled for the likes of French luxury designer Dior and the D&G brand she was wearing in her spaghetti snap, then touched on her heritage, stating:

"For me, Italian beauty is a real mix of modernity and sensuality. Italian women possess a great deal of drama in their eyes, they’re actually used to speaking more with their eyes than with their words."

Monica remains best known for becoming the oldest Bond Girl in the 007 spy franchise, starring in Spectre, with credits also seeing her in The Matrix series.
