* CelebrityResemblance: Fellow Italian actress Silvia Colloca has been compared to her. She even plays the same role Monica played - Dracula's chief bride - in ''Film/VanHelsing''.



* OlderThanTheyLook: In recent works, you wouldn't believe that she's over 50. She's the oldest actress to have been cast as a [[Film/JamesBond Bond Girl]] to this day, at the age of 50 in ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.


* ActorAllusion:[[invoked]]She's seduced Keanu Reeves in both ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' and ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded''.

* AloofDarkHairedGirl: Notably in ''The Matrix'' sequels, ''Malena'' and a few others.



* CreatorCouple:[[invoked]] Gaspar Noe wanted to cast a real life couple on ''{{Film/Irreversible}}'', so he cast Monica and her husband Vincent Cassel.

** To get Giuseppe Sulfaro comfortable in their scenes together for ''Malena'', she greeted him every day with a kiss on the lips.

* FakeNationality: [[invoked]]
** As Mary Magdalene in ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist''.
** As the Egyptian-of-Greek-descent [[UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII Cleopatra]] in ''[[Film/AsterixAndCleopatra Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra]]''.
** Debatable in ''Film/BramStokersDracula''. The nationality of Dracula's brides isn't stated, so her character could be Italian.
* FanDisservice:
** ''Irreversible'' has an extended nude scene for her...while she's being raped.
** ''Malena'' features a lingerie scene - when she's been beaten up by everyone in the town.



* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: She's played a kindhearted prostitute in ''Shoot 'Em Up'' and ''How Much Do You Love me?''. Her character in ''Maléna'' starts out as a teacher, but is forced to turn to prostitution to survive.
