Why we love Violante Placido
Who fancies a bit of culture? No? Well Violante Placido is Italian, so we’re going to count it as a bit of culture on FHM.com. And we bet you’re suddenly OK with us bringing you some culture having seen her. The Italian’s are good at culture, they have all of their sculptures and artists and that Pavarotti lark too. Plus their food and beer is pretty damn good as well. Is pizza and Peroni not culture?
Violante is from the heart of Italy in Rome, which means she’s probably a crazy driver with an old Renault 5 that’s full of dents caused by mopeds bouncing off the side of it. They. Are. Mental. We’re hoping she’s not one of those death defying scooter riders because she’s got a pretty face and we don’t want anything happening to it.
So where might you have seen said face? Well, Violante made her Hollywood debut in 2010 with a role in The American alongside some bloke called George Clooney, where she plays a prostitute and shows how comfortable she is getting naked. That came of the back of a Bollywood movie Barah Aana, and before that she was huge (we think) in Italian films like Jack Frusciante e uscito dal gruppo - yeah, that old biscuit. It actually means Jack Frusciante left the band, which was rude of him. She’s a singer too is Violante, releasing an album in 2006 called ‘Don’t Be Shy’ that featured a bunch of English tracks. Which helps because she might be cultured but we’re not, we speak no Italiano. Except birra.
