A number of news outlets have reported that Italian silver screen siren Monica Bellucci and actor husband Vincent Cassel were once approached by director Gaspar Noe to appear together in a pornographic production.

Bellucci and Cassel revealed this in a recent interview, according to the reports, saying they pulled out at the last minute because, "When we sat down and watched [porn] movies together and saw the sex scenes, we thought it wasn't right. People would think it was a stunt."

They went on to work with Noe anyway, however, acting opposite each other in his highly controversial Irreversible.
