Italian actress Monica Bellucci repeatedly delayed filming of new movie The Brothers Grimm because she couldn't stop laughing during her on-screen sex romps with hunky co-star Matt Damon.

Frustrated director TERRI GILLIAM was forced to re-shoot the steamy scenes between the 30-year-old MATRIX beauty and the BOURNE SUPREMACY star several times because of her constant giggling.

But Bellucci is convinced the lighthearted mood helped her relax during the embarrassing scene.

Bellucci reveals, "I just found him so funny. It actually helped through.

"When you have loves scenes with someone that you never met before, it's difficult. You have to create a nice situation, a good sensibility.

"With him it was easy, he just made me laugh."
