Italian movie star Monica Bellucci turned down chances to work with NICOLAS CAGE and John Cusack in Hollywood movies because she didn't want to work while she was pregnant.

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST star is expecting her first child with actor husband Vincent Cassell at the end of next month (SEP04), and admits she wouldn't be capable of making a Hollywood movie.

She says, "When I wake up in the morning, even if I don't do anything, I have the impression that I'm doing something amazing."
