Monica Bellucci is officially the oldest Bond girl in Spectre, which opens next month. That is to say she’s the oldest at the time of appearing in a Bond film.
The 51-year-old actress takes the crown away from Honor Blackman, who was 39 when she played Pussy Galore in 1964’s Goldfinger. As you can see, she still looks great.

Bellucci actually prefers to be known as a “Bond Woman” as opposed to a “Bond Girl”.
The synopsis for Spectre (per IMDb) is as follows:
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Spectre also stars Daniel Craig (obviously), Léa Seydoux, Christoph Waltz, and Ralph Fiennes.
Bellucci is also working on a film called On the Milky Road from Emir Kusturica. That’s currently filming.
