The 53-year-old left fans shaken and stirred after her couple of scenes with Craig in the latest James Bond movie.
But being such a megastar, what is the incumbent 007 really like on a personal level?
According to Entertainment Inquirer, Monica revealed he’s actually rather shy, but she appreciates that.
The Italian actress said: “He’s in James Bond movies, but he also did amazing intimate films. He’s very polite.”
Monica, who hopes to return for Bond 25, continued: “He has this masculinity and, at the same time, he’s very shy. I like that very much.”
Her words echo that of Donald Mowat, Craig’s personal makeup artist, who spoke exclusively with Express.co.uk last year.
Having been alongside the 49-year-old star on number of films, he said: “He’s just a remarkable man.
“We do have a great friendship and I think a tremendous connection. I just so enjoy working with him, he’s really I lovely person.”
Mowat added: “It really was tremendous [working with him on Skyfall and Spectre]. I think he and I have a unique connection and share a lot of interests and similarities.
“It’s a really great working relationship because he really just lets me do what I do and it fits; it works.”
