You may have never heard of today’s Crush of the Day, Violante Placido, but that’s about to change.

The Italian actress-singer starred opposite George Clooney in the ‘The American’ in 2010. More recently, Violante Placido played Nadya – alongside Nicolas Cage’s Johnny Blaze – in the 2012 film ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,’ which opened this past weekend.

We’re sure you’ll see more of this sexy Italian talent in future films. Until then, we can show you a lot of her in these pictures.
