Maria Bello was lucky to share the film set with the best actors ever known in Hollywood. This time her partner was blue eyed Mel Gibson with his winning smile. The film got mostly positive reviews from critics and spectators, although most of them mention, the plot of “Payback” is too primitive. At the same time they call it “classical American action film” with its active scenes and lots of guns. Maria Bello was finally noticed. She got her winning ticket.

Secret Window

The success of Payback was followed by several years of ordinary movies. Some of them got modest success, the others were flops. In 2004 Maria Bello got a chance to remind about herself to her fans. Again she had great partner in the movie. Legendary Johnny Depp was invited to the movie by its film director, David Koepp, to act as a husband of Maria Bello’s heroine. The film, based on the novel of Stephen King, had an interesting plot. But it got modest critical acclaim. The play of the actors was cold “too childish”.


Maria Bello got older and much more experienced as an actress. That’s why her play in the series “Touch” was great. Her heroine, Lucy Robbins, was natural, although TV series was not so successful and was on air just within one season.
