"Growing up, Monica was the peaceful one and I was the impossible one. I was very rebellious about everything. I also had a lot of energy. Thank God my parents took me to a ballet school every day, because there was no way I could sit in my house."
On April 1, 2011 Penélope Cruz was honored on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. She called the unveiling of her pink granite star “a very special day that I will always remember.”
“Every time I look at that star, I will see the names of all the people that have helped me make many of my dreams a reality,” she said at the unveiling attended by a large crowd, including her husband Javier Bardem and friend, Johnny Depp.
Cruz, 36, thanked her parents, siblings, Bardem and their newborn son, “for making me happy every day.”
Fans of Captain Jack Sparrow can catch a glimpse of the rugged swashbuckler all cleaned up and moonlighting as actor Johnny Depp at the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, happening May 7 at Disneyland.
Depp, along with co-stars Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane are expected to attend the “black carpet” event, a dinner soiree anchored by an outdoor 3D screening of the film. Watch out for flying swords!
Tickets for the premiere are a wild $1,000, though all proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Those who can’t shell out that type of cash can still try to see the celebrities by purchasing a ticket to the park and lining up ridiculously early.
From Disney blog Inside the Magic:
Admission to Disneyland on May 7 allows guests to stand on the sidewalks of Main Street USA. Disneyland gates will open at 6:30 am that day, at which time guests will be able to line up at the red carpet (black carpet!) to wait for the events to begin. No saving spaces will be allowed. The Mickey & Friends Parking Structure will open at 5:30 am on May 7th for Guests to park. Guests will not be encouraged to line up at the Disneyland Main Gate prior to 5:30 am.
The Cruz/Bardem duo was spotted in the audience of the Oscar telecast a few times throughout the evening. They looked to be enjoying themselves although Javier Bardem lost the Best Actor award to Colin Firth and his film Biutiful which was up for Best Foreign Language film was defeated by Denmark’s In a Better World.
Here are some details regarding Cruz’s stunning return to the red carpet look!
One month after welcoming a baby boy, Penelope Cruz dazzled on the red carpet at Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Walking hand-in-hand with her Oscar-nominated husband Javier Bardem, Cruz, 36, showed off her enviable figure in a curve-hugging red L’Wren Scott design. The new mom accessorized her awards show ensemble with yellow oval and pear shaped chandelier earrings and a pink sapphire ring, both by Chopard.
It is Cruz’s first red carpet appearance since she gave birth to their first child last month in L.A., reportedly named Leo Encinas.
Although the Spanish superstar couple have remained fairly mum about their new family, Bardem couldn’t help but gush while accepting a Goya Award in his native Spain Feb. 13.
“I dedicate [this award] to my wife and son for awakening my heart and smile every day,” Bardem, 41, said.
Penélope Cruz made her first public appearance since giving birth tonight at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California. Her husband Javier Bardem is nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Biutiful. The talented couple look gorgeous! The first photos of Penélope have been added to the gallery.
More details regarding her look will be added as it becomes available. And good luck to Javier tonight!
Penélope Cruz discreetly attended the Cannes Film Festival this year. She was mostly in support of boyfriend Javier Bardem who’s new film Biutiful was premiering. She attended the film’s screening by slipping in a secret entrance and not walking the red carpet but was spooted inside with Javier and later photographed exiting. And yesterday she attended the Palme d’Or Award Ceremony which closes the festival.
On the 9th day, May 20th, she also helped raise $333,000 for the earthquake-stricken nation of Haiti by auctioning off her designer dresses which aide the Jenkins-Penn Haitian relief organization. The Spanish actress stepped out in a gorgeous red wrap dress and silver shoes to mark the occasion. One celeb that really came up trump for the auction was Pe’s good friend, Salma Hayek who donated the first ever Gucci Couture dress, which she wore to day one of the Cannes film festival.
Although there is a good bit of paparazzi candids of her from Cannes, I obviously will not be posting these more intrusive ones as Penélope tried very hard at not being photographed so I wish to respect her privacy. I did however add a couple of shots I felt were okay.
