It was divulged by Penelope Cruz that her mother, Encarna, has offered the best advice to her especially during the time when she was really saddened after portraying the role that required her to do nude scenes in her first film ‘Jamon Jamon’.
It was the first and only moment in the life of the 37-year-old actress to do some bare scenes in the movie where Javier Bardem also starred in.
Cruz was not able to deal with the nude scenes of her first movie ‘Jamon Jamon’ well but stated that her mother understood her frustrations. She cut her hair short and never did any love or kissing scenes at all for a long time.
Most of the people have told Cruz that she is putting her career at risk but she just ignored them and instead followed what her heart desired.
Her mother was at ease after Cruz came up with the decision and she even gave her inspiration to move forward and do some other things.
She had come to the realization now that the person who directed the movie ‘Jamon Jamon’, Bigas Luna, was just giving her the opportunity which she is now grateful of. It was also the time when she first encountered Javier on that film whom she considered as one of the best actors in the world.
Cruz has also stated how much she is enjoying of being a wonderful woman who is appreciated by other people.
A couple of months back, Penélope Cruz was named as the new face of Lancôme perfume and I just discovered her commercial just now. She looks so stunning!

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.
Pe has now left France and is back in Madrid.
Penélope Cruz and her sister Monica tower over Tokyo in new billboards for designer Japanese band Samantha Thavasa.
The 36-year-old Oscar-winner and her sister, 33, look stunning on the 100ft-high billboard above the Samantha Thavasa flagship store near Harajuku.
Another ad above the store shows Cruz with her latest handbag design for the trendy Japanese company.
Beyonce, Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton and Jennifer Lopez have all previously helped design bags for the label.
On her birthday, a few days ago, Penélope was photographed on the set of a photoshoot for an upcoming Lancôme project.
Today, Lancôme has announced that the Oscar-winning actress will be the new ambassadress for the company’s fragrance Trésor, starting later this year.
Yesterday on her birthday, Pe was spotted in Paris, France doing what appears to be a photoshoot for Lancôme. Celebrity-Gossip.net has some photos for your viewing. In the snaps she’s photographed with Mario Testino on the balcony of the Hotel Crillon.
Currently, Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts are spokesmodels for the brand, I’m not sure what Penélope’s duties will be as a model or when her ads might start appearing but this is very exciting since her duties with Mango ended and I’m ready to see more regular Cruz ads, in addition to her L’Oréal stuff. Lancôme Paris is a luxury beauty brand. Owned by L’Oréal since 1964, Lancôme is part of the Luxury Products division, which offers skin care, fragrances, and makeup at higher-end price points.
