"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."
Penélope Cruz and Johnny Depp popped up at the Ritz Hotel in Moscow this morning at a photo call before the Russian premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The duo are traveling the globe to promote the latest installment of the franchise, and were in LA just last Saturday for a huge Disneyland screening.
Spanish actress Penelope Cruz will arrive in Sarajevo in September for the filming of Venuto al Mondo (Into the World) by director Sergio Castellitto.
The news was published here Tuesday by the daily Avaz, which said the famous actress would remain two months in the Bosnian capital, and that preparations for the filming in Sarajevo are already underway.
The screen drama will feature Cruz as Gemma, a single mother who accompanies her teenage son to present-day Sarajevo, where his dad died while still a young man during the Bosnian conflict.
Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz has revealed that she only knew two phrases in English when she moved to the U.S. to try and make it in the movies – and one of them was ‘I want to work with Johnny Depp’.
The star, who turned 37 last month, revealed that it was her dream to work with the 47-year-old star – and that the only other English words she knew when she arrived in Hollywood were ‘How are you?’
Penelope, who was born in a suburb of Madrid, first worked with Johnny a decade ago in movie Blow and they have remained close friends ever since – so she explained she jumped at the chance to work with him again on Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
She explained: ‘When I first came to America I only knew two phrases in English. One was, “How are you?” and the other was, “I want to work with Johnny Depp.”
When Penélope Cruz signed on to play Angelica in Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides she was excited—and for several very good reasons.
In the movie Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself on an unexpected journey to the fabled Fountain of Youth when a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz) forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane).
First of all, it was her first role in a high-budget action movie. “I love working in Europe and most of the times when I’m working in America, I tend to choose smaller projects with less action, because that’s where I find the most interesting characters,” Cruz says, “but I have to say that here I found both. I found a very interesting character in a movie that is really big and it gave me the opportunity to see how those movies are made. And I love the pirate world because it’s so attractive and so interesting.”
The fourth film in the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides, doesn’t open until May 20, but these four brand new clips, featuring stars Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz and others, should tide fans over.
Today some official wallpapers and new international banner for Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has turned up online, courtesy of IMP Awards. The new design combines the previously-released character posters into one, enormous image.
The film, which opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 20, features the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbosa. New to the franchise are stars Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Kevin R. McNally, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, and Sam Claflin.
Penélope Cruz has revealed she has caught the musical bug after starring in 2009 film Nine.
The actress said she and husband Javier Bardem can’t get enough of musical series Glee, and added that she would jump at the chance to flex her own pipes again.
She told Entertainment Weekly: ‘It’s actually the only thing that I watch on television. Gwyneth [Paltrow] was amazing. Once you’ve done a musical you always want to do it again. I would love to do more musicals, in TV or film. Not on Broadway, because I’m not brave enough to do that yet. But I love musicals.’
For the past few weeks a lot of promotion for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has been gearing up. Such as the new full length trailer and posters. Check out the posters in the gallery and watch the trailer after the jump.
The fourth film in the Walt Disney Pictures/Jerry Bruckheimer Films franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides puts Jack on a quest with Angelica (Cruz) to find the Fountain of Youth. On his path, he crosses zombies, seductive mermaids and the fearsome Blackbeard (McShane). Pirates sails into 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 20.
