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.”




Penelope Cruz looked every bit of the Spanish Enchantress that she is at the world premiere of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, held in Anaheim, Calif.

Cruz wore a stunning off-the-shoulder black gown, embroidered with jet crystal jewels and feathers was a custom Marchesa creation. Chopard jewels, a high ponytail and nude lips completed her look.






A few days ago, Penélope was in California for the Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Press Conference.




Miss Cruz was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on May 3, 2011 to promote the release of Pirates of the Caribbean. Check out her interview below!

Penélope Cruz “screamed” when she was offered a role in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

The Spanish actress had previously worked with the movie’s star Johnny Depp on Blow and director Rob Marshall on Nine and was overjoyed to be given the chance to team with the pair again.

She said: “Rob and I were eating together and he turned to me and said, ‘I have this question to ask you but I don’t know if I’m brave enough to ask as you may say ‘No’.

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.

Check out the other scenes here.

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.’

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.
