Penelope Cruz took home a special souvenir after filming new Woody Allen film Vicky Cristina Barcelona – a pair of the legendary director’s spectacles.

The actress – who stars opposite boyfriend Javier Bardem and Scarlett Johansson in the Golden Globe Award-winning flick – admits she was shocked when Woody awarded her with the memento, because it was so personal.

She tells British movie magazine Total Film, “Actually I got a souvenir. I got his glasses as a present.

“And it’s my treasure. I love those glasses. He only has two pairs and he gave me one pair.”
