"The first movies I did in English, I was struggling more with English. I'd studied French before, so in the beginning, I was learning my dialogue almost phonetically. But all of them come from me. I would never make less of these experiences. All of them mean a lot and taught me."
Coverage from the 16th Annual Screen Actors’ Guild Awards has been uploaded to the gallery. Pictures from the red carpet, some inside audience shots (some very adorable ones with Drew Barrymore and Meryl Streep to name a few) and caps from the show itself and a brief red carpet video were added. I have also posted the clips below. I wish to thank The Nine Blog for the video from the ceremony. You must check out the super sweet clip I mentioned with Penélope and her Nine ladies!
CBS’s 60 Minutes has posted an amazing new piece of Penélope Cruz. In the rare interview, the Spanish starlet and Academy Award Winner, opens up about her life, career and childhood (also includes rare images of her as young girl!). Charlie Rose reports. While I do not like how the reporter goes about some parts of the interview, Pe remains poised and intelligent. It is truly a must see for her fans! Also worth noting – the video features some behind the scenes footage of Penélope and Pedro being shot for the Vanity Fair Hollywood Portfolio (usually the March issue)!
At 35, Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is one of the most sensual and photographed women in the world. She has won critical acclaim, not only in Europe, but now, also in Hollywood. Last year she took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress — the first Spanish actress ever to win an Academy Award.
How did this versatile performer from a working class suburb of Madrid become this generation’s Sophia Loren?
In part, it could be by turning in performances like the one she gives playing Carla, the seductive mistress, in the movie Nine – her first time singing and dancing in a film.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Cruz said she trained for three months to do a number in the movie.
She told Rose, “I had so much fun.”
And Cruz’s enjoyment shows in her provocative performance.
Penelope Cruz has it all: pin-up looks, honest-to-god talent and an Oscar as a spectacularly desirable cherry on top. Now she stars in Rob Marshall’s musical Nine, as the mistress to Daniel Day Lewis’ Italian filmmaker. We talked to Cruz in London recently about her latest bespangled role…
On Wednesday, Oprah will be airing the encore broadcast special with the Nine cast. She chats with Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson and Marion Cotillard about their new musical. Be sure to tune in if you missed its entirety the first time around!
Tune in to watch all of the stars walk the red carpet for the New York Premiere of the Golden Globe-nominated film Nine, including Kate Hudson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Judi Dench, Fergie, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and more!
I am sorry for not being her to update Penelope-Cruz.org during this amazing promotion time for Penelope (Nine) buts it due to my personal life at this moment. However I will hopefully be back in a few more weeks and can bring you all the latest.
To briefly keep up, check Wire Image for the latest pictures of events, and watch two of her latest interviews with David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey below!
A rehearsal montage from the forthcoming musical Nine has just been released. Put out via Yahoo! Movies, the two-minute video features a number of scenes from the film intercepting footage of the rehearsals for the song-and-dance numbers. Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Stacy Ferguson aka Fergie, Marion Cotillard and Nicole Kidman are some of actresses seen.
A few days ago the Nine trailer was released! You can watch it in glorious high definition here. I have to say I’m super excited, all the ladies look fantastic and especially Miss Cruz looks to die for! Nine hits North American theatres on November 25, 2009.
Los abrazos rotos aka Broken Embraces is opening on Spain the 18th of March and there has begun some promotion for the movie including that of new stills, a new trailer and a short film La Concejala antropófaga, Almodóvar explains the short is a spin off of a small character from Broken Embraces. Furthermore TVE debuted exclusive footage for the upcoming movie on Informe Semanal (Spanish equivalent show for CBS 60 minutes) recently. You can view a little preview of what was shown and captures of that in the gallery. Also view the trailer after the break too. Lastly thanks to Riikka for the caps from La Concejala antropófaga.
Pe was on two talk shows the past few days, Leno and Ellen. Both interviews were so hilarious! View them below.
On Jay Leno one of the funniest moment was when Penélope was learning english and went into a hair salon and said she wanted a blow job instead of her hair blown dry. Ellen DeGeneres played pictionary with her and acted out how Penélope will react if she loses. Very funny must-see clips!
