"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."
Cruz’s allure has been undeniable since she starred in Pedro Almodóvar’s Jamon Jamon (1992) as a teenager, but when she reunited with the auteur for 2006′s Volver, the director captured her beauty at its most ripe. She instills her curvy heroine with both strength and vulnerability, and when she treats her restaurant’s customers with a heartfelt ballad, her entire being radiates.
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!
Note: Show highlight above. Watch the full episode here or here.
Miss Cruz will will appear on Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday February 4th (today). I can’t wait for this one! She was also on Jay Leno last night. There are no videos up yet, but they should be coming soon and I’ll be back with the video of Pe.
