Penelope Cruz has revealed she acted as a go-between passing messages between two legendary directors while making her latest film.
The star shot Broken Embraces with fellow Spaniard Pedro Almodovar at the same time as making Vicky Cristina Barcelona with Woody Allen.
She said: “It was good to be able to pass each of them messages – they seem to like each other very much.”
The movie got an explosive reaction from the crowd, another extended standing ovation and reaction from the earlier press screening was also buoyant. Many have noted that the noir-ish tale of love and jealousy is a darker tale for the filmmaker, but the movie also has many moments of humor.

Yesterday Penélope was in Cannes for the Broken Embraces photocall, press conference and premiere. She was stunning as always, at the photocall wearing a nude number and for the premiere she wore a lilac chiffon draped strapless Marchesa Fall 2009 gown, with an embroidered bodice and her hair swept softly back. Such a goddess!
The gallery has now been updated with over 500 images from all of these events. Enjoy!
The Cannes Film Festival’s photocall for Broken Embraces was just underway. Next it will be followed by a press conference and the premiere tonight. Check back for tons of photos later today!
Last night in Cannes Penelope Cruz hosted a Domino contest in aid of Bono’s Red charity. It seems she is feel better despite some food poisoning earlier that day. Never the less she looked stunning in a white gown!
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.

Even the biggest stars aren’t immune to getting hit by stomach bugs it seems. Penelope Cruz had to miss out on promoting her upcoming musical Nine in Cannes Monday, sidelined by “some sort of food poisoning.”
In France to premiere her movie Broken Embraces, which is directed by Pedro Almodóvar, she was slated to join movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in presenting a trailer and a teaser for Nine, but fell ill.
Weinstein passed on the bad news to a select group of journalists: “Tomorrow night is her premiere for her movie. She is getting better and is seeing a doctor right now.”
We want to wish Miss Cruz a speedy recovery!
The summer campaign for Mango is now available, and it’s absolutely stunning, as if we’d expect anything less!

“I’ve been obsessed with his cinema since I was a little girl, especially now, because now it is also a personal experience. He is a very important person in my life, not only in my career but also he is one of my best friends. If someone told me that I can only choose one director to work with for the rest of my life. It’s absolutely clear for me that it would be with him.” – Penélope Cruz
