I thought this was so cute!

Penelope Cruz looks so similar to her sister Monica, she sometimes confuses herself.

The Hollywood beauty shares twin-like facial features with her younger sibling, and Cruz admits she is stunned by how alike they look.

She says, “The other day we were sitting together in the back of the car and I was looking in the rear view mirror and a very strange thing happened: I thought I was looking at my face and it was hers!”

Woody Allen was more interested in a stain on his hand than filming the much-talked about lesbian kiss between Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson.

Spanish beauty Penelope revealed that the director was so concerned about a mark that had mysteriously appeared on his hand that he left the set to go to see a dermatologist.

The director had been filming a scene between Penelope and co-star Scarlett where they kiss in a darkroom for the film Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which premiered last night at London Film Festival’s Sky Movies HD Gala.

“Everyone’s been talking about this kiss between me and Scarlett but on the day all the attention was on Woody and the stain on his hand,” she said.

“Even when we resumed filming he was still looking at it!”

Penelope Cruz said she fell in love with the character she plays in Vicky Cristina Barcelona as she attended the movie’s UK premiere.

The movie, which also stars Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall, is showing as part of the BFI 52nd London Film Festival. It concerns the tangled love lives of Americans abroad in Barcelona.

Cruz plays Maria, the tempestuous ex-wife of a free-spirited artist in the film, which is directed by Woody Allen and was shown at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Cruz, wearing a black L’Wren dress, said: “I fell in love with the character.”

She added that it was “amazing” to work with Allen.

The Sky Gala screening in London’s Leicester Square was being followed by a Sky Gala party in West London.

As the summer blockbuster season fades, the movie industry now moves into the end-of-the-year serious mode in which Academy Award-caliber films are released.

One of the early contenders has to be Elegy, based upon the Philip Roth short novel, The Dying Animal.

Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz lead a talented cast that includes Dennis Hopper, Patricia Clarkson and Peter Sarsgaard. The movie’s explorations of the complexities of love and sex ultimately provide a somber tone despite some witty observations by the Hopper character, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet George O’Hearn.
