You have reached Captivating Cruz, a fan site dedicated to Penélope Cruz. Penélope is an Academy Award winning actress best known for her performance in Volver and most recently, Elegy, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and the upcoming Nine. The purpose of Captivating Cruz is to keep updated on all the latest in the world of the amazing Miss Cruz while remaining respectful of her personal life. Malicious gossip, trashy journalism and paparazzi photos – unless on the set of a project – have no place on this site because we wish to respect Pe’s right to her privacy.

Captivating Cruz was started by two ladies totally captivated by the talent and beauty of this Spanish actress. Mycah, 20, is from the US while Riikka, 24, is Finnish born. We were both fans of Penélope Cruz for years and wanted to do our own little tribute to show our appreciation. Unfortunately, Riikka dropped out from the site in November due to her being busy with other commitments.
