Cover Girl | Penelope Cruz

24 03 2009

penelope-cruz-vanity-fair-6Fresh off her Oscar win in February for “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” magazine in her native country of Spain can’t get enough of their sultry countrywoman, Penelope Cruz.

The sexy actress adorns the cover of two publications, Spanish Vogue as well as the Spanish version of Vanity Fair. The 34-year old Spanish beauty made history in her country with her Best Actress Oscar becoming the first female winner and second Hispanic actress since Rita Moreno in 1961.

Long before Cruz dazzled American audiences in films such as “Blow,” “Vanilla Sky” and her award-winning turn in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” she became a superstar in her native land starring in “Jamón, Jamón,” “La Niña de tus ojos,” and “Belle époque.” Known in Spain for her successful collaboration with director Pedro Almodóvar, the two reunited in 2007 for the emotional drama, “Volver.”

And think, Tom Cruise chose Katie Holmes over “Cruz Control.” As they say, one man’s trash is definitely another man’s treasure!
