The sexy siren Penelope Cruz has reached 40 years of age today. April 28th is her birthday and she is celebrating it with style. Despite 40 being considered an age when one is over the hill, Penelope still has a lot of reserves left in her to fight back against any signs of old age.
Way back in 2002 she was termed the world’s 7th sexiest actress. That is not a small feat. Basically she is a Spanish actress yet she learnt Italian for the sake of a role in a movie. She got her real break in Vanilla Sky with Tom Cruise though.
The movie shows Tom risking everything for Penelope. It set her on her career towards movie superstardom. And she has literally shook up all of Hollywood with her remarkable performances.
Penelope Cruz became friends with Tom for a while. And she even had a fling with costar Matthew McConaughey. Yet today she is happily married with Javier Bardem and the two have a son and a daughter.
And the even more exciting news is that Penelope Cruz may get to play the role of Bond girl on the set of 24. The villain is a man selected from 12 Years a Slave. This is none other than Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Yet the Bond girl is slated to be Penelope herself. At least the Hollywood studios have their eyes set on her. After Halle Berry and Denise Richards, it is Penelope that may play the suave seductress in the future Bond series. And Daniel Craig is to return as the Aston Martin driving double agent who likes his martinis shaken not stirred.
Penelope will be quite the ideal partner to match Craig’s rugged masculinity. And with her stylish moves and delicate linguistic skills, she will light up the screen for movie buffs around the world.
