Penélope Cruz

heart Penélope Cruz for her curves and her big hair and her crazy accent; She's funny, earthy, European, the opposite of all those dreary American 'stars'. There's something Sophia Loren about her, don't you think?She was just awarded a BAFTA for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which I loved. I watched it twice, on dvd the Shenyang man delivered. She's great with Javier Bardem. The Spanish actors first worked together in the Oscar-nominated Jamon, Jamon, in 1992, and again in Pedro Almodóvar's 1997 Bafta-nominated Live Flesh. I hope she gets her Oscar in the Best Supporting Actress category.
