Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz has revealed that she wants to install ropes to swing from in her bedroom. But before boyfriend Javier Bardem gets too excited, Pené said she is only doing this is to remind her of her elaborate song-and-dance routine in her latest movie ‘Nine’.

Despite hurting herself during filming, Pené was distraught when her big dance number came to an end that she started crying. Director Rob Marshall asked if she was disappointed with the scene and Pené replied, “No, no, it’s that it’s over and I loved every second. I want to install ropes in my bedroom so I don’t have to let go of it.”

Pene said the entire movie was an emotional experience for her. “I couldn’t stop crying because I had been doing dance classes and rehearsals for so many months. It’s in the film and it will be there forever, but I don’t get to do it again. I was addicted to dancing!”

Co-star Sophia Loren was equally inconsolable due to the close bond she developed with Pené during shooting. Sophia says, “When it was my last day, she came to my dressing room. She was crying and I was crying. This is the first time I have left a film set crying because we got so upset about leaving each other.”
