Penelope Continues to Laugh off Rumors

Penelope continues to joke about the rumors that her and Salma Hayek are lovers. Letterman sat her down last night and brought up the subject in a round about way. Penelope was talking about her love of photography which prompted David to show the audience a few pics that Penelope had taken of Salma for Interview magazine. This of course led to David delving a little further into their relationship. Here's more:

"That day was funny, because we are both very bossy, but that day I was, like, 'Today, I give the orders,'" she said, describing the day of the photo shoot. "So I put her in a swimming pool for hours and hours. And she behaved really well. She listened to everything."

Then Letterman brought out a photo of Hayek and Cruz on the red carpet at an unnamed event. In the shot, the two actresses were facing away from the camera. Noting Cruz's left hand on Hayek's derrière, Letterman said, "Here's somebody giving her the old hi-ho."

"You know what they've been saying because of that picture?" Cruz asked. "We are like sisters and we have some sense of humor. We did that in front of 100 photographers. And the story now is that we are lovers."

She added, "I'm sorry to say that is not the case."

It's great that Penelope can laugh off the whole thing so easily. If anything she seems to be embracing the racy rumors. That's one way to keep people talking! For pics just

I don't see it, I believe they're just close friends. But they'd make a hot couple like Ben and Matt would :-P

FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE All I can say is, if they're gay I wouldn't mind watching.

Ochottie, she is definitely not involved with Almodovar (Director of Volver), he is gay and they are just best friends. I think Penelope looks great, and she is actually a fairly good actress in Spanish/European films, even if her US films suck. I rented Bandidas on DVD the other night, and it is possibly one of the stupidest films I have ever seen. Turned it off after 40 minutes. Pity, because both ladies look great.

I loved her before, and her attitude makes me love her more. **~~Everyone who's anyone has been on sesame street.~~**

she shouldn't laugh them off. she should just smile coyly and say "no comment." it will help sales dramatically.

she looks beautiful her...whatever i say good for her and selma if they really are gay (which i doubt) "stay far from timid, only make moves when your hearts in it and live the phrase sky's the limit."

She looks gorgeous here. Who cares if they are together, and can't girls just be BFF without having everyone accusing them of being lovers? Like Gayle and Oprah. Come on, people, please get a life.

It seems so many actors and actresses have gay rumors about them.

Who effing cares if they are gay? I think if she is not involved with Salma beyond a great friendship, she is def. involved with her director or producer guy from Volver. Do you remember when she couldn't shut up about how amazing he is?

The rumors started after Salma did Frieda and Penelope did that stupid movie with Charlize Therone..once an actor or actress gives a performance where they are gay or bi-sexual and cantains a love scene they tend to be plagued with false rumors. People forget they are actors!

I think it's pretty sad how much the press tries to make a story out of nothing. These 2 have been friends for so long. It's ridiculous. Next thing you know they will be accusing Matt Damon and Be Affleck of being gay lovers!

I never understood the gay rumors for these two women. I just think that they were two forgein actresses that had a lot in common and developed a strong bond. Penople is super classy- Lindsay Lohan should take a lesson from her
