We've been keeping a close eye on Penélope Cruz's styling chops at the San Sebastián Film Festival to promote her new movie, Venuto al Mondo. So far, the gorgeous Spanish actress has been wowing us with her flair for elegant yet sexy choices in the way of fitted lace sheaths, chic knits, and most recently, a stunning red vintage gown by Versace. To finish off her exquisite look, Penélope accessorized with red satin pumps and a red-and-gold minaudière (both by Ferragamo) and sleek side-swept hair. Get an up close and personal look at all of her beautiful ensembles at the San Sebastián Film festival in the slideshow and tell us which Penélope look is your favorite!
Penelope Cruz struck a variety of funny poses yesterday while on the Rome set of Venuto al Mondo. She threw her hands in the air, gave herself a mustache with her hair, and signaled for everyone to hush during the silly photo shoot with her director Sergio Castellitto. Later on, Penelope changed out of the light dress and into a black suit for more serious scenes with her costar Emile Hirsch. Penelope and Javier Bardem's son Leo is in Italy with them during production on the film, and the family of three was seen enjoying some of the local cuisine just a few days ago. The next set Leo visits may be one of Javier's. The happy new dad just confirmed that he'll star in the next James Bond and shooting that action piece is expected to start later this year.
Penelope Cruz made a low-key arrival to the Rome set of Venuto al Mondo yesterday. She got a good-luck kiss on the forehead from director Sergio Castellitto then took her mark in front of the cameras. This is Penelope's second project to shoot in Italy this year; earlier this Summer, Penelope teamed up again with Woody Allen for his Bop Decameron. Since production wrapped, Woody's film's title has been changed to Nero Fiddled. Woody Allen explained changing Bop Decameron's title saying, "I couldn't believe how few people had heard of The Decameron even in Rome, and the few that did assumed the movie was based on Boccaccio's tales, which it's not. Anyhow, I changed the title to Nero Fiddled, which is the first time I've changed a title since my last-minute switch of Anhedonia to Annie Hall."
Penelope Cruz popped up on the Rome set of Venuto al Mondo today with her costar Emile Hirsch. Their director, Sergio Castellitto, was in on the action too to show both Penelope and Emile exactly what he wanted in the shot. Penelope was also hard at work yesterday in Italy, where production on the film moved following a stint in Bosnia. Her husband, Javier Bardem, temporarily left her side to focus on his humanitarian work with the UN in NYC. There will be more travel for Javier, though, now that a long-rumored role has been confirmed for him. Javier Bardem will play the villain in the upcoming 23rd Bond film, which is rumored to be going by the title Skyfall.
Penelope Cruz stepped out of her trailer on the set of her latest film, Venuto al Mondo, in Rome earlier today. The Cruz-Bardem family has spent a good amount of time in Italy over the past few months since Penelope's filmed two projects there. In July she teamed up with Woody Allen on Bop Decameron and then Penelope, Javier, and their son Leo enjoyed a family vacation along the coast before starting on her latest movie. Their travels may continue in the near future when Javier begins work on Bond 23, rumored to now be titled Skyfall. Javier is reportedly playing the villain this time and production is scheduled for exotic locations around the globe including Istanbul, South Africa, and Scotland.
Penelope Cruz worked late into last night on the Rome set of Venuto al Mondo. The evening shoot was full of dancing and music, with Penelope showing off her fancy footwork for the camera. Production on the film, which is directed by Sergio Castellitto, has moved to Italy after a stint in Sarajevo. The plot of the movie is centered around a family affected by the Bosnian troubles in the 1990s. Penelope's husband, Javier Bardem, was in Sarajevo with her, but he traveled to NYC this week to address the United Nations about a topic that's long been close to his heart. Javier spoke to a decolonization committee about ending the human rights abuses in the Morocco-occupied territories of Western Sahara. Javier, who's making a documentary on the area, said, "The people of the Western Sahara are suffering under repression inside the occupied territory; they are suffering in refugee camps in the Sahara desert, where they have been forgotten for decades." There's lots of casting news for him as well. Javier may star in Despicable Me 2 as a villain, and he's finalizing plans to play the bad guy in the next James Bond movie, too. A tentative title for the next Bond film — the 23rd in the series — has leaked and is said to be called Skyfall.
