12. Penélope Cruz
Penelope reunited with frequent collaborator Pedro Almodovar as they spent much of the Fall promoting their film Broken Embraces. She soon switched gears to join her many female costars in Nine before its holiday release, and at some point found time to film a small cameo in Sex and the City 2. She and boyfriend Javier Bardem appeared to grow more comfortable attending events together, but they still keep their distance on red carpets. Their ease may have something to do with a rumored engagement, but so far the only comment Javier's made on his feelings for her was by sweetly expressing his love at Cannes.
