Newsflash: Penelope Cruz Is Very Pregnant, Still Hot

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are having another hot baby together, in case you forgot. I sorta did – I forgot all about them, in fact. But they’re still out there, traveling and being beautiful and going to music festivals in the like. That photo above is from the Los Veranos de la Villa Music Festival in Madrid this past Saturday. I’d say there’s a baby in there!

Apparently, she’s due any day now – let’s hope she can hold off til after Kate Middleston gives birth so we can get excited for the SPANISH royal baby.  Also, as an aside, I love that Javier looks sort of homeless in this picture. I would probably mistake him for a hobo if it weren’t for the iPhone and, you know, the Penelope Cruz bit of it all.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem Are Having Another Hot Baby

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are hot, hot, hot (that’s caliente, for our Latina audience) and the best way to perpetuate hotness is by procreating, thereby passing it on to future generations. Then again, it could go the other way and the hotness from the parents could cancel one another out, creating one fugly child. Considering they’ve already done this successfully once before, though, we’ll assume the new baby is going to be muy guapo/a. Shut up, I have to put four years of Spanish to use somehow.

Seriously, though, how adorable was their 2-year-old son Leonardo when he was little? Not that you can really see him all that well in the photo, but oh well:

People broke the news, while also sharing Cruz’s comments on how she was affected by motherhood:

“Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment – when you see that face, you are transformed forever.”

Funny, I was transformed forever just last night when I tried the new Kit Kats with peanut butter. Different strokes, different folks. Congrats to the happy couple!

Oh Snap, Penelope Cruz is Having a Baby!

Reps for both Penelope Cruz and new husband Javier Bardem have confirmed just in the past few hours that the recent Pirates of the Caribbean star is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and is four-and-a-half months along. Bardem, obviously, is the father. Otherwise I highly doubt that his PR people would be confirming this pregnancy. But hey. Stranger things have happened.

I know a lot of you guys aren’t huge fans of Penny, but you know what? I am. And I think that she’s going to make a great mom. She’s super hot, talented, and she does good things for humanity. I totally dig her. So, congratulations, parents. And for all of you haters out there, here’s a gallery of the hottest Penelope photos — and I dare you to say otherwise.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem Are Engaged. Maybe.


If the NY Post is to be believed, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are set to tie the knot.  Remember how many times we were told that Jennifer Aniston was marrying Vince Vaughn/ex-husband Brad Pitt/Jason Lewis/Courteney Cox/the sperm donor of the twins she was expecting … and it’s never true.

I think that engagement rumors are the natural follow-up to pregnancy rumors.  Of course, Penelope is denying all the baby rumors and I’ve posted a picture taken of her on September 11th so you can all see how totally and completely not pregnant she is.  Ahem.

It was only August when Cruz was saying that she wasn’t sure that she believed in marriage, which could be a quote she threw out to throw the media off her track.

In conclusion, it’s way too taxing to try and figure out what’s true and what’s false with these two.  I highly suspect that there could be a head crowning out of Penelope Cruz’s snatch and we’ll still be hearing that there’s “no truth to that rumor”.

It’s Actually Happening: Julia Roberts Begins Filming “Eat, Pray, Love”


Listen, I don’t harbor Wendie’s all-consuming hatred for Julia Roberts, but Eat, Pray, Love is one of my favorite books ever, and I’d never pictured Julia Roberts in the lead role. I was thinking of someone younger, someone more playful, more malleable. Maybe a Kate Hudson or a Rachel McAdams or a Charlize Theron. Definitely not Julia Roberts.

It occurs to me that what I’m doing here is exactly what sometimes bothers me about my own readership — I found a book that I love, that I relate to, that speaks to me, and of course now I want the main character to be exactly like me, and I’m upset that she might not be. It’s something I see in the (fabulous!) hate/complaint emails I get from my own readers. I read why they’re upset, and then it occurs to me that, mostly, they’re disappointed because I’ve said or done something that makes me less similar to them. This is what I’m doing here. I’m disappointed, because I wanted Elizabeth Gilbert to be just like me, and that’s not how Julia Roberts is going to play her.

Anyway. The bright side? Javier Bardem is going to play Felipe. SWOON! I hope he’s all like “HEADS OR TAILS LIZ???” and then shoots Julia Roberts in the head.
