Penelope Cruz is the sexiest woman alive

penelope cruz

Penelope Cruz is beautiful, without a doubt, and she’s talented, too. No one would deny that she’s an all-around lovely lady… but is she the sexiest woman alive? Esquire thinks so, as they’ve given her the title and seem quite sure of it.

Here’s a bit on what Penelope had to say about her long and successful career:

“I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties,” Cruz told Esquire. “I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist — you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less interested now. For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing — how could I call it? A plan.”

Well, there ya go.

I don’t know if I’d say Penelope Cruz is the sexiest woman alive, but how can anyone make such a definitive declaration? Taste is subjective, so it could go any way. She is hot, though, I’ll give her that. What do you think? Who’s the sexiest woman alive to you?

Newsflash: Penelope Cruz Is Very Pregnant, Still Hot

penelope cruz

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!

Penelope Cruz Used to Be A Cat Lady, Is Still Gorgeous

Let me just get this out of the way:  I don’t care about Penelope Cruz.  I’m not saying that she’s a bad person, and I’m not saying that she’s not mind-numbingly pretty, I’m just saying that in this world of Biebers and Lohans and Pattinsons, I simply don’t have enough room in my heart for every single celebrity.

That being said, Penelope just did the June issue of Vogue, and in addition to her lovely photo shoot, she also managed to say something that might get her a pass to my heart:

When Cruz first moved to Los Angeles, she spoke little English and lived in a tiny hotel room she shared only with cats. Cats, plural. “I was very lonely,” she says. “I would find cats in the street and take them with me. I raised a lot of cats in that period.”

Oh, Penelope.  You were a cat lady?  I love that, I sincerely do. Can’t you just see her hoarding cats in some rundown hotel, nursing poor little strays back to health and confiding all her thoughts, hopes, and dreams to them?

Welcome to my Good List, Penny!

The New Pirates of the Caribbean Trailer is Here

And though I’m pretty excited, I’m also kind of nervous at the moment because my garbage collectors literally just arrived, on this windy, windy day, and they’e gonna be so ticked when they see all of the packing peanuts in my trash receptacle. WINDY.

Anyway, the trailer for the long-awaited fourth installation of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is here, and a lot of people have mixed reviews about it. Me, I think Johnny Depp (and Geoffrey Rush, of course) are totally the faces of the Pirates movies, but there are a shit ton of fans out there who refuse to see the movie a) because the Keira Knightley/Orlando Bloom love story won’t be addressed, or b) they can’t stand to listen to Penelope Cruz’s God-awful accent for two-and-a-half-plus hours (you know these movies are always well over 150 minutes).

I’m excited about it anyway. I love the movies, I’ve loved the ride in Disney World since I first went on it over seventeen years ago, and I think Penelope Cruz is actually rather pleasing (unlike the really awful looks I’m getting from my trashmen as I sit here on the front porch, trying to make myself smaller and smaller).

What about you guys, are you over the Pirates saga, or will you be queueing up on May 20th when it’s finally released?

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 to Star Alongside Johnny Depp in Latest Pirates Installment


Penelope Cruz sure has a reason to celebrate these days, and I’m not just talking because she’s one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever seen — Cruz gets to reprise a side-by-side role starring with Johnny Depp in the latest edition of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Reps for both Cruz and the Pirates franchise have finally confirmed that the actress will take a lead in the upcoming movie.

The flick goes by title Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2011. According to the film’s IMDB, the only returning characters will be Depp and Geoffrey Rush, who plays Barbosa. Reps for Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley have confirmed that neither will return for the fourth Pirates edition.

Naturally, Cruz will be a minor love interest for Depp’s character, Jack Sparrow, and I really couldn’t be more pleased. If these two are anything like the way they presented themselves in Blow, we’re going to have a hard time concentrating on the movie’s plot — the chemistry between two of the hottest people in Hollywood, steaming up the Caribbean will be enough of a distraction itself.

I’ve always been a fan of Penelope Cruz and her acting and philanthropic ways, even if she did date that other, psycho “Cruise” and I wish her luck in her latest cinema endeavor.
