Penélope Cruz remembers her n-de at 18 in ‘Jamón, Jamón’
The actress remembered her famous first n-de in front of the cameras and assures that everyone was very respectful and aware that she was only 18 years old.
It is not easy to know the almost always elusive, at least with the Spanish press, Penélope Cruz. Why do you give so few interviews, Pe? Fortunately, her international commitments with the promotion of the series ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’, where she plays her sister Donatella, allow us to see her from unexpected angles. For example, her in a s-xy and almost n-ked shot, impossible to photograph in Spain, but which she showed to the British edition of ‘Esquire’.
Half-covered with a blue curtain or skillfully dressed in a corset, Penelope is more beautiful than ever and light years away from the role she plays in the new version of ‘Murder on the Orient Express’: that of a missionary. In the interview, Cruz recalls her first n-de scene, when she was only 18 years old, in ‘Jamón, Jamon’ (1992), precisely with her current husband, Javier Bardem.
“The truth is that I had no desire to film these scenes at all, but I did it”, recalls Penelope Cruz. “Everyone was very respectful and aware that I was only 18. I remember on the last day of filming, I couldn’t stop crying. I feared the worst: ‘What if I didn’t make another film?’ The feeling was devastating.” Fortunately, precisely the opposite happened: she became the Spanish actress with the greatest global reach.
