Named Penelope Cruz Sanchez, the Spanish actress was born on April 28, 1974 in Alcobendas, Madrid. The daughter of Encarna Sanchez, a hairdresser and personal manager and Eduardo Cruz, a retailer and auto mechanic, Penelope showed glimpses of her talent by re-enacting TV commercials.

Penelope’s initial foray into entertainment however, was not acting. Rather, she dreamed of being a dancer, studying ballet for nine years in Spain’s National Conservatory.

When she was 15, the acting bug bit her when she was selected over 300 others in a talent agency audition. This led to roles on TV, music videos and later the movies in Spain. Her first film was El Labertino Griego or The Greek Labyrinth in 1993. She was also cast in the film Belle Epoque which won several Goya awards, Spain’s answer to the Oscars. This served as the foundation to Penelope’s prolific career in Spanish cinema. She was already making several films per year when she was cast in Carne Tremula or Live Flesh in 1997 working with director Pedro Almodovar who would be instrumental in taking Penelope to international stardom.

Her first international hit was in Almodovar’s Todo Sobre Mi Madre or All About My Mother in 1999. This caught the notice of Hollywood and Penelope eventually found herself working on Woman On Top in 2000, Blow with Johnny Depp and Matt Damon, and All The Pretty Horses by Billy Bob Thornton. She would also star in Vanilla Sky with Tom Cruise, a remake of Abre Los Ojos, a Spanish film in which Penelope also played the lead actrees. She also appeared in Bandidas with her best friend Salma Hayek.

In 2008, Penelope starred in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, as Maria Elena, a mentally unstable ex-wife. This role won her a second Academy Award nomination along with the BAFTA, the Independent Spirit Award, the National Board of Reviw Award and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress. She also took home the Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild nomination for best actress.
