Spanish actor Penelope Cruz is truly one of God's gifts to humanity. At the tender age of 35, she has already racked up an impressive string of award-winning (or nominated roles) in foreign language films like Jamón, Jamón, La Niña de tus ojos, Belle époque, Don't Move, Broken Embraces, Volver and All About My Mother. American films that have earned her additional acclaim include Blow, Vanilla Sky, Vicky Cristina Barcelona (Best Supporting Oscar), Captain Corelli's Mandolin, Gothika, Bandidas, Sahara and the recent CGI-animated film, G-Force (voice only).
I spotted this sexy photo of Cruz (from the upcoming musical film, Nine; left) on MSN this morning and immediately displaced my planned selection in favor of this ravishing Latina. With the recent life-change that has left me happily single, I've embarked on a blond quest, but I've just gotta tell you kind folks that the only other femmes on the planet that could easily dissuade me from acquiring a hot blond companion are Latin lovelies like Ms. Cruz. Now if only I can convince her that I'm a better option for her than Javier Bardem.
