It might be difficult to believe, but Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is already 43 years old, guys! We know, when we looked that up before writing this, we were just as shocked as you probably are, because the woman doesn't look a day over, oh, say 30 or so. Must be those timeless looks of hers, huh?
Anyway, after the amazement about Penelope's age wore off, we had better things to worry about — like ogling over some of her latest pictures that she posted onto her Instagram account. The photos, which were shot by Mert Alas for Esquire UK, definitely don't disappoint in the gorgeous department, with Cruz showing that she very much has it by wearing multiple body-hugging outfits and, in one, even losing all her clothes and barely covering herself up. It's things like this that we need more of to get the week started.
Married to fellow actor Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are a power couple that seem to have it all going for them. And, naturally, we're a little bit jealous of Bardem for being able to steal the heart of Penelope. After all, the brunette beauty has long been a crush of ours ever since she starred in movies like Blow and Vanilla Sky, among others.
Speaking about her acting, here's what Cruz said about how she got into the career, via Interview magazine:
"I think I always wanted to do it. And I was dancing ballet for so many years, since I was four. It was like a desire or necessity to communicate feelings and emotions. Sometimes I feel we express more with dancing or acting or painting than with words. My parents took me to dance lessons because I had so much energy. I was a very intense child."
Full of energy and still as beautiful as they come, Penelope Cruz has always, and will always, continue to make our knees weak for her. And these latest photos of the Spanish beauty are just further proof of that!
