Penelope Cruz “Is Not in Talks to Be a Bond Girl”
Filed Under: News & Rumors

Penelope Cruz won’t be following in the footsteps of former Bond girls Halle Berry and Denise Richards, a production source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Penelope is not in talks to be a Bond girl in a James Bond movie,” the insider says. “The stories are totally false.”

The casting rumors began June 2 when Yahoo UK reported that the 39-year-old Academy Award winner was in negotiations to film the 24th installment of the James Bond series next summer. Sources told the website that producers “had tried to get Penelope before, but she has never been available because of other commitments.”

Though the Spanish star won’t be the next Bond girl, Cruz is no stranger to big movie franchises. In 2011, she starred opposite Johnny Depp in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She next appears in The Counselor (in theaters Oct. 25) with Bardem, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz.

The actress, who has a 2-year-old son named Leo, is currently pregnant with her second child.

Rumour: Penelope Cruz Already Set As “Bond Girl” For Next Film
Filed Under: News & Rumors

It’s looking more and more likely that Sam Mendes will direct not only the next Bond movie but the next two. Showbiz 411 say that he’s:

the definite director of Bond 24 and most likely Bond 25.

- and they have a pretty good track record when they’re prepared to stick their neck out like this.

So is the double duty because those oft-discussed plans to link the next two films are alive and well? That seems to make a certain amount of sense.

What seems more of a stretch, perhaps, is a new report at Yahoo Movies this afternoon. They seem to be jumping the gun on the next Bond picture’s casting, I’d say, as according to them, Penelope Cruz is already set to become:

the oldest ever Bond girl.

Because she’s 40 and will be 41 by the time production starts. Which isn’t very old, really, is it? But I guess that’s how these things work. If by “these things” you mean the sexist, ageist entertainment industries, which I did.

I don’t know why we can’t count Judi Dench, anyhow. What’s the difference between a Bond girl and a woman in a Bond film? And if there is a difference, why are some women in that Bond girl ghetto in the first place?

I think Cruz is great, and she’s certainly got the poster-ready, cover girl look that “these things” feed on, so it’s not that I think she’s an unbelievable choice, more that I’m sceptical about any choice actually having been made as yet.

Though… well, maybe they needed to get the casting locked down early for some reason. It’s interesting, because there are rumours going around about what the next film might entail and…

We’ll dig into them.
Bond 24 is likely to start shooting at some point next year, though nothing is official yet. Watch this space for more.

Penélope Cruz appears in second part of Lindex’s spring campaign
Filed Under: News & Rumors

Finnish-owned label Lindex has released imagery from the second push for its spring 2013 season, featuring actress Penélope Cruz.
The first part of the campaign, which showed Cruz in casual and red-carpet settings, broke on April 24.
This latest campaign sees Cruz wearing her favourite items in a home environment.
The company says this part of the collection has a Latino inspiration, with neutral colours (khaki, black, grey, white) offset by pepper green and mandarin red. The patterns include animal and jungle prints, fringes and tie-dyes.
There are the usual staples of dresses, singlets and shorts. Lindex’s design manager, Nina Starck, gives the example of shorts, knitted top and a bikini underneath for a boho-chic look.
To emphasize a retro feel, Cruz can be seen in one image posing next to a turntable with an LP.
This latest part of the Lindex spring collection hits stores, online and offline, on May 6.
Cruz won an Academy Award for best supporting actress in the 2008 Woody Allen film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. News of the Lindex spring campaign breaking first surfaced on April 15.
While a Swedish-originated brand, Lindex was acquired by the Finnish retailer Stockmann in 2007. It currently has around 400 stores, including Russia and the Middle East.

Monica Cruz Will Model Penelope’s Designs In New Ads For Agent Provocateur
Filed Under: News & Rumors

Oscar winner, Penelope Cruz, 38, and her younger sister Monica Cruz, 35, have teamed up to design a new diffusion collection for luxury lingerie company Agent Provocateur.

The line will be called L’Agent and is intended to retail at a more affordable price point than is typical of the London-based brand, averaging around $64 per item, according to the New York Daily News. The line is scheduled to launch for the Autumn/Winter 2013 season in department stores globally. The line will not, however, be found in Agent Provocateur’s stand alone stores where items run upwards of $300 a piece, reports Time. This is not the first time Monica and Penelope have collaborated, they previously worked together on collections for Mango and Samantha Thavasa.

At this point, Agent Provocateur has not released any images of the collection, so it is unclear how prominently either Cruz will be featured in the campaign.
