Hey folks, I’ve added a ton of new photos in the gallery that was not added back in 2012. Good thing for me Penelope has been under the radar until her movie, The Counsellor. So I’ve added magazine photos from Vogue Spain November 2012 issue, photoshoots, and appearances from the premiere and photocall of Venuto Al Mondo (aka Twice Born). Enjoy!
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.

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.
