Biography: Penelope Cruz , in full Penélope Cruz Sánchez, (born April 28, 1974, Madrid, Spain), Spanish actress known for her beauty and her portrayal of sultry characters. She achieved early success in Spanish cinema and quickly established herself as an international star.
 Penelope Cruz Sanchez was the oldest of the three children born to Encarna Snchez and Eduardo Cruz. While her mother was a hairdresser and personal manager, her father was a retailer and auto mechanic. At the age of 25, she decided to move to Hollywood. 
Being on top of her career she didn’t have much trouble in getting the work. ‘Woman on Top’ was her first Hollywood offering, in which she was cast as Isabelle, a world-class chef suffering from motion sickness. Same year, she played the romantic lead in Billy Bob Thornton's ‘All the Pretty Horses’. Both films were well received. The string of successful films made her resume quite extraordinarily extravagant but the high point still remained elusive. Year 2001 filled up for the same with the release of Cameron Crowe's ‘Vanilla Sky’, an interpretation of the Spanish film ‘Open Your Eyes’. The film was a major box office blockbuster, helping her garner her first crossover success.
