sexiest penelope cruz-1133407IF getting snapped topless wasn’t bad enough, Penelope Cruz has now been ordered to pay the newspaper who published the photos.

Cruz took the Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet to court over revealing photos published in September 2013.

But Copenhagen City Court has now cleared the paper and editor Poul Madsen of any fault.

And to add insult to injury, Cruz has also been ordered to pay €3,500 in compensation to cover the legal costs.

“The judgement shows that a well-known foreign celebrity can’t just come into this country and demand compensation,” Madsen said.

“It would constitute a violation of Danish liberal-mindedness and media responsibility.”

The actress – named ‘sexiest woman alive’ in Esquire magazine last year – was snapped bare chested on a beach with her husband, Javier Bardem.

This is Cruz’s second unsuccessful bid to sue the newspaper after the original ruling was appealed in June 2014.
