Penelope Cruz - Esquire
Penelope Cruz – Esquire

SHE’S already acting royalty here… so it is appropriate that Penelope Cruz is to be crowned The Queen Of Spain.

The Oscar-winning actress starts filming for Fernando Trueba’s new film The Queen of Spain later this year in Madrid.

She is being joined by Homeland’s Mandy Patinkin for the tale of a famous film star who leaves 1950s Hollywood to return to live in Madrid.

The latest movie will be her third collaboration with Trueba, whose Belle Epoque won the 1992 Oscar for best foreign language film.
