Penelope Cruz turns blonde for new flickMarch 11th, 2009 - 6:46 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Mar 11 (ANI): Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has turned into a blonde for her role in the upcoming drama Los Abrazos Rotos.
Director Pedro Almodovar has revealed that he did not want the actress” trademark dark and dishevelled hairstyle for the film.
Instead, he opted for a sleek platinum blonde wig - and even managed to convince Cruz to squeeze into a red latex minidress and fishnet tights to complete her dramatic metamorphosis.
“Before beginning the tests for my film I had already decided to avoid the dishevelled styles, inspired by Sophia Loren, which suit Penelope so well. After seeing the photo from Vicky Cristina Barcelona, I was even more convinced about my decision, Contactmusic quoted Almodovar, as saying.
“I want to try not to repeat hairstyles that Penelope has worn in other films. I really enjoy reinventing her, discovering the number of characters that reside within our beautiful and versatile leading lady,” Almodovar added. (ANI)
