Penélope Cruz is one of the most talented actresses of her generation. Born in Spain, she rose to international fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s thanks to her breakout performances in a series of critically acclaimed films.

Cruz’s career began in the mid-1990s with appearances in Spanish films such as “Jamon Jamon” and “Belle Epoque.” Her breakthrough role came in 1997 with “Open Your Eyes,” a psychological thriller directed by Alejandro Amenábar. The film was a critical and commercial success, and it paved the way for Cruz to make a name for herself on the international stage.

Cruz’s next major role came in 2001 with “Vanilla Sky,” a Hollywood remake of “Open Your Eyes.” In the film, she starred opposite Tom Cruise, and her performance earned her a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. The film was also a box office hit, grossing over $200 million worldwide.

Over the next few years, Cruz continued to take on challenging and diverse roles in films. In “Vanilla Sky,” she starred opposite Tom Cruise. She also appeared alongside Johnny Depp in “Blow,”.
