'Pirates Of The Caribbean': Penelope Cruz Talks Filming While Pregnant

Penelope Cruz didn't exactly have your normal pregnancy. While it's best to get lots of rest, Cruz instead spent months filming a swashbuckling adventure movie.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" star spoke to Entertainment Weekly about what it was like to film the movie while with child.

"Rob and Johnny [Depp] and Jerry Bruckheimer all really took care of me and made all the changes that were necessary to have total safety," Cruz told the magazine. "But they left Johnny and I on a deserted island with no bathrooms to do a helicopter shot. That for a pregnant woman can be a little bit of a problem. So for those few hours I had to keep going into the water every 15 minutes. That was one of those things that you remember forever."

It's unknown whether any of those ocean pees got into the film, but the good news is that none of her adventures got in the way of having a healthy baby boy in January with husband Javier Bardem. And the recent birth didn't stop her from showing off her post-baby body at the Oscars.

Cruz recently announced that she'll be starring in her "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" director Woody Allen's next film, to be set in Rome.
