While the transition from singing to acting is more common than the reverse, that didn't stop Penelope Cruz from belting out a few high-pitched verses in the 2009 film "Nine." But don't expect her to release an album anytime soon.
"Penelope sings fabulously and, above all, she has a lot of personality in her voice and enjoys it a lot, something that you can't say about everyone," Bose told Spanish wire service EFE.
Listen to Cruz sing for yourself in the video above.
Don't care for her singing? Check out our five favorite scenes of Cruz!
As the feisty Maria Elena, Juan Antonio's (Javier Bardem) psycho ex-girlfriend in Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," Penelope corrects Javier when he calls her talented. "No talent! I'm not talking about talent...I said genius. Geeeeniiiiiusss!" (With comedic timing this good, it's no wonder Penelope won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in the film!).
Penelope's performance in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" was way too good to include just one scene! In this hilarious scene, her explosive character Maria Elena explains to Juan Antonio why Cristina (Scarlett Johansson), is ending her relationship with them. The fact that she's yelling, cursing, sobbing and crying at the same time is enough to make the scene hilarious, but when Maria Elena accuses Cristina of suffering from "chronic dissatisfaction," and calls her a "spoiled little sh**," we can't help but burst into laughter!
Forget the fact that she sounds exquisite, Penelope's access to her emotions as Raimunda sings her heart out in "Volver" brought tears to our eyes.
Cruz's scene-stealing performance as the money-hungry, cocaine-addicted Mirtha Jung in the drug drama "Blow," showed Hollywood she had serious acting chops. Our favorite scene? That scene in the car when Mirtha accuses George (Johnny Depp) of cheating on her with his best friend. "You're not facking me, you gotta be facking somebody else."
"I'll be here, waiting for you. With my legs open." That is all...
