Penélope Cruz

Penélope Cruz was born on April 28th. The same date as Jessica Alba. Am I the only one thinking national holiday?

While Miss Cruz's top grossing role to date was as an animated Guinea Pig in G-Force (and another thing why isn't Guinea Pig considered politically incorrect like Jew Fish or Pole cat), that wasn't her first role here in America.

Cruz's first film was Jamón, jamón (still unavailable on Netflix) She also starred in Open Your Eyes which was remade into Vanilla Sky. She has also appeared in the Hi-Lo Country, The Girl of Your Dreams, Woman on Top, Blow, Waking Up in Reno, Gothika, Noel, Sahara, and Nine.

For Volver she was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Oscar and with Vicky Christina Barcelona she won both prizes.

Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz have a conversation in bed in the movie Elegy followed by Penelope putting on a white bra that accents her copious cleavage.

Penelope Cruz kissing Martin Freeman in The Good Night

Penelope Cruz rests by the pool in a black one piece and then three Penelope Cruzs (Cruzes?) kiss Martin Freeman in this short clip from The Good Night.

I'm not saying Penelope Cruz cannot dance ala Elaine from Seinfeld but well you be the judge.

Only Penelope Cruz could wear a business outfit and show that much cleavage.

Penelope Cruz doing a somewhat unattractive (at least for her) striptease in Chromophobia.

Penelpe Cruz takes a bath and shows no nudity. Above she did a striptease and showed no nudity. I'm thinking Chromophobia's writer/director Martha Fiennes (sister of Joseph and Ralph Fiennes) doesn't know how to properly use Miss Cruz.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona clips with Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, and Patricia Clarkson. Penolepe Cruz and Scarlett Johansson make out at the end.

Penelope Cruz paints in the world's sexiest painter smock.

Penelope Cruz plays hard to get in Volaverunt

Penelope Cruz's breasts and a historical corset in an epic battle in Volaverunt.

I know I showed part of this clip above, but the lesbian kiss between Penélope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson bears repeating.

Scarlett Johansson talking over a Woody Allen voice over (it's either in the movie or directors commentary I honestly can't tell) with a unhappy looking Penélope Cruz popping into frame at the end.

Barbara Crampton

Barbara Crampton is the daughter of a carny. She was a popular Scream Queen in the Eighties within appearances in From Beyond, Puppet Master and a personal favorite Chopping Mall.

She moved on to becoming a soap star playing Leanna 'Love' Randolph in The Young and the Restless.

I consider her (despite her limited roles) to be one of the better horror actresses of the eighties.

She undoubtedly will always be best remembered as the receiver of decapitated cunnilingus in Re-Animator.
