Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz ‘Blow’, March 2001
Penelope Cruz was already a star in Spain when she came to America as a relative unknown, but even so she knew what she wanted to do. Cruz says that when she showed up in Hollywood one of the two English phrases that she knew was “I want to work with Johnny Depp.”
Cruz got her wish when she co-starred with Depp on Blow, their film about the life of a cocaine smuggler. The much beloved film was a hit, and Cruz says that she had such a good time that she learned another phrase. She said:
Then after I worked with him on Blow, I learned how to say, ‘I want to work with Johnny Depp again!’ He’s very addictive and he just gets better and better over the years.
