Johnny Depp Praises Penélope Cruz As A Mother, Actress & Friend

When Spanish actress Penélope Cruz came to Los Angeles in 1994, she knew only two sentences in English – “How are you?” and, “I want to work with Johnny Depp.” Seventeen years later, Cruz just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Depp (whom she’s worked with in two movies) had nothing but wonderful things to say about his dear friend and their “long road of giggles” together.

“She’s an inconceivably phenomenal mommy, which I’ve witnessed firsthand, and it’s pretty incredible,” Depp said during Penélope’s Walk of Fame ceremony on Friday (April 1).

She’s as loyal and true a friend as anyone could ever dream of and I’m very privileged to be able to have her in my life,” he added.

And Penélope is feeling pretty privileged, too!

The first Spanish-born actress to receive a star on the Walk of Fame, Cruz is also a new mommy. She and husband Javier Bardem welcomed a son, Leo, in January.

During the ceremony, Penélope thanked her family for “making me so happy every day.”

        I used to have posters of him all over my walls when he was in 21 jump street. But I kind of think he looks a tad greasy now. He is gorgeous overall, but I like him a bit more clean shaven.

        Really admire Penelope though…

    They’re both gorgeous.
    Finally an actress who honors her body and takes some time to loose the baby weight. Not that she is fat, but compared to the majority of celebrities who are posing in bikinis five minutes after their baby was born, she is so beautiful and natural.

      You realize the baby’s less then 3mths old, right? I wouldn’t exactly say she’s “taken her time” losing the weight. She did it pretty quickly.

        She is no way skinny though. She still has what many moms have after a few months, those pesky 10-20 pounds to lose.
