Penelope Cruz is ready to give New York City the cold shoulder for a good cause.
The Oscar winning actress will go nude for PETA -- and this is no small campaign, she will be on a 70-foot billboard near Penn Station.
From a statement made by Senior VP Lisa Lange of PETA-
"Penelope has appeared on every 'best-dressed' list in the world, and the one thing you'll never see her wearing is fur, PETA couldn't ask for a more fitting emblem of the modern, glamorous woman who knows that there's nothing more beautiful than a woman who has a look that kills without anyone having to die for it."
This should draw some attention. Maybe that's what Occupy Wall Street needs!!
Penelope Cruz looks totally hot post-baby body in the June 2011 issue of Vogue magazine. However, it wasn't all that long ago Penelope was pregnant and playing a pirate at the same time. The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides actress was expecting her first child while filming the movie. Penelope gave birth to her son Leo in January.
On the birth of her first child: She told the magazine: 'From the first second, you feel so much love. It is a revolutionary experience. That’s the best way I can describe it. It transforms you completely, in a second.
'Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment—when you see that face, you are transformed forever.
'Changed the way I see the world. Even if you were aware of children and felt compassion, when you have your own, it multiplies.
On keeping her son out of the media spotlight: 'I want my son - and my kids if I have more - to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible.
'The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.'
