Well, the de­mure look didn’t last long, Pene­lope

Daily Mail - - Life - By Clem­mie Moodie As­so­ciate Show­busi­ness Ed­i­tor

SHE is known for her smoul­der­ing film roles and glit­ter­ing out­fits on the red car­pet.

So fans may be sur­prised by Pene­lope Cruz’s lat­est movie char­ac­ter – a but­toned-up mis­sion­ary with cropped hair.

The 43-year-old plays dour evan­ge­list Pi­lar Es­trava­dos in an adap­ta­tion of Agatha Christie’s novel Mur­der On The Ori­ent Ex­press, which is out next month.

How­ever the actress seems re­luc­tant to aban­don her glam­orous side en­tirely – as she has also posed for a magazine wear­ing noth­ing but a lux­u­ri­ous vel­vet drape.

Fol­low­ing the re­cent re­lease of Lov­ing Pablo – in which she ap­pears naked as a drug baron’s mis­tress – she spoke to Esquire about nu­dity in films. She told the magazine, which is out next week: ‘I thought “there is a char­ac­ter there”. Ev­ery­one was really re­spect­ful.’
