In September 2015, Penelope Cruz made a return to Spanish cinema. In 1989, when just 15, the Spanish actress/model made her acting debut in a music video for the Spanish pop group Mecano’s song “La Fuerza del Destino”.

Known for her highly-sexualized, vampy image, she has stepped outside her comfort zone in more ways than one.

The 41-year-old plays the role of an unemployed teacher named Magda suffering from breast cancer in the latest Julio Medem film, “Ma Ma.”

The film was recently bought by United States-based distributor Oscilloscope Films, cementing its American leg even before it premiered in Spain.

Meanwhile, Penelope was making her promotional rounds at red carpet premieres in Madrid.

The actress flaunted her legs at Capitol Cinema in Madrid, one of the Spanish capital’s flagship movie palaces, for another premiere night.

Penelope was later photographed with her husband, leaving the premiere to go on a date night.

Penelope wore a dress from Chanel Couture and Jimmy Choo “Vita” heels in black suede.
