Penelope Cruz Gets Naked for Magazine Cover

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides star Penelope Cruz says she cried after filming her nude scene in 1992's Jamon Jamon, but it was because she was embarrassed or was badly treated. It was because she didn't know if she'd ever see the people she was working with again. As it turns out, she eventually married one of her co-stars from that film, Javier Bardem.

Now Cruz is once again taking off her clothes, this time for the cover of Esquire magazine.

Academy Award-winning actress Penélope Cruz revealed she was upset after filming her first nude scene at 18 years-old, afraid she would never work again.

Cruz, 43, who was featured on Esquire’s November magazine cover, told the publication about her nude scene for the 1992 film “Jamon Jamon.” The movie also featured her future husband, Javier Bardem.

“I had a feeling the movie (‘Jamon, Jamon’) was going to be special,” Cruz told Esquire. “I knew the script was good. I knew there was something very unique there. Even if I had not seen many scripts before, it was so clear, it was so brave, so refreshing. And yes, it was very sexy.”

She added, “I thought, ‘There is a character there, there is a style, the material is really good.’ Of course I was not looking forward to those scenes but I did it. Everyone was really respectful, aware of the fact that I was 18. I remember the last day of filming, I was crying, saying, ‘What if I never shoot a movie again?’ The feeling was devastating. ‘Who knows when I will see these people again?’ Including Javier.”
