Lucky old Penelope Cruz. Not only has she just married the rather dishy Javier Bardem, but today, pictures are filtering in of the actress on set in Hawaii with (GASP!) Johnny Depp. Although pirates garb wouldn’t be our first choice for an encounter with the rugged hunk, Penelope manages to carry off the swashbucklin’ style with her usual Spanish aplomb. Sickening.
The pair are busy filming the fourth installment of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, in which Johnny’s reprising his genius role as Captain Jack Sparrow alongside Pen as his “vicious and vivacious” love-interest, Angelica. So far, we’ve spotted them swigging a bottle o’ rum aboard The Black Pearl before taking a jaunt hand-in-hand along the seashore. And if their smouldering liaison in 'Blow' is anything to go by, this is set to be explosive!
Oh and get this: Gemma Ward, the Australian supermodel who’s slipped off the radar in recent years – is lined up to play a mermaid in the film. We always knew there was something a little fishy about that one... (ho ho ho!).
