penelope cruz gets a star on the hollywood walk of fame

Congratulations, Penelope! This is SO well deserved!

Today, Penelope Cruz is being awarded the 2,436th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!

After so many wonderful performances including Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Volver, Vanilla Sky, and even some other films that don't begin with the letter "V," we're very happy to hear that she's being recognized like this.

Keep up the good work, Ms. Cruz!

We're looking forward to seeing you next in Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides!

Do U think Penelope Cruz deserves a star on the Walk of Fame? Who else do U think deserves a star?

    Everytime she talks I need to make sure the captions are on, I have no idea what she says otherwise.



  2. 2

    i dont think she deserves it… i dont understand a word she says and i have never heard of her doing anything for charity. give it to will ferell.



  3. 3

    So doesn't deserve the recognition. There are a TON of people who have passed and never got their star. Has she been nominated for awards? Why not consider someone who honestly deserves it!!

    Wow! People, do your homework before posting here!

    Novel1 / I guess your question about the awards is a joke. She is an Oscar winner and other two times nominated. She have won every possible award in Europe too (Cannes Festival, David de Donatello, Goya, European Awards…).

    forsteva / That you have never heard of her doing charity doesn´t means she is not doing it. She use to be very involved with some charity foundations in Calcuta and is a regular collaborator with RED from Bono. I don´t see the link between charity and a Hollywood star anyway.

    Penélope is just amazing.

    hey Perez please create a presence on my new social media site, www.LoveCinema.com a great way to create check-in parties when you are watching or shmoozing with celebrities.

    She does deserve it just because she doesn't speak good English that doesn't make her a bad actress, get over yourself's Americans please. She was great in Vicky Cristina Balrcelona, she puts in lots of emotion and really showed her talent in that movie.

    I hope her marriage to Javier Bardem exposes her to better films than Disney pirate series. Javier is such a fine, versatile actor. They have a chance to become legends.

    Re: Borja De La Vega – you are soooo right!!! don't even care about all those haters have to say .

    Meh.

    Earning a star on the Walk of Fame takes more than a list of award noms and wins. It takes a certain gravitas and star-power. Does Penelope make the cut stateside or abroad? Meh. Just meh.

    Sometimes, I loathe that I think critically about these things.



  10. 10

    people actually pay to have a star on the walk of fame, look it up, it's not awarded lol



  11. 11

    Yes, she's a good actress and I'm sure she's a nice woman, but there are so many other actors/actresses who deserve it so much more than she does - at this point. I'm sure one day, she will be more deserving of her own star, but right now? It's not a brilliant idea!!



  12. 12

    Wow. Those "stars" must go cheap these days. You used to have a major body of work to get one. She's good, but there are others far more worthy.



  13. 13

    I think she is beautiful and talented, but she does not deserve a star….yet. I thought it was Natalie Portman at first and I was disappointed to find it wasn't her. Not sure if NP has one yet or not, but Penelope Cruz….you were in Vanilla Sky for a few scenes and Spanglish like five years ago, what else have you been in?



  14. 14

    Considering people less talented than her have a star, especially many without Oscars themselves, I think Penelope is well deserved.



  15. 15

    It seems like anyone can get a star now, it's no longer a special honor like it used to be.



  16. 16

    Pene?…… WHY?? Javier deserves it more!



  17. 17

    I think she deserves it. Also, the Jonas Brothers should get one too.



  18. 18

    P is beautiful and talented! Haters can suck it!
    She was even great in the animated G-Force-that's
    how talented she is AND tho Nicolas Cage is a bobble head,
    Capt. Corellis Mandolin makes me cry.



  19. 19

    no she doesnt deserve one yet or anytime soon. She's only good in spanish speaking roles. In english she is still not convincing at all because she hasnt grasped the language fully yet.

    10 years time she may deserve one

    I don't think she deserves it. To me, you should only get a star when you've done a lot of memorable stuff. She's only done one, 'Vanilla Sky'.
    Corey Feldman may be a "hasbeen" now, but he did a lot of classics like 'The Lost Boys', 'Stand By Me', 'Gremlins' and 'The Goonies'. And he hasn't got a star. It seems like they're just giving stars to people who are A-lists instead of people who have made an impact on a lot of us.

    Re: Borja De La Vega – +1000000

    That suprises me a bit. I think if she had some solid critical acclaim in TV along with her movie career. But she won the Oscar for supporting actress. I've been waiting for Kathy Griffin to get one…



  23. 23

    um people it's only 25k for a star what most major stars make in an hour of work on a movie. other stars have gotten them early in their careers as well Joanne woodward for example got hers in 1960 only five years after her film debut granted she had won the best actress oscar in 1958 for her first major dramatic role. getting a star on the Hollywood walk of fame is one of the few awards the star actually has to show up to receive or they don't. for example When Paul Newman won the best actor oscar in 1987 he didn't show up to collect it his friend film director Robert Wise did because he had lost in the catagory 6 times prior to that and once for best picture. It's not about speaking it's about respect from the entertainment industry

    I think Penelope Cruz deserves a star. She is crazy talented, and by the time she is done will be an iconic actress. I also think that John Candy deserves a star on the walk of fame. When I heard that he didn't have one I was shocked! He was one of the funniest and most beloved comedians of our time! It's a travesty!

    Nice, even chihuahuas get Hollywood stars…….

    Ay caramba!
