She's today's hottest star. While half the world is watching her every move, she is travelling the other half, hopping from one red carpet to another to promote her new film, the fourth entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga. In spite of all that, Penelope Cruz has just revealed in Cannes that she will never forget where she came from: “I will always be a Spanish actress, whether I work in L.A. or anywhere else.” At filmotech.com, we've decided to help her keep that promise by offering you three of her early works. You can see her in a small part in El laberinto griego (The Greek Labyrinth), a film she appeared in even before she became a national phenomenon in Spain with Jamón, Jamón. Or, there's Brujas (Witches) by Álvaro Fernández Armero, with Cruz having a look quite different from her glamour of nowadays and underarms unshaven. And, Alejandro Amenábar's Abre los Ojos (Open Your Eyes) was a passport to Hollywood for Cruz.
