Penelope Cruz Dressed up as a Poo

Posted by Adam

PENELOPE Cruz had to dress up as “a poo” on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides after losing a bet with Johnny Depp.

The Oscar-winning actress — who has been friends with her costar for the past 10 years — has revealed the 47-year-old actor constantly teased her while they were shooting scenes, and even made her walk around as South Park character Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo.

“You have to be very alert around Johnny because he likes teasing people and he does it when you least expect it,” Penelope said.

“Johnny and I are both fans of South Park and the character Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo. It’s absurd but very funny. Johnny made this outfit for me and we had a bet which I lost. And I had to wear the Poo outfit on the set.

“He was on the floor laughing and crying and he took a thousand pictures of me which I hope never come to light. But, of course, now that I’ve said it, I’m sure they will appear somewhere.”

The 37-year-old Spanish star — who has a three-month-old son Leo with her actor husband Javier Bardem — has also revealed when she first went to the US to launch her acting career, she only knew two English phrases — one of which demonstrated how keen she was to eventually work alongside Johnny.

“When I first came to America I only knew two phrases in English,” she said. “One was, ‘How are you?’ and the other was, ‘I want to work with Johnny Depp.’

“Then after I worked with him on Blow, I learned how to say, ‘I want to work with Johnny Depp again!’ He’s very addictive and he just gets better and better over the years.”
