Already a superstar in her native Spain, PENELOPE CRUZ is poised on the brink of stardom here in America. First introduced to American audiences in the Spanish films, Jamon, Jamon and Belle Epoque, in 1998 she starred in her first English language film, Hi-Lo Country, for director Stephen Frears and opposite Woody Harrelson, Patricia Arquette and Billy Crudup.

Most recently, she starred in Pedro Almovodar's All About My Mother, which was awarded a Golden Globe for best foreign film.

Last year, Cruz was the recipient of the Best Actress award at the 13th Annual Goya Awards given by the Spanish Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for her role in Fernando Trueba's The Girl of Your Dreams. Other film credits include Almovodar's Live Flesh, Talk of Angels and Don Juan.

Confirming her status as Spain's hottest international actress, Cruz landed the coveted role opposite Matt Damon in last year's film adaptation of All the Pretty Horses, directed by Billy Bob Thornton. In the film, Cruz plays a Mexican girl from an upper class family that discourages her romance with Damon.

In 2000, Cruz also portrayed Isabella in Woman on Top. The film, a whimsical tale of a gifted gourmand who journeys across the world in search of success, but ultimately finds herself is directed by Fina Torres.

Other recent films include her starring role in the thriller, Open Your Eyes, and the romance, Twice Upon a Yesterday.
