Gavin Esler spoke to Penelope Cruz about her new film Don't Move
Penelope Cruz was a working class girl from the suburbs of Madrid, who only started to learn English at the age of 20.
Now she's one of cinema's biggest female stars, a firm fixture on Hollywood's A-list -- and frequently compared with icons Marlene Dietrich and Audrey Hepburn.
With Hollywood at her feet, why is there still a special place in her heart for low-budget European films?
She talks to Gavin Esler about why she's fed up with journalists who "only want to talk about Tom Cruise".
