Penelope Cruz didn't realise her new movie was a comedy until filming had
finished.
The 34-year-old actress - who has been nominated for an Academy Award for
Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of gun-wielding maniac Maria Elena
in 'Vicki Cristina Barcelona' - couldn't understand why people were laughing
during screenings of Woody Allen's latest project.
She said: "When we were in the middle of shooting, I felt like I was doing
the most intense and disturbing drama I ever did in my career.
"I never laughed until months later, when I saw the movie with an audience.
At the beginning, I remember feeling like, 'Why are they laughing?'"
The Spanish actress - who was nominated for an Oscar in 2006 for morbid
drama 'Volver' - recently finished filming musical movie 'Nine'.
Penelope plays Carla, a beautiful seductress who at one point performs a
sexy song while swinging on ropes.
It was a role that left the actress blistered and bruised, but she loved
every minute of it and was in tears on her last day of shooting.
She said: "You carry on and forget the pain, and at the end of the day you
see all the blisters and bruises.
"I couldn't stop crying, because I had been doing dance classes and
rehearsals for so many months. It's in the film and it will be there for
ever, but I don't get to do it again. I was addicted to it!"
'Nine' - which also stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson,
Fergie, Judi Dench and Sophia Loren - is due for release in November.
