Penelope Cruz landed a role in the Sex and the City sequel after she confessed to watching the first movie 15 times.
Director Michael Patrick King offered the Spanish beauty a cameo in the upcoming big screen movie after she revealed she was a huge fan of the 2008 hit.
King explains, “It’s interesting because Penelope said to me, ‘I’ve seen that first movie 15 times! I put it on when I want to feel happy and I put it on when I want to feel sad.’ Penelope is a devoted follower of those girls and Mr Big so I needed a part and I thought, ‘Who better to play that part than Penelope?’
“But Penelope didn’t approach me – I went after her. She’s not playing herself whereas we also have Liza Minnelli who is playing herself and Miley Cyrus who also plays herself.”
