Penelope Cruz Kissed a Girl - and She Doesn't Want to Talk About It

Sara De Boer / Retna Ltd.

Penelope Cruz knows when to keep her mouth open (when she's in the middle of a three-way kiss between Scarlett Johanssen and Javier Bardem) and when to keep it shut (when nosy journalists repeatedly ask about said kiss).

"Really, Scarlett and I have run out of lines to say about that," the star told Newsweek. "We're calling Woody [Allen] to give us some material. People love that subject. The only thing which is honest, the set was very crowded that day. But I don't have anything else to tell you about it."

When the reporter cheekily asked if she had to do any research for scene, she responded: "Very funny."

Realizing he wasn't going to get her to give any more details about kissing girls, Newsweek's man tried a different track, and the results are almost as awkward as this:

Newsweek: OK, new subject. I read that you take in stray cats. Is that true?
Penelope Cruz: I have a couple, yes, that I have found in the streets.

And you keep them now?

Of course. I didn't drown them in the river.

Is it true that you have 883 tattooed on your ankle?
It is true, but I never say why.

Is it an area code?
No, and it's not a Harley-Davidson. It's not the different things that have been said.

So everyone can have a theory?
I don't think anyone cares. It's my own tattoo.

And it's your own ankle.
Uh-huh.

All together now: awwwkward! Next time, maybe this reporter will fall back on old favorites like, "What's your favorite color?"
