Penelope Cruz Loves to Rap, Won't Confirm or Deny Engagement Rumors

Penelope Cruz visited David Letterman on the New York set of his Late Night show yesterday and talked to the host about everything from her Oscar win to her love of karaoke.

But the moment everyone was waiting for came towards the end of the interview when Letterman asked her, point blank, whether or not she was engaged to her longtime boyfriend Javier Bardem. Cruz simply responded, "I do not like to talk about my private life in public."

Letterman refused to back down and pushed the Spanish actress on her relationship status, but Cruz remained resolute, telling the talk show host, "Ay, I've been here a few times with you and you know I'm tough.I mean, one thing I don't do, I don't lie about my personal life. I wouldn't tell you, 'No,' if something wasn't true because that's sacred for me. It's my life and I don't...I don't give details. I'm allergic to it, I can't do that." 

It's not a flat out denial, nor did she confirm any details. But we're not sure that's so necessary since throughout the entire interview the Nine and Broken Embraces actress was flashing what looked like a huge sapphire and diamond sparkler on that all-so-important left ring finger! 

Check out the video below and tell us: Do you think Penelope is trying to keep the media circus going by playing coy about the engagement news?
