Penélope Cruz Attempts to Teach Ellen Degeneres A Bit of Spanish



During an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres Show, la Madonna de Madrid, Penélope Cruz teaches host Ellen Degeneres some Spanish. The video of Cruz teaching the talk show host has gone viral on Youtube, as they talk about her life and her upcoming show American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

The brunette-beauty sits comfortably with Degeneres as they discuss what she has been up to as she has been living in Spain for quite some years. The comedian asks the Spanish born actress for help in learning Spanish and she readily gives in and tells her,"Me tienes hasta el moño," which means,"You have me up to here!" The Emmy Winning host funnily tries to repeat and then gives up altogether. "Me cago en la leche," the 43-year old stars asks the Finding Nemo actress to repeat, but not before she is tentative to say it, as it's an insult that is used commonly in Spain.

In case you were wondering what the full expression means, according to Urban Dictionary,  "Me cago en la leche de la puta que te date la luz" translates to, "I shit in the milk of the whore that bore you." A little bit of crude humor from the first Spanish actress to win an Academy Award for her performance in the movie directed by Woody Allen, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. 

We look forward to seeing Penélope on American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versacewhich premieres tonight January 17th on FX.
