PHOTO: Penelope Cruz Rocks Acupuncture Needles to Movie Premiere

Penelope Cruz was recently spotted wearing acupuncture needles in her left ear during the premiere of Venuto Al Mondo in Spain earlier this month.

According to E!, the actress is practicing a type of acupuncture treatment called auriculotherapy, which can be used for a variety of reasons.

The treatment may be used to relieve chronic back pain and also helps with depression, weight loss, and nausea. The tiny studs, which almost go unnoticed, also help with fertility.

No word yet why Penelope decided to use them, but perhaps she’s planning on having another baby with husband, Javier Bardem?
