We think it's time for Penélope Cruz to take some lessons in media training. The notoriously media-shy actress has been more evasive than usual recently, while doing press for her new film Vicky Cristina Barcelona (co-starring Scarlett Johannsen and Penélope's boyfrien,d Javier Bardem).

Penélope appeared at an intimate New York screening of the film, and spoke to reporters on the red carpet before joining Javier, director Woody Allen, and many of New York's glitterati in the theater.

truthful and unrelenting for its full running time, "No Country for Old
