Penelope CruzSpanish actress Penelope Cruz will always turn down Hollywood roles in favor of working with her compatriot Pedro Almodovar because he is her favorite director. The beauty, who has also appeared in Blow and Captain Corelli's Mandolin, first came to international attention after working with Almodovar on 1999's All About My Mother.

The 32-year-old says, "(Almodovar) is my favorite director and it's a gift, this character. He had the trust to bring to my hands such an amazing, difficult, complex character and that's what I look for. I don't look for easy things."
