Zimbio Review - Strange Pairing of Cruz, Hirsch Dooms 'Twice Born'

By Joe Robberson on
(Relativity Media)Long story short: Penélope Cruz works, the story less so. Twice Born begs us to care about it, but we just don't.Twice Born will remind you of: Doctor Zhivago, Don't Move, In the Land of Blood and Honey Review: The pairing of Penélope Cruz and Emile Hirsch is an odd one, distracting in fact. They play lovers in director Sergio Castellitto's Twice Born, a deathly serious drama that takes itself much more seriously than we do. Hampered by a plodding script and an out of place...Read Full Story

Emile Hirsch Talks 'Twice Born', Working With Penélope Cruz, & Celeb Death Matches

By Joe Robberson on
Emile Hirsch in Twice Born. (Entertainment One) In Twice Born, Emile Hirsch plays a young photographer who seduces an older woman, played by Penélope Cruz. Their affair is at the center of a film set against the Bosnian War, a turbulent pairing in turbulent times. It's a new kind of role for Hirsch, who's become one of Hollywood's most low-key leading men. He does show off the unbridled enthusiasm that's marked his past films, but the actor also embraces the chance to tap into a more serious...Read Full Story

Zimbio Review - You've Never Seen Anything Quite Like 'The Counselor'

By Joe Robberson on
(20th Century Fox)Long story short: The Counselor will frustrate many by defying every convention in the book, but it has concrete ideas about good and evil and the falsity of man's moral compass. See it.The Counselor will remind you of: Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, No Country for Old Men, Only God Forgives, Thelma & Louise, Wild Things, Savages, Sin NombreReview: What's fiendishly clear about The Counselor is it's very much a Cormac McCarthy story. The novelist's first original...Read Full Story

The Reasons We Love the New 'The Counselor' Trailer

By Lani Conway on
(20th Century Fox) Ridley Scott's new trailer for The Counselor is everything you love in a really bad trailer. On the one hand, the film is a viable Oscar contender (there's an all-star cast and some pretty stellar writing from Pulitzer Prize-winner Cormac McCarthy). On the other hand, there's so many cheetahs, sexy stares, and awfully bad Bahama blouses, cowboy hats, and hair that we don't know how serious to be. But one thing is certain, The Counselor is our new favorite guilty pleasure...Read Full Story

Penelope Cruz Gives New Daughter a Fairly Normal Name

By Deena Bustillo on
Pacific Coast NewsPenelope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed their second child into the world, a daughter, on July 22 and now the baby's name has surfaced. According to Spanish magazine Vanitatis, they are calling her Luna Encinas Cruz.Luna means "moon" in Spanish while Encinas is Bardem's first surname. Cute, right? While Luna isn't as common as Jennifer or Jessica, the name is pretty darn tame when you compare it to Holly Madison's tot Rainbow Aurora and Busy Philipps' new baby Cricket Pearl...Read Full Story

WATCH: Penelope Cruz Makes Her Directorial Debut with a Racy Lingerie Ad

By Lani Conway on
Penelope Cruz's directorial debut is anything but demure. The Spanish actress got behind the camera to film a five-minute ad for the Agent Provocateur lingerie line designed by her sister Monica, and the images she crafted are definitely what one would expect a lingerie ad to be: There's dapper men in suits, leggy models in skimpy lingerie (like Irina Shayk), and very racy intimate moments that go down in a swanky Madrid mansion. But, there are two catches to the whole affair. The dude in the...Read Full Story
