There’s no question about this. Some of the hottest ladies in Hollywood capturing the all American men’s fantasies are transplants. Kate Beckingsale, Nicole Kidman, Selma Hayek, Penelope Cruz and the most recent ingenue, Marion Cortillard. This December, Penelope Cruz and Marion Cortillard stars alongside other Hollywood A-list doyennes such as Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren, Judi Dench and Fergie in Nine. To prep for the release of the movie, Interview Magazine pit Marion Cortillard against co-star Penelope Cruz and put both in a conversation about the nature of acting, favorite films, work experience, favorite places and even dreams– for an in-depth profile of the lady who swooned us as the dramatic smoldering artist with a penchant for violence on Vicky, Christina, Barcelona. Get into the psyche of Penelope Cruz and enjoy a beautiful photo shoot of the lady in a tough luxe, trash couture get up.
