She has shared loves scenes with the likes of Tom Cruise and Scarlett Johannson but Penelope Cruz has worked with one star she admires the most.
The Spanish actress, 36, has revealed she one enjoyed a partially nude magazine shoot with her idol Meryl Streep.
Penelope speaks out about a charity (RED) campaign in an interview in the May edition of Harper's Bazaar magazine US.
The actress explained how she had to climb onto of the third-time Oscar winner and said: ‘As soon as she got to the set, I had to sit topless on top of her.’
She added: ‘It was the most interesting love scene I have ever done.’
Penelope admits to being a huge fan of the Iron Lady star and said: 'When I first started watching movies and I saw Meryl’s work, that’s when I became obsessed with acting.'
She added: 'Now I kiss her whenever I see her! She must think I’m crazy.'
The brunette sexpot poses on the cover of the latest edition of the magazine and is also seen in a stylish shoot inside.
In one snap Penelope shows off her hourglass shape in a glittering gold dress which boasts basque and peplum detail.
And on the cover the actress offers a subtle but powerful peek at her curves in a Swarovski-crystal jacket and diamond-and-sapphire necklace by Armani Privé.
