Penélope Cruz Sánchez, Hollywood Actress

Happy Birthday, Penélope!  On April 28, 1974, Penélope Cruz Sánchez made her debut in Madrid, Spain.  Her mother recognized her talent, and enrolled her in dance classes at age five.  Since her acting debut at age 16, the talented actress, dancer and singer has starred in film and television for a worldwide audience.  Cruz is the first Spanish actress to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Far more than a pretty face, the intelligent and compassionate Cruz has worked as a volunteer in Uganda and supports the nonprofit Sabera Foundation.  This Foundation provides a home, school, and clinic for homeless girls and people suffering from tuberculosis in Calcutta.  (Photo by Joelle Maslaton)
