Penelope Cruz received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday, April 1st, in front of the El Capitan Theatre, 6834 Hollywood Boulevard. Joining her at her Walk of Fame ceremony was Johnny Depp who was, not only a good friend, but also one of her co-stars.  She became the first actress from Spain to be nominated and to win an Oscar.
Two of her first movies were the  Spanish films “Jamon, Jamon” and “Belle Epoque.”   In 1998 she starred in her first English  film, “The Hi-Lo Country”  opposite Woody Harrelson and Patricia Arquette . In 1999, Cruz won the Best Actress award at the 13th Annual Goya Awards given by the Spanish Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for her role in Fernando Trueba’s “The Girl of Your Dreams.'
She later appeared in Billy Bob Thornton’s “All the Pretty Horses,” along with a handful of other films. 
Having always wanted to act with Johnny Depp, Cruz landed a role opposite Johnny Depp in “Blow,” and “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” opposite Nicolas Cage. After that, Cruz starred opposite Tom Cruise in Cameron Crowe’s thriller “Vanilla Sky.
To add to her already diverse choice of film credits, she starred in films including “Gothika,” “Head in the Clouds,” and “Sahara.”
In 2006, Cruz starred in “Volver,” which again teamed her with director and dear friend Pedro Almodovar. Critically-acclaimed for her role as Raimunda, she won the Best Actress awards at the European Film Awards, the Cannes Film Festival, and received a Golden Globe nomination.
Penelope Cruz has received three Academy Award nominations. The first was in the 2006 when she was nominated for Best Actress for the film 'Volver.'  Her next nomination resulted in her winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in 'Vicky 'Cristina Barcelona.'  Her third Oscar nomination was for the movie 'Nine.'
Rob Marshall, the film's director who also directed Cruz in her 2009 Oscar-nominated role in the romantic musical 'Nine,' joined her in speaking at the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard. Also speaking to an audience of hundreds of adoring fans was Johnny Depp.
