Yep. It has been reported by sources, so you know it's the absolute truth: Penelope Cruz will be the next Bond girl.
What does that even mean? You're all, 'But they don't officially have a director yet!' Yeah, even though everyone and their celebrity-focused grandma is sure that it will be Sam Mendes, nothing is official. So how is it that Cruz is even in the mix? Well, Yahoo News UK is reporting that the 40 year old actress is going over her Bond 24 papers right now. A 'source' 'close to the production' 'said':
The producers have tried to get Penelope before, but she has never been available because of other commitments. The discussions have been going on for some time and they are working out the contract details now.
If those sources are telling the truth, that would make Cruz the oldest Bond MILF ever. Given all we've (literally) seen of the Spanish actress, we have absolutely no problem with this, she is among the most MILFtastic of them all.
