Now Penelope’s acting career has been given a major boost having just been named as the next costar in the forthcoming James Bond movie to be filmed in the early part of next year.

And what makes Cruz’s castings even more special is that when the film is made Penelope will be already in her 40th year, making her the oldest Bond girl in history, passing UK actress Honor Blackman, who was 39 when she appeared in one of the first Bond movies , Goldfinger more than 50 years ago.

By that time Penelope will be a mother of two children as she and her actor husband Javier Barden are expecting a new baby in the fall. Interestingly Barden, one of Spain’s best-known actors, took the role of super villain in the last James Bond movie, Sky fall.
