Penelope Cruz Once Took Her Oscar Statue to the Beach

Penelope Cruz attends a photo call for an untitled cinema project at the Viceroy Headquarters on Thursday (October 8) in Madrid, Spain.

The 41-year-old actress recently told Elle that she took her Oscar to the beach after winning back in 2009!

“Because on the way to Spain after the Oscars, the year I won [in 2009, for Vicky Cristina Barcelona], I was visiting some family and friends on the beach. And I could not believe I won, I could not believe the Oscar was mine! So I took it everywhere with me. To the beach, yes. I wrapped it in a towel,” Penelope said. It’s not still wrapped in that same towel, though!

“It’s in my house! Why would it be put away? It’s an Oscar! It’s right there in my house,” Penelope said.
