Penelope Cruz & Bono Bow Down to Each Other at Award Ceremony in Spain

Penelope Cruz is presented with the Donostia Award by U2 singer Bono during an event at the 2019 San Sebastian Film Festival on Friday (September 27) in San Sebastian, Spain.

The 45-year-old Oscar-winning actress and the 59-year-old rocker both bowed down to each other during the sweet moment on stage.

“Not every actor has a fascinating story off-screen as on. Penelope – her life is fascinating to me off-screen because it’s all about the drama of the family, and the extended family of which I’m blessed to be a part,” Bono said while presenting the award. “Performers like us, like me, we get lost in ourselves. Penelope – she gets lost in everyone else. And that’s why we get lost in her.”

Penelope was joined at the event by her Wasp Network co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Edgar Ramirez.

FYI: Penelope is wearing a Chanel Couture dress and Atelier Swarovski jewelry.

U2 Will Bring Their Joshua Tree Tour to Asia & Australia

Fans of U2 in Australia and Asia are in luck as the band will be bringing their smash hit Joshua Tree Tour there!

The band is heading to Singapore and South Korea for the first time ever and this will mark their first time in Australia since 2010.

The original run of the tour celebrated the album’s 30th anniversary back in 2017.

“It’s only taken me 30 years to learn how to sing these songs and it’s great to be able to say that I’ve finally caught up with the band,” Bono said in a statement (via Rolling Stone). “Our audience has given the Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour. Doing these shows has been very special for us, a lot of emotion… From the despair of how relevant some of the dark songs still are, to the joy, pure fun of the staging… it’s quite a ride. And now we get to do it all over again. Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul… We’re coming for you.”
