“I would love to,” she replied. “I saw my husband singing in [Being] the Ricardos and he did an incredible job!”

Penelope has some experience with musicals, having starred in Rob Marshall‘s musical Nine in 2009.

“He was feeling the same way I was feeling when I did Nine, when I had no idea that I could sing but then Rob Marshall convinced me after doing a couple of tests that I could. And then because I danced for 18 years, ballet, and I’m a big fan of the dance world and music, it’s such a powerful art for me, even more than cinema, so for me the genre of musicals is a dream! I’ve only done one, so I hope I can repeat it someday,” she shared.

The actress noted a similar topic had come up a few weeks earlier when reporters asked what her next film with frequent collaborator Pedro Almodóvar.

“‘Something you haven’t done together?’” she recalled being asked. “The first thing that comes to mind is a musical. We have to do a musical together, and everyone had such an enthusiastic reaction when I said that. Everyone, every fan of Pedro Almodóvar wants to see a musical.”

Penelope recently revealed why her and Javier‘s children aren’t allowed to have social media.
