Penelope Cruz Achieves Her American Dream, Thanks to Johnny Depp

Jason LaVeris/FlimMagic(LONDON) -- Penelope Cruz has come a long way since she arrived in the U.S.  The actress, who hails from Spain, told Britain's Daily Mirror, "When I first came to America I only knew two phrases in English.  One was, 'How are you?' and the other was, 'I want to work with Johnny Depp.'" Proving America is the land of opportunity, Cruz expanded her vocabulary and went on to work with Depp in Blow, as well as the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

There were some issues working with Depp, though, says Cruz.  The 37-year-old Oscar winner reveals, "The only problem is he has a very peculiar sense of humor -- and even though I know all his tricks, he can still crack me up.  I can't stop laughing when we are working so we had a few problems on the set."
