Actress Penelope Cruz lights up the big screen in every role she portrays.  Is she ready to take on the real life role of wife and mother anytime soon?  This is what she had to say:
"I want to have babies one day but not for right now.  When I do I want to do it really well.  I want it to the be the best project in my life.  I don't know if I believe in marriage.  I believe in family, love and children."

No word on whether or not her boyfriend actor Javier Bardem believes in marriage.  One thing is for sure...their babies would be gorgeous.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem were just two of the host of celebrities on the red carpet for the LA premiere of Vicky Cristina Barcelona on Monday evening. The Village Theater in Westwood was the venue and the star studded cast members were all on hand for the screening.

Written and directed by Woody Allen, the film tells the story of two girl friends on a summer holiday in Spain who fall for the same painter, unaware that his ex wife is about to reenter the picture.

Woody and his wife Soon-Ye Previn have an unlikely relationship that appears to have withstood the test of time and began as a scandal in the 90's.

Cruz and Bardem were romantically linked earlier this year.  Woody Harrelson outed their relationship while presenting an award to the actor for his performance in No Country for Old Men. The couple have known each other since 1992.

We've got great photos from the red carpet of Cruz, Bardem, Scarlett Johansson, Salma Hayek, Krysten Ritter, Chris Messina, and Masiela Lusha below.

Ex-scientologist Marc Headly is saying that Tom Cruise held auditions for his future wife. Poor Kate, she wasn't his first pick. But luckily the other 3 wanted nothing to do with Tom.

Headly, who previously produced promotional videos for the Scientology organization, spoke with Britain's News of the World about Tom. He said that Cruise admitted to having trouble meeting the right woman after his split from Penelope Cruz in 2004. So the group stepped in to help Tommy out.

And what else could possibly make sense than to hold a casting call for an "upcoming" Cruise movie? There were a few guidelines though, you had to be pretty, single and in your twenties. Tom's picks: Jennifer Garner, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba, in that order.

Although Jennifer and Jessica didn't take the bait, Johansson did until she realized that the meeting was going to be at the Scientology Center and refused to go.

You know the saying - save the best for last. Well that is what they must have done. Katie Holmes jumped at the chance to meet her teenage crush. Kate was once quoted as saying that she dreamed of marrying Cruise as a young girl. After their first meeting Cruise told Marc, "I knew immediately she was the one."

Doesn't this story just give you warm fuzzies?

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem first met in 1992 when they both had roles in the Spanish film Jamon Jamon. The two have been pulled together once again in a Woody Allen film Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

The couple had not responded to rumors of a renewed relationship until Woody Harrelson let the cat out of the bag while presenting The Montecito award to Bardem for his supporting role in No Country for Old Men at the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Tuesday. The actor also won a Golden Globe Award for the movie, and is up for an Oscar.

Harrelson remarked:

"I can't believe the luck Javier has. If you look at his biography - one page is just describing his journey and then the second page is all of the awards he's won. And not to mention, I found this out last night too - he's going out with Penelope Cruz!"

The audience cheered at Harrelson's remarks and the embarrassed Bardem hung his head and covered his face with his hands.

The couple are set to begin production on another Woody Allen film Nine. We've included a photo of Cruz from the movie the couple have just finished, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. There is also a tabloid cover showing the couple in the Maldives last Fall.

Penelope Cruz is missing her digital camera that is said to contain a variety of private photos taken with her family and friends during a recent vacation trip in South America.

The actress was seen last week on a Brazilian beach with Javier Bardem, a fellow Spaniard and her co-star in an upcoming Woody Allen film Vicky Christina Barcelona.

Cruz filed a police report and has her lawyer contacting all of the tabloids to ensure they understand that any use of found photos could be a copyright violation and an invasion of the actresses privacy.

Andrew Morton is set to release a new book entitled Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography. He is the same author who penned the book Diana: Her True Story.

Morton claims that Scientology affects every aspect of the actors life. Cruise was first introduced to the teachings in 1986 by his first wife Mimi Rogers. The premise is that all of life's problems can be solved by a system of one on one counseling called 'auditing' which is measured by an 'E-meter'. Alien spirits inhabit human bodies and must be flushed out. They also practice disconnect, which is cutting oneself off from family and friends who do not follow Scientology.

Leader David Miscavige began to rebuild the reputation of the organization after a fraud scandal rocked their underpinnings in 1982. He lives 90 miles from Los Angeles on a 500 acre resort, with his most devoted followers. They refer to themselves as Sea Org. The outer perimeter is said to be fortified with protective devices and security cameras.

Cruise and Miscavige have become very close friends. Morton insinuates that Cruise may be ranked the second most important Scientologist, after Miscavige. Cruise's household staff, including nannies, chefs, gardeners, household staff and security guards, are all Scientologist's, placed by Miscavige into their positions. The practice began during his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

The Daily Mail has provided specific allegations from the book.

  • Among the claims is that Tom's daughter Suri Cruise, with Katie Holmes, is the product of a sperm donation by the late founder L. Ron Hubbard. He was a science fiction writer and created Scientology in 1954.

  • Scientologist executives broke up the marriage of Nicole Kidman because her father was a psychologist, a science frowned upon by the church. Morton went further to say that Nicole stayed silent on the issue for fear she would lose custody of their adopted children. She was also concerned that the 'audit' tape she had to make, regarding her sex life, might get leaked.
