Oscar-winner Penelope Cruz was so adamant on getting her stunts right in her upcoming film ‘Nine’ that even injuries did not deter the actress. Cruz who stars alongside Sophia Loren,Nicole Kidman,Judi Dench and Kate Hudson in the film,was hoisted up in the air for one particularly trying scene.
And according to film’s director Rob Marshall Cruz’s blood,sweat and tears went into nailing the take,Contactmusic reported.
“She’d be the last one on the sound stage working and I’d have to say,’Penelope,it’s over!’ In the middle of the number she does all this work with ropes,swinging on them,and she had formed calluses and her hands were bleeding. We told her she would have to wear gloves but she was like,’No,no,I have to feel it,” he said.
However,the 35-year-old actress was elated after sweating out and getting bloodied.
“We finished it and she was in tears,saying,’I loved every second. I want to install ropes in my bedroom so I don’t have to let go of it,” he added.
