Don’t get too excited about Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson’s “love scene” in Woody Allen’s upcoming Vicky Cristina Barcelona, because they’re not alone in the scene. It’s actually actually a threesome with Cruz’s on-screen hubby/real life boyfriend, Javier Bardem. (Remember Wild Things ? And every other movie that throws in girl-on-girl action with a dude to make it more acceptable.)
While this movie will surely draw tons of delusional dudes to theaters, it won’t be earning Cruz or Johansson any GLADD nominations. On the bright side, though, it may be the first film in a long time where ScarJo plays a slightly different character. Maybe.
Unconvincing lesbians/WTF is wrong with Penelope Cruz?
