Penelope Cruz was terrified of singing in new film 'Nine'.
Speaking on the red carpet at the London premiere of the musical movie in Leicester Square last night (03.12.09), the 35-year-old Spanish actress admitted her singing was a bit rusty because she hadn't done it in public for years.
Singing was terrifying because it was new and because it was my first time.
The 35-year-old star told BANG Showbiz: "Singing was terrifying because it was new and because it was my first time.
"It was like doing theatre, but I only did theatre as a student in Spain."
Penelope - who plays seductress, Carla Albanese, who seduces Daniel Day-Lewis' character, director Guido Contini, in the film - also revealed her sexy look in the movie was aided by some very good costume designers.
She said: "The woman who designed the costumes for every one of us, I think she really must be one of the most amazing artists."
Penelope was joined on the red carpet by several of her co-stars, including Nicole Kidman, 42, Kate Hudson, 30, and Dame Judi Dench, 74.
Judi admitted she was surprised by how well all the actresses got along, saying: "They're wonderful, I mean every single one, I swear you're going to be surprised. They're going to surprise everyone."
