Penelope Cruz Dresses as Nintendo's Super Mario, Plus What Else She's Been Up To

Penelope Cruz stars in a Super Mario commercial.

In a new Super Mario Bros. commercial, you'll see Penelope Cruz as you've never seen her before - with a mustache and dressed in a pair of overalls. In the TV spot, she and her sister are playing the new Super Mario Bros. 2 against each other, and when Penelope loses a bet, she's forced to go out in public dressed as Mario. Although actresses typically have to alter their appearance for a role, it's great to see her sense of humor come out when she dresses as the famous video game character. Other than co-starring in a Nintendo ad, what else has she been up to lately?

W magazine cover

The 38-year-old takes a much more covered up approach on the September cover of W magazine. While we're used to seeing her in exquisite gowns, on the cover she's donning a black Givenchy turtleneck, a huge blue and gold Lynn Ban necklace and Yves Saint Laurent gloves. The photo has a vintage feel and it would have been an incredible shot if not for her arm draped over her head. We get the idea, but her hand looks awkward, especially while wearing the gloves. However, the rest of it is fantastic right down to the expression in her eyes.

2013 calendar

The beauty is the new face of Campari's 2013 calendar. She recently posed for photog, Kristian Schuller, who did the shoot in an ornate Paris mansion that was decked out in floral wallpaper, large draperies and mirrors and couches framed in gold gilding. It's a good thing the stunner looks lovely in red as that's the only color she'll be sporting for the shoot. Other famous faces who have posed for the calendar in the past include Jessica Alba in 2009, Eva Mendes in 2008 and Salma Hayek in 2007. Only 9,999 copies of the calendar will be sold.

Pregnancy rumors

Don't start breaking out the cigars just yet. Rumors have been flying around that the Spanish siren is preggers again with her second child. As with most pregnancy talk around Hollywood, it's all false. She and her hottie husband, Javier Bardem, have a 17-month-old son, Leonardo. Regardless of how many kids they choose to have, there's no doubt it's going to be one good looking family.
