Penelope Cruz and husband Javier Bardem ended months of speculation today when her agent announced that the actress is, indeed, four months pregnant.
Cruz's bump watch has been one of the most heated around the world after photos of her surfaced looking markedly larger than usual. I am sure this baby will be undeniably gorgeous with two parents like Cruz and Bardem.
My husband, on the other hand, refers to Cruz as "tiny head."
There seems to be a host of actors and actresses in Hollywood on which men and women cannot agree. Most men find Gisele Bundchen stunning, but beyond her hair and amazing bod, I think she kind of looks like a horse.
Cruz is stunning to most women, but many men are mixed on her, it seems.
Some women -- Natalie Portman, Monica Bellucci -- are universally accepted as being lovely. Others like Jessica Simpson or Jennifer Love Hewitt or Jessica Alba appeal more to men while Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman appeal more to women.
Meanwhile no man gets the appeal of actors like Javier Bardem ("he's fat!" my husband cries) or Russell Crowe. We women see the raw masculinity while men seem to think we should only be attracted to the Ashton Kutchers and Ben Afflecks of the world.
The disparity often seems to have more to do with the body versus face dilemma. Men seem to prefer a cute face and curvy body while women go for classic beauty and very thin bodies. Men seem to think women should want only cut men while women are often drawn to men who are uber-masculine regardless of bod.
It does make for amusing conversation among the sexes, of course. In my mind, Penelope Cruz is one of the most beautiful women in the world and she's married to one of the sexiest men. I have no doubt the two of them will make amazing parents and I can't wait to see how it all unfolds.
After putting up with Tom Cruise for so long and then watching him rebound (and have a child) with Katie Holmes, I wish her nothing but happiness!
Are there beautiful people over whom you and your spouse disagree?
