Nearly nude Penelope Cruz straddles an anvil in new calendar

London, Nov 15 (ANI): Penelope Cruz's new calendar sees the actress posing in a number of red dresses, including one where she is a nearly naked and straddling an anvil.

Italian spirits brand Campari released 13 images from the limited-edition annual, all of which feature the Oscar-winning actress participating in superstitious acts like breaking mirrors, walking under ladders, opening umbrellas indoors, and more, the Mirror reported.

She was announced as the calendar's star back in August, and she got to work shooting the then-secret theme in Milan.

She recently told Elle magazine that posing for the infamous calendar was like "saying goodbye to fear."(ANI)
