Pregnant Penelope Cruz almost hurt at basketball match

London: Pregnant actress Penelope Cruz had a lucky escape during a Christmas Day trip to a basketball match when a towering player fell into the crowd and almost poleaxed her.

The `Vicky Cristina Barcelona` star attended the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Miami Dolphins in California on Saturday night with husband Javier Bardem, reported Contactmusic.

The 36-year-old actress, who is expecting her first child, narrowly avoided an injury when a Lakers player launched himself into the air reaching for the ball and smashed into a row of fans just inches from where Cruz and Bardem were sitting.
