New York: She plays a temptress who seduces Captain Jack Sparrow in the latest `Pirates Of The Caribbean` flick but pregnant Penelope Cruz is finding it hard to fit into the binding corsets.

The 36-year-old is five months pregnant with her first child and her ever changing shape is a challenge to the film`s wardrobe department, reported New York Post online.

"It has become really difficult to get her fitted because her measurements keep changing and she can`t breathe in the corsets anymore," said a source.

When they started shooting in Hawaii over the summer, the newly pregnant star`s bump was non-existent. But at five months gone, there is no hiding Cruz`s growing stomach.

The film, the fourth in the series, will see the return of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, as well as Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa.

Cruz announced she and husband Javier Bardem were expecting last month after the pair married secretly in July in the Bahamas.
