London: Actress Penelope Cruz was offered a role in the upcoming ‘Sex And The City’ film after she admitted watching the first movie 15 times.

Director Michael Patrick King revealed that the Spanish beauty was offered a cameo in the film after she revealed she was a huge fan of the 2008 hit.

"It`s interesting because Penelope said to me, `I`ve seen that first movie 15 times! I put it on when I want to feel happy and I put it on when I want to feel sad.` Penelope is a devoted follower of those girls and Mr Big so I needed a part and I thought, `Who better to play that part than Penelope`?" the Daily Star quoted King as saying.

"But Penelope didn`t approach me - I went after her. She`s not playing herself whereas we also have Liza Minnelli who is playing herself and Miley Cyrus who also plays herself,” he added.
