Penelope Cruz says she couldn’t hold back laughter on ‘Pirates’ set

Washington: Penelope Cruz has admitted that she had a tough time while shooting serious scenes in new ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie alongside Johnny Depp – because she couldn’t stop laughing.

“The main problem is that he’s so funny it was hard to film the dramatic scenes, because I could not stop laughing,” Contactmusic quoted Cruz as saying.

“You never know what will happen next,” she added.

The Spanish actress plays pirate’s daughter Angelica in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’.

Penelope previously starred with Johnny in 2001 movie ``Blow`` and says they always have a good time together.

“Both times have been amazing. The funny thing is, we were saying to each other, we get along so well but we play characters who always fight,” she told Empire magazine.
