Penelope Cruz will be going to Cannes with co-star Johnny Depp for the May 14 premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She'll be hopping over to Rome to shoot a film with Woody Allen this summer, and now she suggests to EW that she'd like to make a stopover on the Glee set, à la Gwyneth Paltrow.

Not only is Glee the only show that she and husband Javier Bardem watch on TV, she'd like to do more musicals. "Gwyneth was amazing. She was so funny and she has such an amazing voice. And once you’ve done a musical you always want to do it again. I would love to do more musicals, in TV or film. Not on Broadway, because I’m not brave enough to do that yet. But I love musicals.” She's already strutted her musical talent in Nine, see below. How could you not love her?
