(ANI): Actress Penelope Cruz was finalized for a role in Vicky
Cristina Barcelona after meeting with director Woody Allen for just
40 seconds. The Vanilla Sky star, who was offered the role of Maria
Elena in the romantic comedy, said that she expected the meeting to
last for at least 30 minutes.
However, it was over within 40 seconds, which the actress has
described 'the quickest job interview she has ever had'. "I was
warned our meeting wouldn't take long but I thought that would mean
30 minutes," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"Instead, he spoke to me for just 40 seconds. It was the
shortest meeting I've ever had with a director," she added.
