09:30 01 April 2005
Penelope Cruz plays charades to relax.
The screen beauty says she loves the classic game so much she spent hours persuading cast and crew, on location in the desert for new movie 'Sahara', to play it with her.
She revealed to Britain's Hello magazine: "I had to insist for hours before they agreed to play charades.
"I don't remember who won but we were sleeping in tents and trailers because we were in the desert where there were no hotels, no phones. I was forced to relax."
Meanwhile, Penelope is so impressed with her new muscles she can't stop admiring them.
The actress had to tone up for the adventure movie, which also stars her lover Matthew McConaughey.
She told Britain's Sunday Times Culture magazine: "I have muscles for the first time in my life. I'm always looking at them in the mirror and showing them off to my friends and family."
