Who stole the monkey?
Picture this: Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek in matching clothes, sitting in adjoining jail cells, caught together in the act of stealing.
It's quite an image, especially considering that both lovely Latin imports-Cruz is from Spain, Hayek from Mexico-can't keep track of all the money Hollywood is throwing at them lately.
Cruz is currently working opposite Tom Cruise in "Vanilla Sky," while Hayek will be cozying up soon with Antonio Banderas in "Frida Kahlo."
So how did the two red-hot actresses almost end up in jail? As Cruz tells it, the best friends accidentally stole a big ape. "We do crazy things together. We like to dress up in the same exact outfits. I think we both love ourselves a lot," Cruz laughs. "One day, we went into a store and we almost stole a monkey, a huge monkey, because we were playing with this toy and we forgot that we had it and we left the store with it and the thing started to go off. They thought we were robbing the store!" Fortunately, the security forces recognized the beautiful duo, and no charges were pressed.
