I love her work. She’s great at comedy, that’s a side of her that the American people didn’t see that much, but I knew, because I had seen her previous movies in Spain. – – jamon, jamon, La Nina.”

She continued, “She was brilliant as a comedy actress. She’s so quick, she’s so simple, and she has a great rhythm. So, just to be in front of her, you know, the biggest problems we face.” One of the films was that we had to stop some scenes because we were laughing all the time, so it was great.”

It was equally memorable for Cruise, who told ET that the pair have actually known each other for almost 30 years after meeting as neighbors in New York.

“In that film with Pedro, we only had one scene and it was all improvised,” Cruz said of his work. I am very excited, “And then in the second movie we did with Pedro, pain and gloryI played his mother in the flashback, so no scenes together.”

“We’ve known each other for almost 30 years,” she said. “We met here in New York. We were neighbors.”

While they only starred in two films together, Cruise later said official competitionIt felt like they had done at least ten because they know each other very well.

Neither would name names, Cruise said, adding that he drew inspiration from celebrities from all over Hollywood.

“I can’t name you,” Cruz said when asked if he drew inspiration for his character from people he’s worked with. “I took the good stuff from her, and the tough personality too. It’s not normal to find someone like Lola, but I also took inspiration from other artists, not just those in our industry, and I did my own little Frankenstein with all of these.”
