When you think about how much money the top Hollywood movie stars get paid for their films, you could be forgiven for wondering why the choose to appear in television ads which sometimes do their image no real good. Just look at that awful recent Michael Caine ad for Sky, it was terrible but, being offered the amount that they are for such a small amount of work is hard to refuse.
With that said, there are some that manage to sign up to appear in an ad and actually go on to get their performance spot on in an ad that hits the nail on the head. One such star who has done just that, is Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz, who has recently appeared in the new Schweppes ad, which has proven to be quite the hit.
In the new Schweppes ad, which is titled What Did You Expect?, we get to see Penelope Cruz simply sizzle, proving that sometimes having a Hollywood superstar in an ad is a good thing. Penelope is in good company with the Schweppes, following in the footsteps of fellow Hollywood stars Nicole Kidman and Uma Thurman, who have both appeared in Schweppes ads in the past.
As for her acting career, Penelope Cruz has been linked to roles in a number of movies that are currently in development. Penelope is expected to appear in the movie La reina de España, where she will also serve as producer. Cruz is also linked to a role in the movie Gucci, which is still in the scripting stages, while she will play Magda in Spanish film Ma Ma.
