Penelope performs striptease for 'Nine'

LONDON: Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz who shares space with a bevy of beauties in her upcoming film 'Nine', guarantees to stand out in the crowd with a burlesque performance.

The 35-year-old Oscar winner, whose co-stars include Sophia Loren, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard and Kate Hudson performs a racy dance while dressed in a lacy basque, stockings and high heels in the musical, reported Daily Mail online.

The 'Volver' star plays the seductive mistress of film director Guido Contini, played by Daniel Day-Lewis, in the 60 million pound production.

The movie explores how Contini confronted a mid-life crisis, with creative troubles and personal woes.

He tries to balance this with his women, including his wife, played by Cotillard, his mistress, played by Cruz, his muse, played by Kidman, and his costume designer, played by Judi Dench.
