Spanish actress Penelope Cruz has denied reports that she is pregnant with actor, boyfriend Javier Bardem’s baby.
The Oscar-winning actress was spotted sporting a slight bump on several occasions recently fuelling reports that she was pregnant with her first child.

But Cruz decided to put a stop to the reports at Toronto International Film Festival, where she walked the red carpet during the premiere of her upcoming film ‘Broken Embraces’.

“I start getting some presents from friends saying, ‘Congratulations, you’re pregnant.’ And I say, ‘No, I’m not, so return the presents’,” the actress told USA Today.

Prior to her denial, Cruz was spotted smoking cigarettes while hanging out with fellow actress Salma Hayek at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont hotel.

She plays the character of Lena, a secretary and part-time call girl determined to become a big screen success in Pedro Almodovar’s movie.

The film is slated to be released in limited theaters on November 20 later this year.

Cruz won the Best Actress Oscar this year for her role of a fiery artiste in Woody Allen’s ‘Vicky, Christina, Barcelona’ opposite Bardem
