- Story Text: Actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem were all smiles on Wednesday (September 6) as they arrived in Venice to present their new film "Loving Pablo".
The on-and off-screen couple were joined by the film's director Fernando Leon de Aranoa as they arrived by boat ahead of an afternoon news conference.
Cruz told Reuters Television she was happy to be back at the Venice Film Festival 25 year after her first appearance on the Lido waterfront for Bigas Luna's "Jamon, Jamon".
"Loving Pablo", based on true events, follows the rise and fall of drug lord Pablo Escobar (Bardem) and his love affair with famed Colombian journalist Virginia Vallejo (Cruz).
The film, which is screening out of competition at the festival, will receive its red carpet world premiere later on Wednesday.
