Reminiscing about the first time he worked with Penélope Cruz on 1997s Live Flesh, the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar told the New York Times, I remember that our biggest problem was how to make her look ugly.

We imagine thats still a problem for the director, who chose the lovely Cruz to star in his latest, Broken Embraces, their fourth film together. Tonight, hear what they have to say about their long working relationship and friendship at this TimesTalk. New York Times Magazine editor-at-large Lynn Hirschberg moderates the discussion.
