Looking stunning just a few months after giving birth to her daughter - Penelope Cruz provided the eye candy at a screening of The Counselor in London. Ridley Scott's thriller has a host of big names on board including Michael Fassbender and Penelope's husband Javier Bardem. Fassbender takes on the title role, while Cruz is his girlfriend - filming their romantic scenes with Javier around - Michael joked was tricky: SOUNDBITE (English) Actor, Michael Fassbender, saying: ''It was awkward yeah. No he was cool he came into a few rehearsals and pretended he'd left something in the room but you know those guys are consummate professionals but those scenes are always kind of awkward to be honest so it's not a threat to Javier I am sure he's very comfortable with his marriage.'' Famously private, Javier and Penelope arrived separately - and in fact don't share screen time. SOUNDBITE (English) Actor, Javier Bardem, saying: ''Unfortunately Penelope and I we have not shared any scenes I have only worked with Cameron and with Michael.'' Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt complete the all star cast line up. As for the film's star rating we'll have to wait and see what the critics think when the film gets released on October 25th,.
