Penelope’s paparazzi standoff

Hollywood stunner Penelope Cruz risked missing a flight to Europe on Monday after she endured a fifteen minute standoff with paparazzi. The 31-year-old beauty refused to budge from her car at Los Angeles International Airport because of the hoard of paparazzi that trailed the actress from her Hollywood home.Cruz insisted that airport police remove the paparazzi before she made a mad dash for the departure terminal.It took the police more than 15 minutes to clear the area for a stubborn Cruz.The actress is furious with the paparazzi after one eagle-eyed snapper recently caught her embracing and kissing fellow Spaniard Javier Bardem during a romantic vacation in the Maldives in the Indian Ocean.The shot appeared just weeks after Cruz laughed off reports she was dating the actor.But it’s not the first time the sexy star has been at the top of the paparazzi’s hot list of celebrities — past romances with Tom Cruise and Matthew McConaughey made sure of that.
