Cruz Thrilled With Her New Muscle-Bound Body

The tough fitness regime PENELOPE CRUZ undertook in preparation for her role in new movie SAHARA has dramatically altered her appearance - she now boasts an impressive pair of biceps.

The 30-year-old brunette was determined to throw herself into as many dangerous stunts as possible - including camel-riding, jumping onto moving trains and fighting - so she bulked up before shooting started.

And although filming has now wrapped on the action adventure, her hard work has had a lasting physical effect.

She says, "I have muscles for the first time in my life. I'm always looking at them in the mirror."
