Cruz Honoured By Spanish Queen
The Spanish star was given her award at New York City's Spanish Institute last week (27Nov07).
Queen Sofia also acknowledged former U.S. President Bill Clinton for his "significant role as a world leader".
The institute's honorary president, designer Oscar de la Renta, joined the Queen in presenting the gold medal honours.
Clinton joked, "I was trying to figure out exactly why I would receive this award tonight. It may be because even though I'm not of Spanish descent, I've seen every one of Penelope Cruz's movies - and I liked them all."
