LATEST: Actress Penelope Cruz rushed to Berlin as soon as she heard TOM
CRUISE was visiting the German capital, because she was desperate to see her ex
The pair - who split in January (04) - were reunited when Penelope checked
into the FOUR SEASONS HOTEL, where Cruise is staying, after catching a flight
from the Moroccan set of her new movie SAHARA on Monday (05APR04).
Pals claim the actress was eager to meet up with Cruise - who is scouting
locations in Berlin for upcoming sequel MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3 - because she's
struggling to cope in the aftermath of their separation.
A friend tells Britain's The Sun tabloid, "Penelope booked in under a
false name but everyone knew who she was. They are still incredibly close and
love each other's company.
"She wanted to see Tom and decided she had to see him so she got on a
plane pretty much straight away."
