Love again for Penelope

In love again…
Penelope Cruz has spoken out, admitting she?s finally over her January breakup with Tom Cruise. She?s been seen wandering around with U-571 spunk Matthew McConaughey for the past few months and has finally admitted there is something going on. “I have no problems in recognising I have something with Matthew, because there’s nothing to hide,” she told Mexican newspaper Reforma. Apparently the pair met while filming Sahara in Morocco. “We became good friends and a month later it is something different. I think it’s part of the mystery of love… I can’t explain these things.” But she remains tight-lipped on most of the details. “It is something I prefer not to talk about because it always ends up coming back against you.”

…with the American sweetheart
More on Matthew…
Matthew McConaughey has joined the marketing world, agreeing to sign on as the face behind Stetson, the fragrance staple for many a western American dad. Apparently the scent is like the “modern cowboy” of the “American West” with “a rich blend of rugged woods and spice.” Mmmm rough and ready! The Texas-raised actor will appear in TV spots directed by 21 Grams auteur Alejandro Inarritu and print ads shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. The black-and-white commercials will debut later this month. Considering the scent “represents rugged masculinity, originality, independence, western heritage, and genuine American values,” we?re not sure whether we?ll get a guernsy of Matthew on our TV screens.

Wonder if he’s crooning about Delta
Who?s got a crush on Delta?
Never fear Delta, there are plenty more fish in the sea. Such as Robbie Williams for example, who has just revealed he has a bit of a crush on our favourite singer/soap star. Yep, that?s right; the 30-year-old English rogue has told Delta to remain single until he visits Australia, saying, “I’ve seen her, she is very, very pretty and I have had my eye on her for a long time.” He added ?stay celibate until I visit Australia very soon.” But 19-year-old Delta may be only on the shortlist; it seems Robbie is taking this dating thing quite seriously. “I’m currently auditioning for a girlfriend. It’s like the regional heats of Pop Idol.” He?s previously dated model Rachel Hunter, former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton and Nip/Tuck actress Valerie Cruz and recently dumped single mother-of-two Lisa Brash. Not sure whether Australia (or Delta for that matter) will approve of this match…
