Johnny Depp Praises Penelope Cruz, She Almost Trips [PHOTOS]

Penelope Cruz was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of El Capitan Theater on Friday (April 1). The actress had some very kind words for actor, and her Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides co-star, Johnny Depp, who then praised Penelope as well:

“She’s an inconceivably phenomenal mommy, which I’ve witnessed firsthand, and it’s pretty incredible,” Depp said on Friday of Cruz, who gave birth to a son in January. “She’s as loyal and true a friend as anyone could ever dream of and I’m very privileged to be able to have her in my life.”

Upon arriving at the Walk of Fame presentation, Cruz almost took a tumble. Thank goodness she was holding onto her husband Javier Bardem. The last thing she needs as a new mother is a broken ankle.
