Cu Penelope Cruz STORYLINE: RALPH LAUREN DUMP PENELOPE CRUZ Fashion label Ralph Lauren has dropped Spanish actress PENELOPE CRUZ as a representative because she isn't a big enough star. According to press reports in the USA, Penelope's contract to be the face of Ralph Lauren fashion has not been renewed. The reports suggested that Ralph Lauren fashion doesn't think TOM CRUISE's doe eyed girlfriend has become as big a star as they had hoped and expected. Cruz starred in several blockbusters last year, including "Vanilla Sky" and "Captain Corelli's Mandolin", but has been accused of not making it 'in her own right'. However, she will continue to act as the face of one of Lauren's fragrances until 2003.
