CONFIRMED: Penélope Cruz and Emile Hirsch will attend TIFF 2012

The last time Penélope Cruz graced the Toronto International Film Festival was in 2009, for Pedro Almodovar’s Broken Embraces. The stunning Spanish actress looked absolutely ravishing on the red carpet then, and we expect more of the same this year at the gala for Twice Born, in which she stars alongside Emile Hirsch (who’s also attending TIFF). Cruz plays a single mother who brings her teenage son to Sarajevo, where his father died in the Bosnian conflict years ago. We’re going to guess that this film is not a comedy.
