If you don’t want to take our word for how much Mónica Cruz looks like her older sister, Penélope Cruz, just take a look at the photo we’ve included above. Per Hollywood Life, there is about a three-year age gap between the sisters, though they look remarkably alike. They aren’t the only celebrity siblings who look like twins.
As shared by the Independent and as included in the roles listed on her IMDb page, Mónica Cruz served as her sister’s body double for some of the scenes in the film “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” because of Penélope’s pregnancy at the time. The Cruz sisters also shared the screen with Johnny Depp and he and Penélope Cruz kindled a relationship. Director Rob Marshall was quoted by the Independent as saying, “We actually asked Monica to help us out with some of the wide shots and some of the long shots when we needed a different silhouette.”
Later, in 2013, it was announced by USA Today that both sisters were pregnant at the same time.
