Fans looking forward to seeing Penelope Cruz and Matthew Mcconaughey in an intimate clinch in forthcoming film SAHARA will be disappointed - the actress claims there are "no love scenes" in the movie.

The stunning Spaniard met the Texan actor on the Moroccan set of the action adventure film only weeks after splitting from long-term love Tom Cruise in January 2004.

Cruz is very excited about the film, which hits American cinemas in March (05), but laments there were no saucy sequences.

She says, "I play a scientist and, believe me, there is a lot of action.

"We don't really have any love scenes, sorry. There's one scene at the beach that's romantic, but no love scenes, unfortunately."
