Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz is giving fans an insight into her life as a successful actress - she's publishing a book of photos she's snapped behind the scenes of 35 films.

The Vanilla Sky beauty has taken advantage of the unusual spectacles she's witnessed during her 13-year acting career, by photographing moments including gruesome make-up sessions, fight scene rehearsals and the unusual leisure activities of her co-stars.

She tells THE NEW YORK POST, "I've got some great shots from being in situations where normal photographers wouldn't be. Directors in the bathtub, weird things like that."
