Spanish siren Penelope Cruz has controversially claimed her character in new film Don't Move is "a little pleased" at being raped.

The girlfriend of Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise plays a destitute woman who becomes involved with a high powered doctor in the Italian movie, which is directed by Sergio Castellitto, who also plays the medical expert.

And Cruz says of her character, "Her father has been raping her since she was 12-years-old, and that's why, when (the doctor) rapes her, she is even a little pleased because he is a surgeon. A man from a higher social class."

The movie - NON TI MUOVERE in Italian - has just begun shooting in Rome.
