Woody Allen’s new film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, may be a sexy romp about a ménage-à-trois, but none of its stars — Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson — wanted to talk romance at the premiere Monday night at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood.
Bardem and Cruz, who reportedly have been dating since last fall, walked the red carpet separately. The pair first worked together on the Spanish film Jamon, Jamon.
“That was 17 years ago, a long time,” was all Bardem would say of working with Cruz again.
Johansson worked the press line minus fiancé Ryan Reynolds and was testy when asked if she has made any wedding plans yet.
“I just got engaged!” she protested. “Give me a little time!”
