Penelope Cruz is dating Javier Bardem, according to the actor's loose-tongued friend and co-star Woody Harrelson.
The Sydney Morning Herald claims Harrelson let the secret slip at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Tuesday.
He was there to present his No Country for Old Men co-star with the Montecito Award for his contribution to film when he confirmed the two Spanish actors were an item.

He said: "I can't believe the luck Javier has. If you look at his biography - one page is just describing his journey and then the second page is all of the awards he's won.
"And not to mention, I found this out last night too - he's going out with Penelope Cruz!"
At the mention of Cruz, the crowd cheered while an embarrassed Javier, 38, put his head in his hands.

Although neither have ever confirmed they are in a relationship, the pair were spotted canoodling in the Maldives last autumn and on several dates.
The actor, who is nominated for an Oscar, met Penelope, 33, in 1992 when they both starred in Spanish film Jamon Jamon.
They were then reunited on the set of Woody Allen's new film last year, which is currently untitled and also stars Scarlett Johansson.
