One reason to look forward to 2013 is Penelope Cruz. The 38-year-old actress is featured in the calendar for alcohol brand Campari.

“I found the superstitious theme extremely intriguing and stimulating,” Penelope says of the shots. “As an actress I am often challenged to portray the ‘unexplainable’ and this shoot was no different. We created a character who had to convey a strong, positive attitude, and really get to the heart of each superstition and dispel these myths by promoting confidence. I hope people enjoy the photos as much as we have enjoyed creating them.”

Only 9,999 copies of the Campari Calendar are in print. So see if you can get your hands on one. Or just enjoy the pictures here on our great website.
