Grey-haired Penelope Cruz ages overnight

Wednesday September 14, 2011

Penelope Cruz has returned to work after taking a long summer break to vacation with her nine-month-old son and husband Javier Bardem.

And she is looking a far cry from her usual glamorous self.

The Spanish actress covered her long glossy brunette hair in a grey bobbed wig as she filmed scenes for her movie Venuto Al Mondo (In The World).

She plays a single mother who accompanies her teenage son to the Sarajevo of today, the hometown of his father who was killed while still a young man during the 1992-1995 Bosnian war.

Penelope looked unrecognisable in her khaki trousers, green blouse and brown jacket as she filmed scenes in Sarajevo International Airport.

The Italian film is adapted from the bestselling book by Margaret Mazzantini and is directed by the author's husband Sergio Castellitto.

Filming in Sarajevo is expected to end on September 21st and will continue on the Croatian island of Korcula and in Rome.
