Add an extra syllable: cruuziz, like cruises. (Hence the word play in the English-language media when Tom Cruise was going out with Pe Cruz, both surnames are pronounced the same.)How do you pronounce it In Penelope Cruz's ? Just like that /iz/
O que hace mucho tiempo que no roda ninguna peli."Latest film" is the best choice here - although you technically could say "last film", it does give the impression that she won't be making any more.
