SEX WORKER ROLE
Anna in To Rome with Love 2012
Character Is A Prostitute
In “To Rome With Love,” Penélope plays Anna, a high-class prostitute. Following a series of errors, Anna gets sent to the wrong suite, where a sexually inexperienced newlywed couple is staying. Anna decides to make herself useful by teaching the husband and wife a few lessons in love.
Penélope says of her character:
“This is a character that doesn’t think, doesn’t have a filter. She’s completely in the moment. She’s like a child that way. She doesn’t mind offending somebody. I’m much more controlling than she is, so it’s very liberating to play somebody that is so free.”
