Penelope Cruz likes a strong, younger man by her side and it seems like she's got what she's wanted.
Penelope and Josh Hartnett have been seen enjoying a romantic dinner date. The pair demanded a private table at trendy Los Angeles restaurant El Coyote.
When they discovered all the rooms at the hip diner were taken, Penelope and Josh rushed to top eatery The Little Door, where they were given the secluded Blue Room to enjoy their intimate dinner.
A waiter at the restaurant revealed Penelope and Josh held hands and kissed throughout the meal.
He told In Touch Weekly magazine: "Before they went, they kissed goodbye, they were touchy-feely all night, holding hands and kissing. They were cute."
After high-profile relationships with Tom Cruise and Matthew McConaughey, Penelope, 32, is said to be going to extreme lengths to keep her romance with Josh, 29, under wraps.
The couple avoided paparazzi waiting outside The Little Door by leaving separately.
