For a first taste of American comedy films, the sequel to a landmark Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson comedy about the fashion industry isn't too shabby.

Spanish actress Penélope Cruz remembers seeing the original 2001 "Zoolander" movie five or six times, so she had no doubts when Stiller, its director and star, offered her the role of Valentina in the sequel.

Cruz, in Madrid promoting “Zoolander 2,” says she is eager to repeat the experience.

“It doesn’t seem like an easy genre, although I always wanted to try it, and I really want to do it more,” she told EFE.

She has been promoting the film on social media for several weeks, even becoming mock-jealous when the movie's protagonist, Derek Zoolander (Stiller), had a fling with supermodel Cara Delevingne on social media.

After Zoolander shared a long post about a short-lived romance with Delevingne, Cruz wrote, “I forgive you, Derek. I'm here waiting for you. Behave yourself in Italy, please. I don't forgive you, @caradelevingne.” 

I forgive you, Derek. I'm here waiting for you . Behave yourself in Italy, please. ��. I don't forgive you @caradelevingne ��Te perdono, Derek. Estoy aquí esperándote. Por favor, compórtate en Italia. ��. No te perdono @caradelevingne ��#Repost @zoolander with @repostapp. ・・・ Guys. Over the course of my 3 hour relationship with Cara Delevingne i learned a lot about myself. I learned a relationship is like a beautiful bird. If there is love, it can take flight. But if the bird is caged, it begins to feel trapped, like as if it was in a cage. but then if someone is calling that bird “more washed up than a russians blue jeans” or “dumber than brie”, then the bird gets it’s feelings super hurt. But then if the bird tries to get one last french kiss goodbye, and the girl punches him right in the beak and then hits the bird with his selfie stick (which you can pay me for ANYTIME), then thats lame to do to the bird. THEN! THEN! She gets the bird in a half nelson and threatens to get a restraining odor, that’s super lame. Then she nearly broke the birds ARM! Which REALLY-REALLY HURT CARA!!!! Like you could have broken the birds WING! Anyway… I WILL triumph in all of this. Our relationship ended as it began. With all love, respect and now a deep mistrust for cara delvigne. Whoever that is. Call me when you get a modeling career. I could have HELPED YOU. You were too old for me anyways. Now I know everyone has my back, and the last thing I want is a flame war on my insta. I dont need the negativity. Like I said, it’s all love. But if you wanted to go hate on HER insta and leave comments on what a HUGE mistake she just made, and tell her I’m totally happy and never think about her all the time and am probably out boning liek a million models already here in Paris. Please feel free to do that. #Namaste. Switching my Raya location to #ROME tomorrow. See you soon @penelopecruzoficial ��.

“Zoolander 2” stars Stiller – who also directed, cowrote and produced the movie – and parodies the superficiality of the fashion world. But it's a largely loving romp that features cameos from Anna Wintour, Valentino and Kate Moss.

The movie opens in theaters Feb. 12.

In addition to “Zoolander 2,” Cruz next Saturday she will go to the Goya Awards where she will compete for a best actress award for the Spanish film, “Ma Ma,” in which she plays a woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer.
