When most people lose their camera or have it stolen on a vacation they cuss for a few minutes, blame the local population and if they are American probably go and eat at a McDonalds to get over their misery. That's what normal people do. What Penelope Cruz did was get on the phone to her lawyer and quicker than you can say naked photos with Javier Bardem, Penelope's attorney fired off a letter to the tabloids warning them against publishing any photos of Penelope they may think are exclusive.
While I understand what he is doing, and why since Penelope would obviously like a piece of the pie so to speak, I think he is going overboard. There must have been thousands and thousands of photos of Penelope on her recent vacation taken by the paps. What pictures could she have taken they didn't get? More photos with her sister doing even more crazy things? More photos with Javier? Perhaps the three of them together. I don't really know, and I wouldn't have suspected they include any of those things if this massive attack had not been launched by her attorney.
Now this also causes any photos of Penelope to come under scrutiny even if they were obtained legally because the tabloids will not know for 100% sure that a pap took them or if they came from the lost camera. What photos could possibly be so important?
