When Woody Allen finds a muse, does he ever find a muse! The director, who is in Rome to film The Bop Decameron, has returned to Spanish star Penelope Cruz to provide the requisite sex appeal Allen has long been known for with his leading ladies.

On Monday, Cruz was spotted on set for the first day of filming wearing what some reports are calling lingerie and others a tight fitting mini dress. Either way, action was hot as Cruz dropped her robe to reveal her sexy curves in the outfit.

The film, which Variety reports is modeled after Italian writer Giovanni Boccaccio's 1350 work The Decameron, features a who’s who cast of Hollywood indie stars, including Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page and Jesse Eisenberg. However, with Cruz flaunting her amazing post-baby body, all eyes are sure to be on the 37-year-old new mom. Boccaccio's work is known for it's racy material, a fact sure to delight Cruz's fans.

Cruz and Allen previously teamed up for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, a film also set and filmed in Europe that starred Cruz’s soon to be husband, Javier Bardem. The two welcomed their first child, a boy, in January.

    I am pleased to hear that rumor. I hope that unlike some of his other period pieces this will be entertaining.
