Amping up promotions for her latest movie, Penelope Cruz headed over to the "Twice Born" photocall at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada on Thursday (September 13).

Fidgeting with her hair a couple times, the 38-year-old actress stunned on the black carpet in form-fitting dress pants paired with a purple and black button-up blazer.

Talking about her character, Penelope said, “I knew the book [Twice Born] two years before I became a mother and really connected with it and understood this woman, even if I had never been in the situations she had been in.”

Hitting theaters on November 9th, "Twice Born" follows a single mother who brings her teenage son to Sarajevo, where his father died in the Bosnian conflict years ago.
