Mónica Cruz Sánchez (born March 16, 1977), better known as Mónica Cruz, is a Spanish actress and dancer. She is also the youngest sister of fellow actress Penélope Cruz. She was hired as her sister's double as Angelica in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
In 2010, her sister Penélope was pregnant while filming scenes for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Towards the latter half of shooting, the appearance of her pregnancy was very apparent so the filmmakers had to figure methods of shooting around it. This included shooting Penélope in close up scenes while hiring Mónica to stand-in for long distance scenes as she appeared identical to her sister.
