Cruz spokesman: Couple has 'decided to split'
LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- The "sexiest man alive" is available again.
Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz "have decided to split," Cruz spokesman Robert Garlock told The Associated Press Friday. McConaughey's rep, Alan Nierob, confirmed the breakup, first reported by People magazine.
The couple costarred in 2005's "Sahara."
McConaughey, People's reigning hunk of hunks, appeared in this year's "Failure to Launch."
This fall, Cruz, 32, stars in Pedro Almodovar's "Volver" ("Return"), which just made a splash at the Cannes Film Festival.
Cruz and McConaughey, 36, parted ways four weeks ago due to busy work schedules, People reports.
Paris Hilton Fender-Bender Caught on Tape
Hmm, so in CA you can hit a car and leave the scene as long as you tell someone else to pass along the info to the owner of the car that was hit? Of course she'll get away with it too. :ohno

LOS ANGELES — Paris Hilton had a fender-bender accident when her Range Rover backed into a car in a parking garage after a shopping trip, her publicist said Friday.
Hilton backed into a parked Honda Civic on Thursday. A videotape on the TMZ.com Web site showed Hilton getting into the car, saying goodbye to someone and backing up. The sound of a crash followed.
The video showed scrapes on the bumpers of both vehicles.
The Rover stopped briefly then continued on toward the exit of the parking structure.
TMZ.com indicated Hilton failed to leave contact information for the Honda's owner and thus may have violated laws against hit-and-run. Her publicist denied that.
"Did she commit a crime? No," Elliot Mintz said.
"She was swarmed by paparazzi," he said. "The intensity of the lights, flashbulbs, momentarily disoriented her. She backed up, there was a minor fender-bender. No injuries. She then told me she notified one of the parking people at the facility how to contact her and asked the person to please pass that along" to the owner of the struck car.
"She did the correct thing and she would not leave the scene of a crime," he said.
Mintz said Hilton is insured.
"Paris is a very responsible and a very good driver. ... She takes her driving seriously," Mintz said. "This was unfortunate ... it will be handled appropriately."
The video also showed that Hilton was not wearing her seatbelt. However, Mintz noted the video's brevity and that it did not show whether she put on the belt before reaching the street.
