A third follower simply wrote: "Gorgeous."

Penelope's longtime friend and fellow Hollywood star Salma Hayek also showed her appreciation for the stunning snap, commenting: "Wow!!"

It's been a busy few months for Penelope, who recently attended the 2023 Met Gala in May. The Pirates of the Caribbean star stunned in a sheer hooded ball gown from Chanel's SS88 collection at the event, which took place at New York's iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art on 3 May and invited its attendees to honor German-born designer Karl Lagerfeld in their outfits.

Salma penned a sweet tribute in the caption: "My dear Penelope, happy birthday. When a new year arrives there is comfort to know that we are not alone, and you and I will always have each other through this old friendship, which is the only thing getting old, becacuse you and I aren't! @penelopecruzoficial."

Penelope, who is married to actor Javier Bardem, previously opened up about their friendship on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, revealing that the pair became firm friends on the set of Bandidas after Salma picked her up from the airport before filming began.

"She picked me up at the airport and she said, 'You're not going to a hotel, you're coming to my house because this is hard at the beginning and you're going to feel very lonely,'" she told Ellen. 

"So she took me to her house. That's why now we're like sisters."
