Movie siren Penelope Cruz is teaming up with a group of troubled youths for a new photography project.

The Spanish actress has snapped delinquents at the famed San Fernando, California hostel, which has been a refuge for problem kids since the 1920s and plans to show her photo skills in an upcoming exhibition.

Cruz reveals she was introduced to the Pacific Lodge boys by boyfriend Matthew McConaughey, who has become a mentor for some of the kids there.

She says: "Everyone deserves a second chance and they've suffered a lot."
