Happy birthday, Penelope Cruz! The actress is celebrating her 42nd year today, and she's definitely feeling the love. BFF Salma Hayek took to Instagram to wish her a HBD, and she did it with an incredible throwback that proves these ladies haven't aged a bit.

In the pic, which was taken at the Dogma premiere in October of 1999, both actresses sport straight locks, sultry smiles, and sexy body-hugging dresses. Can you believe they've been friends for almost two decades? But while we love the photo, the best part of Hayek's post was the caption. "#happy#birthday to my #brilliant #beautiful #loyal @penelopecruzoficial You continue to #inspire me and I #feel #blessed that we are #friends," she captioned the post, throwing in a few emojis as well as a Spanish translation.

All of the birthday wishes are definitely not going unnoticed by Cruz. The 42-year-old took to her own Instagram to thank all her friends, family, and followers for their sweet messages with a selfie. See it below.
