Penelope Cruz as Angelica Teach: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Angelica, played by Penélope Cruz in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, is the daughter of Blackbeard and a former love interest of Jack Sparrow's. She first met Jack just before she was to take a vow of celibacy in a Spanish convent; she later blames Jack for her corruption, although Jack counters this argument citing that she was 'hardly innocent' to begin with. Angelica is first mate of the Queen Anne's Revenge. She claims to be Blackbeard's daughter, and constantly is shown to care for his well-being yet is on the edge of betraying him for her own desires and usually manipulating him into doing what she wants. After the battle at the Fountain of Youth she unintentionally poisons herself while trying to remove Barbossa's poison-laced sword from Blackbeard's chest, Jack tricks Blackbeard into sacrificing his life to save Angelica's. Although Blackbeard intended to let her die so he could survive, Angelica holds Jack responsible for her father's death, though he angrily pointed out that he was doing what a good father would've done. Jack then maroons her on a deserted island (which is within a well-traveled trade route for her to signal any passing ships), and gives her a pistol loaded with one shot to shoot herself rather than starve to death. Seeing that he still loves her, Angelica tries to convince Jack not to leave her on the island by claiming she has knowledge of several artifacts that can give him control of the ocean and that she is pregnant with his child, but he doesn't fall for either of her ruses. It was then Angelica finally admits her love for Jack, who is somewhat touched by this, but he still leaves to row away, as he knows she still cannot be trusted. Angered, Angelica then uses the sole round from her pistol in an attempt to kill Jack as he rows away, but misses, inciting Jack to taunt her of having done so. This left Angelica to rant out in Spanish against Jack as he rows away from her.
