Newly-single superstar Penelope Cruz will stop at nothing to achieve her dream of becoming a Hollywood 'A' lister, according to her former lover TOMAS OBERMAIER.

The Gothika beauty, who split with long term boyfriend Tom Cruise in January (04), was ruthless in her pursuit of fame and fortune during her romance with Czech film-maker Obermaier.

And the 36-year-old, who dated Cruz for two-years from 1998, says he's feels nothing but sympathy for Minority Report hunk Cruise - who, he believes, also fell victim to Penelope's insatiable ambition.

Thomas explains, "In the end I was like a dog on a string just waiting for Penelope. I gave up everything for her because I was madly in love - but all she worried about was her film career.

"And when I heard she'd split from Tom Cruise because of their hectic work schedules, I felt a lot of sympathy for him.

"I thought, 'I know that feeling,' because it happened to me. She was totally driven and fiercely ambitious. And in the end she sacrificed our dream relationship to break into Hollywood."

Cruz is reportedly now dating Sahara co-star Matthew Mcconaughey.
