Actor Penelope Cruz relies on home cooked meals to keep her trim. “I am a housewife and it’s beautiful, the best thing in the world. I know how to cook and it's important to me to make fresh food every day. I don't do crazy diets, just the good Mediterranean food that I love because it's important to eat well,” contactmusic.com quoted Cruz as saying.
The 38-year-old does not worry about getting older. She once said she she can’t wait to have wrinkles. She believes wrinkles tell a person's life story. “When I hear a woman in her early 30s is worrying about growing old, I just want to slap her. When I am 80, I want to look in the mirror and see an 80-year-old woman.
My grandmother had so many wrinkles and every wrinkle told a story. I want to experience every year of my life for what it is,” she said. “It does not mean I am against somebody who does a little retouch or has plastic surgery. I don't judge people who do it. I just don't like how women complain about growing old,” she said. Cruz has a 17-month-old son Leonardo with husband Javier Bardem.
