The actress - who doesn't like talking about her private life - has always been left disaspointed on the romantic day.
She said: “I do not like talking about love. It is too revealing. But I have had so much love in my life, and I am always open to it. Valentine’s Day cards means nothing to me. I have never sent one – and never had one.
“I never talk about romance. I’m afraid of what might come out if I talk. There was gossip about Matt Damon and myself after we made the film
All the Pretty Horses
. We said there was no truth in it but we kept getting asked about it. I thought: 'Why do we have to explain? It is not right that I am being asked if I am with someone or not.’ "
The 34 year old actress who dated
star Tom Cruise for three years says her close family is the reason why she believes she is lucky in love.
She said: “I like to think I have a proper view of love. Age does not come into it. I love older people and I love children.
“I have been lucky: love has always been there. My father and my mother, Eduardo and Encarna, brought me and my sister, Monica, and brother, Eduardo, to love and appreciate each other. A close family is very important. It can set you up for life.”
The Spanish beauty has been nominated for an Oscar for her role in
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
– in which she plays a woman who embarks on a three-way relationship with her ex-husband and his new girlfriend, played by Scarlett Johansson.
