In April 2024, she will celebrate her half-century (just think about it!) anniversary. Approaching this milestone, the Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is in excellent shape, still attracting the attention of men.
As Penelope Cruz herself notes, she is willing to expose herself on film, but she is not ready to put her personal life on public display. Some topics, even at the age of 49, she discusses with great caution. However, fortunately, age is not among them.
According to Cruz, aging itself doesn’t bother her in the slightest. It was not always the case, though. For example, before turning thirty, she used to feel deeply saddened as her birthday approached. But that has passed.
“People have been asking me about my age since I turned twenty,” confessed the star of “The Main Role” in an interview with Elle. “Earlier, my only weapon was to ignore tactless questions. Now I act more cunningly and pretend not to have heard.”
The actress views the upcoming milestone as a “beautiful event” that she would like to celebrate in grand style surrounded by family and close friends. For the passionate Spanish woman, a celebration is primarily about unforgettable emotions. And she has reasons to celebrate – she is healthy, her loved ones are nearby, and she has successfully mastered the skill of living in the moment, which is very important to her.
Undoubtedly, the Hollywood beauty’s impeccable appearance contributes to her inner confidence. To preserve her attractiveness and gracefully carry it through the years, the actress has established clear rules for herself, which she has been following for many years.
For example, Penelope has completely abandoned harmful habits and practices Bikram yoga, also known as hot yoga, which takes place in a heated room. She has also eliminated all dairy products and sugar from her diet. Her long-standing pride – her luxurious mane – also requires effort in care, and she never neglects it. Thanks to her personally tested rituals, the actress will approach her fiftieth year with a minimal number of wrinkles and, it seems, without any imperfections anywhere.
Her status as a mother helps her confidently embrace the sixth decade of her life. Alongside her husband, Javier Bardem, the Spanish actress is raising 12-year-old Leo and 10-year-old Luna. The actress admits that she adores her children, but she and her husband have no intention of influencing their future choices. The focal point for caring parents is the personal time of their heirs, which they are free to spend as they wish.
Only in one aspect does the star remain uncompromising – the use of gadgets is strictly prohibited. Cruz explains the absence of phones for her daughter and son by stating that in the modern world, “it is so easy to succumb to manipulation, especially when the brain is still forming.” The measure is strict, but she knows best.
