Penelope Cruz Named Celebrity With Hottest Body By Fitness Magazine
Filed Under: Magazines

Penelope Cruz has the hottest celebrity body of 2013, according to the list drawn up by Fitness Magazine, which places the Spanish actress ahead of showbiz colleagues like Jennifer Lawrence and Sandra Bullock.

“‘The Counselor’ star welcomed her second child, daughter Luna, in July and popped back up on the red carpet in amazing shape just three months after giving birth,” the magazine said.

The 39-year-old actress credits the Mediterranean diet as key to regaining that stunning silhouette.

About Lawrence, star of “The Hunger Games” movies, the magazine said she went in for “agility drills, sprint intervals, medicine ball exercises and cardio on a stationary bike.”

As for Bullock, the celeb publication said “it’s hard to believe that the star of this year’s hit ‘Gravity’ is 49 years old,” and says her secret is mixing cardio and strength-building exercises for an hour every day, six days a week, a routine she complements with pilates, kickboxing and even weightlifting.

Also appearing on the list topped by Cruz are Kerry Washington, Scarlett Johansson, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Amanda Seyfried, Christina Aguilera, Allison Williams and Katy Perry. Rounding out Fitness Magazine’s 13 hottest bodies of the year are Blake Lively, Paula Patton, Paula Patton and Carrie Underwood.

Penelope Cruz Covers Wall Street Journal Magazine Winter 2014
Filed Under: Magazines

Taking a break from her busy schedule, Penelope Cruz covered the Winter 2014 issue of The Wall Street Journal Magazine.

While donning designer duds from Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent for the Alasdair McLellan-shot spread, the 39-year-old actress dished about her life as a mother and her future.

Highlights from Miss Cruz’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The Wall Street Journal Magazine!

On her future:
“Maybe in 10 years I’ll direct a feature film. There would have to be enough passion to give a year or two of my life.”

On her children:
“[Motherhood] changes everything in your life. It’s also going to change the way you approach your work. I always wanted to have children. When you already have your own child in your arms, you understand even more what it must mean to not have the ability.”

On her ultimate critic:
“I have no compassion for my own mistakes. Luckily, I also have a good sense of humor, so now I don’t beat myself up too much. It’s a good balance.”

Penelope Cruz & Salma Hayek Have Nicknames for Each Other; She Calls One Costar ‘One of My Favorite People in the World’
Filed Under: News & Rumors

Penelope Cruz has steered away for the spotlight for some time now, but only because she has been taking time to enjoy motherhood.
“I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter,” the Oscar winner told Allure magazine, referring to her daughter Luna she and husband Javier Bardem welcomed in July. “[Nursing] is addictive. It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.”

The couple, who have been married since July 2010, also have a 3-year-old son named Leo Encinas Cruz.

Speaking of childhood, the actress opened up about her own in the January 2014 isssue: “In my house every Sunday, everybody was cleaning the house. There was always music, and everybody was dancing, sometimes naked around the house. Not hippie, but very free.”
The 39-year-old is very close to her family and also spoke about the bond she has with her sister Monica and brother Eduardo.
“We are so close to each other. We tell each other everything,” she said. “We’re talking all the time, every day. We’re really, really close, the three of us. It’s my treasure to have this relationship with [my] brother and sister-it’s so beautiful.”

As for Penelope’s famous relationships, she called her Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides costar Johnny Depp “one of my favorite people in the whole world! He’s been such a good friend,” and said of fellow The Counselor cast member Cameron Diaz “She has this vibrant, great energy. Really full of life.”
Talking about her very close friendship with Salma Hayek, Penelope revealed the two have a nickname for each other.
“She’s one of my best friends. We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now,” she said. “So it was a way to call each other lazy. We slept in the same bed so many times and it was like she was always trying to wake me up and call me huevos. But that’s in the past. Now we both are mothers, so we don’t sleep that much.”
