London: Actress Penelope Cruz says being a housewife is the "best thing in the world".

Cruz, 38, who is married to Javier Bardem, has been staying at home since giving birth to 17-month-old son Leonardo, her son with husband Javier Bardem.

"I`m 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," a website has quoted Cruz as saying.
