No crazy diets for Penelope Cruz
London: Actress Penelope Cruz doesn`t believe in diet chart. Instead she 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 wants to slap women who worry about their age because 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.
"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.
