London: Penelope Cruz, who gave birth to her son Leo early this year, says she tries to stays in shape by doing dance workouts.

"I love ballet and I love dancing and it`s a little boring for me to go to the gym because I`m used to the dancing discipline - it`s really hard but much more fun," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.

Cruz also admits that she credits Mediterranean cooking for keeping her weight under control.

"Spain is my country and Madrid is my city and I love living there. My family and friends are all there so that`s my place. I love Spanish food. My diet is the Mediterranean diet, which is good food. I eat well but I try to eat healthy," she said.
