Penelope Cruz Doesn't 'Do Crazy Diets'

June 26, 2012

Penelope Cruz has been at home with her 17-month-old son and has found a new love for cooking. The actress says she doesn't like to diet, but instead makes sure to eat fresh food everyday. 

"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. I don't do crazy diets, just the good Mediterranean food that I love because it's important to eat well." 

Cruz ensures to live a healthy lifestyle, but isn't worried about getting older. In fact, she's embracing it. 

"When I hear a woman who is in her early 30's is worrying about growing old, I just want to slap her," Cruz said. "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 doesn't 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."
