Penelope Cruz: Nursing is addictive
In the January issue of Allure, Penelope Cruz opens up breast-feeding, Luna, the baby girl she welcomed in July with husband t Javier Bardem.
“I was breastfeeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive,” the Spanish-born Counselor star admits. “It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.”
Notoriously private, Cruz describes what her childhood was like.
“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,’
Also mom to son Leo, Cruz speaks of her good friend actress Salma Hayek.
“She’s one of my best friends. We call each other huevos [eggs],” Cruz says of Mexican actress. “It was because when we were working togther, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. 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.”
