Penelope Cruz: Breastfeeding “Addictive”
Penelope Cruz loves to breastfeed. The actress tells Allure, “I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive. It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.” Cruz also reveals that she and pal Salma Hayek have a pretty cozy relationship.
“She’s one of my best friends,” says Cruz. “We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now.” She continues, “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. But that’s in the past. Now we both are mothers, so we don’t sleep that much.”
Cruz also has high praise for her Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides co-star Johnny Depp. “This is one of my favorite people in the whole world!” she says of the actor. “He’s been such a good friend. I can always count on him. He’s very intelligent and sensitive. I only have great things to say, because he is untouchable.”
