Penelope Cruz wants to slap women who complain

By Alexandra Heilbron on May 20, 2011 | 8 Comments

Penélope Cruz, 37, who’s currently starring alongside Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, says she doesn’t like when women complain about getting old. She thinks women should embrace their wrinkles, because they show life experience. She told Metro: “When I hear a woman who is in her early 30s is worrying about growing old, I just want to slap her. When I’m 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.”

    ha ha like everyone else in the world she will start to complain soon enough. And in Hollywood, she will start to get lifts and tucks and that will be considered hippocritical.
