Penélope Cruz is on the cover of this fall’s V Magazine. The 37-year-old Spanish actress shared her feelings on motherhood, playing different roles, and her Pirates of the Caribbean co-star, Johnny Depp. “The biggest transformation is becoming a mother,” Cruz said. “It changes you forever.” Cruz has a baby boy with husband, Spanish actor Javier Bardem.
Cruz, who dons a Ralph Lauren tuxedo on the magazine’s cover, says playing someone else in films is really addictive. “You can go into a different state when you are portraying somebody… A part of you becomes almost obsessed with that other being,” she said. “That is the feeling I look for.”
Cruz also said Depp wears anything better than she does. “He even wore a dress in the movie he did with Javier [Bardem], Before Night Falls,” she said. “He wore that dress very well. Both star in the latest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, in theaters now.
