Penelope Cruz, 34, recently dished to Britain’s Cosmopolitan about her insecurities and getting old. Though she is comfortable in her own skin, she admits to feeling a little unsure of herself at time, “I’ve always had my insecurities and most of them have not gone away. I guess we’re all vulnerable."

Cruz mentions that she has addressed some of those insecurities but that they never quite go away, no mater how much soul searching she's done, “I know myself a little bit more. Of course, some
things remain a mystery and that is a search that never ends, but I
wish I was less insecure."

On thing that she is absolutely not afraid of? Growing old. "Age holds absolutely no fear for me," Cruz says. "There is so much enjoyment ahead."

The Spanish actress mentions Hollywood icons Meryl Streep and Sophia Loren as prime examples of how to age gracefully. "Sophia is 74 and amazing – every time I talk to her, she’s full of wonderful stories about old actors,” gushes Cruz.

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
