Spanish actress and model Penelope Cruz was born in Alcobendas, Madrid, Spain on April 28, 1974. At an early age, Penelope started to learn classical ballet. Soon after, she moved to Hollywood, California to pursue a career in acting wherein she got the chance to work with Hollywood’s A-list actors like Tom Cruise and Matt Damon. Penelope also appeared in several movies including Vicky Christina Barcelona which earned her an Academy Award.
To keep up with her body figure, Penelope shares that she follows a healthy Mediterranean diet which mainly focuses on vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, chicken and fish. “I love Spanish food,” she confides. “My diet is the Mediterranean diet, which is good food. I eat well, but I try to eat healthy.”
When asked about any special workout routines thats he does to maintain her awesome body shape,Penelope reveals: “I love ballet and it’s a little boring for me to go to the gym because I’m used to the dancing discipline,” she said. “It’s really hard but much more fun.”
Another factor that helped her regulate her body well is through breast feading. “I think I’m very lucky that I can breastfeed my children because sometimes even if a woman wants to, she can’t. I breastfed my son for 13 months and I plan to do at least the same with my daughter. That’s an amazing thing for babies, but it’s also really good for the mother because it regulates your body again after pregnancy.” she shares in one of her interviews.
