Quotes:

“Being a mother changes you immediately. It’s hard to explain because it’s so deep. But it’s the most beautiful feeling I have ever had.” – Penélope Cruz on motherhood

“Working as hard as I did is not for me any more. I was exhausted and had nothing to give. You have to live your life to be able to tell other stories. I’m happy I made that decision.” – Penélope Cruz on her changing priorities since the arrival of baby Leo

“I want my son – and my kids if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible. The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.” – Penélope Cruz on protecting her family’s privacy
