Penelope Cruz lands the May 2012 cover of Harper’s Bazaar.
Not only does she look like a million bucks wearing a Swarvoski-crystal jacket on the cover but her full spread shot by Terry Richardson is simply stunning.
In the issue, the To Rome with Love actress opens up about slowing down her career now that she’s a mother, her love for Meryl Streep, being the face of Lancôme’s Trésor and much more.
On shooting her first film after having Leonardo: “I love being around Woody. Watching him direct, and sometimes he falls asleep while they are lighting the next shot. I take pictures of him because he picks the strangest positions. I always think he is going to fall off his chair. That whole shoot I laughed so hard.”
On slowing her career down now that she’s a mom: “Maybe I’ll make one movie a year, maybe two, but it’s not going to be more than that because I have other priorities now.”
On being the face of Lancôme’s Trésor: “It was actually my first perfume. It’s a real history. Real memories that are related to this scent. It’s funny, after over 20 years…. You arrive in this Lancôme world, and everything is full of white flowers, and everything smells good. You feel like you are walking on clouds, and then… you go home.”
On her love for Meryl Streep: “When I first started watching movies and I saw Meryl’s work, that’s when I became obsessed with acting. Now I kiss her whenever I see her! She must think I’m crazy.”
