The Penelope Cruz cover interview in the November issue of Esquire is about Madrid, acting and that Cruz is always hungry. She is a complex person and artist. She said in the interview:
“I’ve played a lot of tricks on myself. I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties. I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist—you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less interested now. For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing—how could I call it? A plan.”
