  • Penelope Cruz can't imagine being nominated to an Oscar once again

    Alicia G. Arribas.Madrid, Oct 3 (EFE) .- Penelope Cruz, with a three-time Oscar nomination, and the only Hispanic winner of a Volpi Cup, the highest recognition of the Venice Festival, laughs just thinking that her work in "Parallel Mothers could turn her again into an Oscar candidate:" If I saw myself like that I would be crazy. "FOOTAGE AND SOUNDBITES OF PENELOPE CRUZTRANSLATION"The times that it has happened have been a surprise and a very great joy the three times that it has happened - that I still cannot believe it and I do not expect it to happen to me again -, but if it ever happens again I will live it like the the first time, but you don't have to wait for anything ", the actress confesses in an interview with Efe on the occasion of the film's premiere next Friday in Spanish theaters."The good thing about this profession is that you don't get to a place where you already say 'everything is done, I already know everything I had to know'"."All the actors of 80 and eighty-something that I know will tell you the same thing: they continue with the same passion towards work, wanting to continue exploring, to continue doing, to continue learning. That - she affirms, convinced - is what we gives this job, that you face a new character every time. And you are like the student, always starting from scratch. ""Pedro gives me such interesting, difficult and nuanced characters, and he guides me and accompanies me in the creation process.With Janis, she says, "we had a lot of preparation time, we were rehearsing for more than 4 months. That is very lucky, because he always gives us a lot of time.""Many times they tell me if I can be a better mother now than before having children - she has two, Luna and Leo, with her partner Javier Bardem - and I don't know, because there are always nuances - she answers - because Milena is not and you don't need to live it to understand the character. "De Janis says that "the honesty of this woman" is important to her but she emphasizes that the character is in a very difficult situation: "She has been fighting all her life to give that grandfather a dignified burial because she is an orphan, this grandmother raised her to the one that she feels she owes everything to, but never had a normal family. ""And she wants a large family, to be the mother she never had and the moment she can create her own family comes the threat that she will be left without that again; that is why she fights like a lioness against the world" "She is a character with a big heart, and with passion, and he knows that not speaking is going to leave the character of Ana in a very unfair situation". "I will never lie about my age - she assures -; my parents, my grandmothers have raised me differently, but when a friend does not want to say the years, that respect, it makes me a little angry, because I think we have to celebrate every year that passes, that we are here, that we have health and work and I have always lived it that way. And there is much to do and learn.
