Penelope Cruz graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s May 2012 issue wearing an Armani Privé crystal jacket. Inside, she discusses Meryl Streep, her character, and dressing for the red carpet.
On her idol, 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.”
On dressing for the red carpet: “All I look for is to be able to breathe!”
On her character: “[I’m a] worrier. I am living for every day and trying to have less fear, less worry. But I have always worried about everything; it’s in my nature. It’s the thing that makes me suffer the most.”
