Penelope Cruz: I'm a cheap date

Penelope Cruz

Penélope Cruz has joked she is a "cheap date".

The actress believes she has mellowed as she has got older.

The 38-year-old star has left her wild child days behind her and as a result doesn't have the tolerance for alcohol that she once did.

"About ten years ago I had a wild, confused phase - I just wanted to get lost in life and not think about the consequences," Penélope revealed to German magazine In. "After two beers now I'm already tipsy. I guess, I'm what men would call a cheap date!"

The sultry brunette beauty finds it hard to take some things seriously.

Penélope finds it ridiculous when she reads an article describing her as a sex symbol.

The actress joked that if she doesn't make fun of herself, someone in her family will.

"I always have to laugh when someone writes about me that I'm a sex symbol!" Penélope laughed.

"I love to laugh about myself, if my brother isn't already doing it! He always makes fun of me. He just loves it."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
