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:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
