Spanish actress Penélope Cruz and her hubby and fellow actor Javier Bardem, 43, were spotted leaving Los Angeles, Calif. with their adorable 1-year-old son Leo via a private jet on Sunday (June 17).
The 38-year-old star recently spoke about her thoughts on the price of fame – which is one of the subjects dealt with in the new Woody Allen film To Rome With Love in which Penélope plays a leading role – and claims it has not brought her “true happiness” and objects to the way children’s privacy in the United States goes unprotected.
“I agree with Woody that some of the advantages of fame are very unjust and disgusting, but some its disadvantages are pretty tough to fight against, to the point that people sometimes ask me if I want to continue in this profession,” she says. “I don’t care if they take my picture, but when they take photos of my family or write about my family, especially when we’re talking about little children…I can’t tolerate that.”
“There’s no protection here,” she adds. “They can publish children’s faces and I’m against that 100 percent. Magazines have whole pages showing only children. I don’t really care if they take my photo, but that’s something else and shouldn’t be allowed.”
What are your thoughts on Penélope’s opinion?
