Penelope Cruz Quits Smoking

Penelope Cruz Quits Smoking

Penelope Cruz has kicked the habit!

“She gave up smoking about five months ago, cold turkey,” an insider close to the actress tells Life & Style. “She just decided one day she wasn’t going to smoke, and just like that, she stopped.”

And it could have been just in time: Penelope was showing a bit of a bump when she and boyfriend Javier Bardem, 40, attended a U2 concert in Paris on July 12.

“She’s definitely looking heavier,” says an eyewitness. “Her boobs are bigger, and her stomach is hanging over her jeans. It could be pregnancy weight.”

    It could be a natural weight gain after stopping smoking. Very common.

    I can see why celebs hate the paps because of the way you harass them for every pound they gain or lose. If they gain and they’re a woman they must be pregnant. If they lose it’s anorexia.

    That’s great for her. But I never knew that she used ti smoke. I know Javier Bardem smokes. Maybe she’ll convince him to stop, too!

    Go Penelope…maybe it was the pics of Patrick Swaze, Farrah Fawcett or Christina Applegate’s double masectomy. I hope it sticks. I lost both my parents and other’s I cared about to cancer and there’s nothing sexy or attractive about it and by then it may be too late…

    Im sorry, but better to be temporarily a little heavier than skinny from chemo! Come on what’s the insane focus on weight?

    She has to be the most beautiful woman in the world, a side from Sophia Loren that is. And good for her for kicking the habit!

    While it’s good that she has quit smoking, I think it’s wonderful if she really is pregnant. She and Javier are hot together :D

    It would be great if her/Javier are expecting, but its probably just smoking weight. (or not smoking weight, rather).

    Good for her if she was able to stop that nasty destructive habit. Super good for her if she is pregnant. Some women just look like they would make great moms and she is definitely one of them. She is so beautiful and the time is right for her to start a family. Best wishes to her and Javier. Hot couple.
