Penelope Cruz Covers 'Vogue' June 2011

Penelope Cruz Covers 'Vogue' June 2011

Penelope Cruz graces the cover of Vogue magazine’s June 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (May 24).

Here’s what the 37-year-old Spanish actress had to share:

On her love for karaoke: “I’ve gone to karaoke bars in almost every city I have been to. Every time I am on a movie location, we find a karaoke bar and take the crew.”

On motherhood: “From the first second, you feel so much love. It is a revolutionary experience. That’s the best way I can describe it. It transforms you completely, in a second. Nature is very wise and gives you nine months to prepare, but in that moment – when you see that face, you are transformed forever. Even if you have heard from all your friends and family, ‘This is what’s going to happen,’ until it happens to you, it’s hard to understand in your soul.”

On wanting to keep her family’s life private: “I want my son – and my kids if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible. The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.”

    Cover photoshopped at maximum, the woman looks nothing like Penelope.

  • Abi

    Penelope Cruz is so voluptuous now after giving birth to her son recently with her sexy new curves and large breasts.
    I’m a new mother myself and I highly recommend having children. My hips are bigger…my breasts are bigger. I’m loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.

  • mimi

    Good looking woman!!!

  • Paris

    elle resemble a un garson

  • Mlef

    The black and white picture is incredibly wonderful.

    Okay the pictures are photoshopped, but anyway Penelope is not perfect, she knows it and already say it, she have strange lines on her face, but the result is just beautiful…and the word is not enough.

    If I was a man, I would be in love with her…actually I’m having doubts about my sexuality right

  • Mlef

    You try to talk a a french person, but you’re probably not, because we write it that way : “elle ressemble à un garçon”.

    The translation of the sentance is “she looks like a boy”, and actually, she doesn’t.

  • KC

    She is beautiful

  • sarah

    She looks so pretty!

  • nixx

    God what is wrong with those extra photoshopped covers! She doesn´t look like herself

  • Bianca

    Pretty Spanish lady…no PUERTO!

  • amber

    The cover resembles a bit of Minka Kelly….
    That being said Penelope does not look like Minka Kelly.

  • sourpatch575

    Wow the cover photo looks NOTHING LIKE HER
    This is photoshopped to the MAXXX!

  • Madhatter

    Majorly photoshopped, but, if I didn’t know the actress, I would think she was absolutely gorgeous.
    LOVE the freckles- adorable.

  • Johnny

    The woman on the cover does not look like Penelope, not even close to her. You Vogue people should be ashamed of yourselves for photographing this woman beyond recognition. This is an insult to Penelope, is like trying to say she is not beautiful enough to be on your cover unless she is photoshopped to the max.

  • atom

    lol the cover does look like Minka Kelly..looks nothing like Penelope..Penelope is more beautiful than that photoshop product that Vogue created..

  • longchamp

    love the soft, slightly unfocused gaze on the cover

  • SAMI

    what did they do to her? she is barely recognizable. it looks like she had a nose job from these photos? but i think it’s just excessive photoshopping

  • Boo

    They photoshopped the Latina out of her!

  • helena

    Honestly at first I thought they just used photos of her when she was in her 20s but then I noticed the wedding ring and her body after baby…Really looks so photoshopped. She doesn’t look this young anymore.

  • lilia mazunina


  • N

    I think its a beautiful cover.

  • British Latin American

    @Boo: What a stupid statement. She is not a latina, so there is no latina to photoshop out of her. American idiots.

  • krirkri

    the left eye is out of focus
    the graphics department did not do a good job
    and those eyebrows?? not hers!

  • Alicia

    she looks stunning!!

    Frankly, I’m tired of celebs on the covers of fashion magazines. Usually, they’re well timed tie-ins for some upcoming movie. Very boring and not high fashion at all. I long for the days when real models were on the covers. I know I’m not alone in this assessment. For the record, Harper’s Bazaar has separate covers for newsstands and subscribers; believe me, the subscriber covers are much better. Does Vogue do this? I’ve been trying to find out.

    Frankly, I’m tired of seeing celebs on the covers of fashion magazines; they’re usually well timed tie-ins for new movies anyway, which is very boring and not high fashion. I miss the days when real models were on the covers. Harper’s Bazaar has separate covers for the newsstand issues and the subscriber issues; the latter is better by far. Does Vogue do this? I’d subscribe if they did!

  • Interesting…


    I like Australian Vogue for the fact that they seem to be the only fashion magazine still putting models on the covers.
