Penelope Cruz Covers 'W' Magazine September 2012

Penelope Cruz Covers 'W' Magazine September 2012

Penelope Cruz looks stunning on the cover of W Magazine‘s September 2012 issue.

Here is what the 38-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her first audition: “It was for the woman who became my manager and still works with me. She was testing around 300 actors. I was 14 years old, and she had me read a scene from Casablanca, which is impossible to do when you are that age. But my manager asked me if I wanted to work with her, and she sent me on some castings. When I was 16, I got Jamón, Jamón. Of course, I had to lie about my age. And I had to lie to my parents about the content of the script.”

On the key to being funny: “I don’t play comedy as comedy. That would be the biggest trap. I think about the characters and their situations. Then you don’t have to worry where the laugh is going to be. But comedy is harder than drama.”

Pedro Almodovar on Penelope: “She would like to shoot the paparazzi who try to take [her son Leo's] picture. But seriously, I always knew Penélope would be an amazing mother. She has no fear of love. You can see that in her work.”

FYI: Penelope is wearing a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci stretch wool turtleneck, Yves Saint Laurent gloves, and a Lynn Ban necklace on the cover.

She looks too emancipated. I prefer her sister’s photos with chains.

Glad to see her on this cover & drop-dead beautiful AND talented, not a famewh*re – how refreshing.

But WHAT the hell have they done to her nose and luscious lips there’s some seriously weird airbrushing going on here!! :o

She’s the best!

She is beautiful but why is she so photoshopped? Her nose and lips are… strange
