Penelope Cruz Clarifies Statements Made About Israel: 'I'm Not an Expert'

Penelope Cruz has clarified her statements on Israel after using the word “genocide” to describe her views in a statement provided to Just Jared.

“I don’t want to be misunderstood on this important subject. I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it,” the 40-year-old actress said in a statement to “My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza. I am hopeful all parties can agree to a cease fire and there are no more innocent victims on either side of the border. I wish for unity, and peace… I believe in a civilization that can be capable of bringing the courage to have a world where humans can live side by side.”
