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 JustJared.com. “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.”

“Gaza is living through horror these days, besieged and attacked by land, sea and air.

News).

The letter also urged to “lift the blockade, which the Gaza Strip has suffered for more than a decade,” and “open border crossings to facilitate the mobility of the population, the entry of medical equipment, medicines and food.”

Penelope Cruz Covers 'Allure' Magazine January 2014

Penelope Cruz graces the cover of Allure magazine’s January 2014 issue, out on newsstands Tuesday, December 24!

Here’s what the 39-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On breast feeding: “I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive. It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.”

On being best friends with Salma Hayek: “She’s one of my best friends. We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working togther, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy. We slept in the same bed so many times and it was like she was always trying to wake me up and call me huevos.”

On growing up with creative parents: “In my house every Sunday, everybody was cleaning the house. There was always music, and everybody was dancing, sometimes naked around the house. Not hippie, but very free.”
