When Penelope Cruz was asked about the pressure to always look beautiful the Spanish actress said:
“That stuff only happens on the red carpet. My job is really not about those things. My job is about the four or five months I spend on the set. There, I don’t have to worry about how I look, only about how my character needs to look. If she’s ugly, I need to be ugly. I she’s old, I need to look old.”
