Actress Penélope Cruz says being a housewife is the best thing in the world. The 38-year-old “Bandidas” star, who has been staying at home since giving birth to 17-month-old son Leonardo with husband Javier Bardem, said she enjoys not having a job to go to because it means she can concentrate on her cooking, reported Femalefirst.
“I’m a housewife and it’s beautiful, the best thing in the world. I know how to cook and it’s important to me to make fresh food every day. I don’t do crazy diets, just the good Mediterranean food that I love because it’s important to eat well,” she said.
The Hollywood couple has houses in America as well as their native Spain and Cruz also said she is very good with a mop and duster.
“I’m good at cleaning too. I learnt that when I made the film ‘Volver’. My character was always cleaning the house, so when I started preparing for the role I would go to my mother’s house and to my sister’s house, and they were like, ‘I think she has a fever, because I don’t know why else she has come to clean my house today’.”
