star Penelope Cruz
gets butterflies in her stomach before she starts a new film -- a similar feeling to the one she has when a new man takes her out. She said: “In terms of the work, it always seems like it’s a first date. I mean, every time I go to the movie set and start a project, I feel the same feeling -- the butterflies in the stomach, not having control over it -- because acting is like that. That’s the beauty of it. You can always keep learning. There’s always more.”
Penelope, who is rumored to be pregnant with her first child, also feels privileged to have had such a successful acting career. The Spanish beauty said: “I’ve been very fortunate to be able to make a living out of acting since I was 17. Very, very fortunate, and I’m aware of it.”
