Penelope Cruz On Being A Working Mum: Family ‘Will Always Be A Priority’

Penelope Cruz gave birth to her daughter Luna just three months ago, but the Hollywood star is already back on the red carpet promoting her latest movie The Counselor, and now she’s said that she has to “find a way to balance” her work and family life.

The Oscar-winning actress, who has two children with husband Javier Bardem, was talking at the movie’s press conference in London on Saturday, when she was asked about the difficulty with the balancing act that working mothers face.

The 36-year-old reportedly said: “I’ve always been a very family person, since I was a little girl, that’s the way I was raised. So that will always be a priority. But I have to work, like everyone else, so I will find a way to balance.”

Penelope debuted her slim-down body in a Temperly London gown last week for the movie’s premiere.

Her husband, Javier Bardem, is also in the movie with Penelope but the couple don’t share any scenes together, “unfortunately” Bardem said.

Of her post-baby weight loss, Penelope insisted that there wasn’t a fad diet, or daily workout that has helped her shed the excess pounds.

Because the actress said she has her children – son Leo and daughter Luna – to thank for getting her figure back.

When asked how she does it, she told E! News: “Just running after them, running after the kids, I think.”
