Penelope Cruz gets up-close and personal with ALLURE.
In this issue, the actress speaks on her addiction to breastfeeding and her loving friendship with fellow actress, Salma Hayek.
On Salma Hayek:
“She’s one of my best friends. We call each other heuvos [eggs]. It was because when were working together, 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 her breast-feeding plan:
“I’m supposed to get extra calories because breast-feeding you burn, like, an extra 500 a day. 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 her childhood:
“I always knew I wanted a family because of the way I grew up. Family has always been the most important thing. In my house every Sunday, everyone was cleaning the house. There was always music, and everyone was dancing, sometimes naked, around the house. Not hippie, but very free.”
On her lingerie line:
“I did the whole [model] casting myself. Some of the girls are 20. Some of the girls are 50. I made sure that we had a couple of plus-size models. It’s like celebration of all types of beauty.”
Reprint from April 2013 issue.
Jennifer Aniston covers the Feb. 2011 issue of Allure magazine. ‘Rachel Green’ became a household name in the 9-s due to a bob haircut that took the world by storm. Actress Jennifer Aniston spoke with Allure about the infamous do and her discontent with the style as a whole.
Chris McMillan concocted the infamous style in 1994 but the actress thought it was horrible, said Aniston in the February issue of Allure.
“I love Chris but he’s the bane of my existence because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look,” she remembered. “How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I’ve ever seen.”
Aniston didn’t think there was anything wrong with her hair at that point until her manager sent her to McMillan. McMillan has stayed a close friend and hairstylist of Aniston over the years.
“I’m actually comfortable in goofdom,” she said. “Not taking myself seriously is one of my favorite things to do, because I don’t. Ever.”
The actress also told Allure that she had more skills than just acting — or posing with her always up-to-date hair.
Aniston enjoys bringing various people with different personalities together.
“I’m a good mixologist in terms of personality types,” she told the magazine. “I love bringing the right chemistry of people into the room.”
She even throws a tree-trimming party every year where attendees have to bring an ornament. The only thing that can ruin it: “A really drunk person,” she said. “Trust me.”
