Penelope Cruz: ‘I Don't Know If I Believe In Marriage'

Penelope Cruz may be happily in love with fellow Spanish actor Javier Bardem, but tying the knot, it seems, is never on the actress' mind.

"I don't know if I believe in marriage," she told Britain's Psychologies magazine in a new interview. "I believe in family, love and children."

While she hopes to have children one day, the 35-year-old actress said she isn't thinking of having them just yet.

"I want to have babies one day but not right now," she said. "When I do it I want to do it really well. I want it to be my best project in life."

In addition to her film career, it seems Penelope already has her hands full, mothering those around her.

"I have a tendency to become a mother to everyone around me. My brother and sister are always complaining that I'm too protective," she revealed. "I talk to them both every day, no matter where I am."

But while Penelope is happy to talk in general terms about her life, specific details about her relationships are off limits.

"It's always a trap to share your secrets," she said. "I did that when I first got attention as a teenager, acting in Spain. I would get so upset because I'd talk about a movie for two hours and then all I'd read was something personal that I'd talked about."
