If there is one thing that you’ll never see Penelope Cruz wear, that would be fur. That is because of her commitment with PETA. She may wear big names in the design world in the red carpet, she may wear casual clothes on set and in real life but she would rather die than wear something as hideous as that of an animal fur.

Helping people in the third world may be the trend in Hollywood these days but skeptics about the act of kindness by celebrity agree in the effect that these famous people make on the lives of those in need.
Take the case of Penelope Cruz’s charity work at the Pacific Lodge Boy’s Home. This place is where gang members go to for rehabilitation. Penelope discovered this place as Matthew MacConaughey as they used to go out years ago.
Other than that, Penelope has also had experience in working with Mother Teresa. “To spend a week with Mother Teresa? I was more excited to do that than to get the greatest movie. When you are there, you feel more useful than at any time in your life.”, she shares.
The stunningly beautiful Penelope
Penelope Cruz may have been a bit late in terms of getting into the world of motherhood, but it does not mean that she is not good at it.
As a matter of fact, slowly but surely may be the adage that she is living by as she and her husband seem to take turns in taking care of their son Leo when the need to work arises.
In cases where the both of them are free, they are seen in places where the child is sure to enjoy. Take this latest photo of the Cruz-Bardem family as they are seen at a park in Rome spending quality time with their son.

Penelope Cruz at the Twice Born Premiere Night
Penelope Cruz once said that she is going to shoot any paparazzi who takes a picture of her son, Leo. Considering the fact that she is a new mother, it is obvious that Penelope Cruz is going to be a good mom to her son. In her roles and in her works, she shows so much passion and love that it oozes and flows abundantly. What better way to channel this extra serving love than by being a mom to her son.
In her latest movie, Twice Born. She plays the role of a mother to a teenage son. Penelope speaks fondly of her role, ”Some of these babies were only a week old. And so they were smelling me and that made them want to eat. But I was playing a woman who couldn’t feed because she hadn’t given birth! That created a very strange but alive dynamic between me and those babies. You cannot learn something like that. And this film is full of moments that could not be planned.”.
One of the best things about Penelope Cruz’s beauty is her eternal ability to transform from one look to another. Take her appearance in the 2012 Oscars where she is seen sporting a retro hairstyle that matches her warm complexion as the nude shades of Lancome make up styled in 20′s glamour suit her well.
