Penélope Cruz talks perm idol

The Spanish actress is known for her long brunette tresses, but they haven't always looked as sleek as they do these days. When she was growing up Penélope became obsessed with a song and the promo which went with it.

"I've cut my hair really short for movies. When I was 13 I did a really curly perm because I wanted to be like the woman in Michael Jackson's The Way You Make Me Feel video. I was obsessed with that girl," she laughed to Porter magazine.

The actress isn't too protective of her hair, although she was glad she didn't have to shave it for her new movie Ma ma. She plays a cancer patient and is bald in some scenes, but the clever use of wigs and CGI meant she didn't need to reach for the razor.

Penélope is proud to still be winning big movie roles, although she's less impressed with the industry's obsession with female ageing.

"I've been working since I was 14 and I've been asked that question about how I feel about ageing since I was 25," she fumed. "But because I've never based my career on [looking young], I've never answered it, and I never will answer it, because it feeds that monster of making less of women by labelling them and putting limitations on them. I don't want to contribute to that."

There are some good bits about the actress' job though. She enjoys getting dressed up for premieres and red carpet outings, although the star realises that is all make-believe.


"I've never liked to wear a lot of make-up. When I started going to premieres, I was playing a role. I have all of these wonderful gowns, but it is like playing Cinderella. I don't look like that when I wake up in the morning!" she giggled.
