List of Penélope Cruz quotes.

I love the Italian culture, it's a beautiful culture. I love the language, the Italian people, their music, their attitudes...I just love it! Sometimes I think I'm an Italian trapped in a Spanish woman's body.


I like roles that people don't recognize me in.


When I start a movie, the first day, I feel like a duck.
