Penelope Cruz – “Who says that to be pretty you have to be thin?”

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Penelope Cruz says you don’t have to be slim to be attractive. The 36-year-old told British You magazine: “I would close down all those teenage magazines that encourage young girls to diet. Who says that to be pretty you have to be thin?”

She added: “Some people look better thin and some don’t, there is almost a standard being created where only thin is acceptable. The influence of those magazines on girls as young as 13 is horrific.”

Penelope herself admits that she is embracing her looks as she ages. ‘The Nine’ star said: “If I look around at the actresses I admire, they are all women who have not fought growing older, but embraced it – women like Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn… It’s a good thing to be old, because that means you haven’t died yet, right?”

She added: “The people who love me, love me for who I am. They love me for a mixture of things that makes anyone love another person, and those things will still be there when I am 40, 60 or 80.”
