Penelope Cruz loves being a mum
Penelope Cruz says her current film role as a single mum is one of the most beautiful characters she has ever played.
The actress, a new mother herself, made a cameo appearance in Rome on the eve of the Rome Film Festival.
She had been in Bosnia recently filming Sergio Castellitto's Venuto al Mondo, about a single woman who brings her teenage son to Sarajevo, where the boy's father died during the 1990s Bosnian conflict.
She told reporters being a mother is the strongest experience a woman can have.
Penelope, stunning in a somber black suit at the festival, and husband actor Javier Bardem became parents to a baby boy in January.
