Penelope Cruz could be considering more family-friendly films, now that she is a mother.

The Oscar-winning Spanish actress says her role in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has made her think about her future.

"I haven't done a lot of movies in my career that are for the entire family, and this one is. That makes me very happy, to know that children and teenagers are going to enjoy it - it's beautiful," she said.

Penelope, who gave birth to son Leonardo in January, isn't sure if she would slow down career-wise.

"Big things like that will change you in a very deep, positive way. We will see. In terms of work, I don't know how that will be affected," she continued.

"I was a workaholic I used to work three or four movies every year but that changed a while ago so now I do one, maybe two if they're very short. It's very important to me to have that equilibrium, to have that balance because I was always tired before."

The 37-year-old actress said her Pirates co-stars like Johnny Depp, Ian McShane and director Rob Marshall were hugely supportive of her pregnancy on set.

"They knew from the beginning. Their reaction couldn't have been better and I will never forget it in my life because it was a very special time for me and to be working and to feel so protected and taken care of by all of them every step of the way."

:: Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is in cinemas now.
