Penelope Cruz has said she is sick and tired of being asked questions about ageing. The 43-year-old star said she no longer entertains questions on the topic because she believes journalists tend to take it too far, reported Interview magazine.

“Journalists have been asking me, since I was, like, 22, ‘Are you afraid of ageing?’ That is such a crazy question for a 22-year-old girl or, for that matter, for a 42-year-old. I combat that craziness by refusing to answer the question. When it comes to talking about ageing as an actress, I feel like, ‘What the f**k? I’m not going to give you even two minutes to honour your question. It doesn’t deserve that’,” Cruz told Gwyneth Paltrow.

The Oscar-winning actor said her views on the topic took a turn after the birth of her daughter, Luna (now four). “Something changed when I gave birth to my daughter. I started thinking, ‘Come on, it’s 2017. Why do women still have to be talking about this? It’s crazy.’ That sense only got bigger when I had children,” she said. Cruz also has a six-year-old son, Leo with actor husband Javier Bardem.
