No lies about age: Penelope Cruz

London, July 26 (IANS) Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is happy getting old and says she would never “lie” about her age.
“I never want to lie about my age. 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,” she said.

The actress doesn’t want to give into the pressure in Hollywood of having surgery to stay looking young and is inspired by her grandparents’ attitude to old age, reports

“I was very close to both of my grandmothers growing up - they lived long into old age and they were always beautiful to me. They loved life and it showed in their faces. Of course my face will change as I get older, but that’s OK.

“It’s a good thing to be old, because that means you haven’t died yet right? And when I do get older, I want to have the grace to be proud of it, not to lie about it or try to fight it,” she added.
