New York, Aug 20 (IANS) Spanish actress Penelope Cruz hates acting in English films because she has to work extra hard on her accent.Cruz was born in Madrid and did not begin learning English until she was 18. She admits it is still a struggle to perfect her words especially when she is working on a movie, reports Contactmusic.com.
