Cruz Will Never Lie About Her Age

PENELOPE CRUZ has vowed never to lie about her age - because she isn't ashamed of growing older.
The 36-year-old actress is determined to grow old "gracefully" like movie icons Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, and she's determined not to play the Hollywood game of knocking a few years off her birth date.
She tells Britain's You magazine, "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...
"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.
"The people who love me, love me for who I am. They love me for a mixture of things that makes anyone love another person, and those things will still be there when I am 40, 60 or 80."
