Spanish actress Penelope Cruz is keen to have children as soon as possible and is seriously considering adoption to satisfy her broody urges.

The Vanilla Sky beauty's previous attempts to adopt a child were rejected because she was single when she applied in her native Spain in 1995.

She says, "I want lots of children. Every day I think about adopting.

"Ten years ago I tried to adopt, but I was rejected for being to young and unmarried."
