Actress Penelope Cruz is preparing for a move to New York after growing fed up with "movie-obsessed" Los Angeles. The Vanilla Sky star feels "very alone" in Hollywood and now plans to divide her time between the Big Apple and her birthplace of Madrid, Spain, where her family resides.
She says, "After a number of years in Los Angeles, I no longer want to live here. It will be better if I share my time between New York and Madrid, where my family is."
And she has named her Vicky Cristina Barcelona director Woody Allen as one of her favourite New Yorkers: "He says what he thinks, unlike many people that I have met in Los Angeles."
