Interview Magazine: October 2017 – Penelope Cruz

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story‘s Penelope Cruz is featured in the October 2017 issue of Interview Magazine.

In the issue:

In 2009, Penélope Cruz became the first Spanish actress to win an Academy Award—a sky-high career peak if ever there was one. Since her film debut in 1992, she made the transatlantic journey from art-house muse to major Hollywood force, mesmerizing audiences with her volcanic on-screen range. Of late, Cruz has gone a bit under the radar, taking time to raise a family with her husband (and frequent co-star), Javier Bardem. But this fall brings another wave of transformation her way. She will be seen next month in Murder on the Orient Express, Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel. And then early next year she will embody the inimitable Donatella Versace in what might be the most anticipated TV event of 2018: Ryan Murphy’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

On acting: “But when I did my first movie, when I was around 17, I just fell in love with acting. That’s when I stopped dancing.”

On being a working mom: “We infrequently take holidays, because the kids are young and because of our jobs. I try to travel no more than we have to. I’ve only been away from my kids for a day and a half in almost seven years. I’ve had to do that three times, and I’m hoping it can stay that way. When I’m not working, I’m taking time to be a mother.”

On playing Donatella Versace in American Crime Story: ” I know her a little bit, and I really like her. I had a few questions about how he was going to handle her portrayal, but he’s so classy, and he’s very respectful to people. This is a delicate story, because I’m playing someone who is alive, someone who lost her brother in a horrible way, and someone who still misses him very much 20 years later. I was not used to the rhythm of doing television.”

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres in early 2018 on FX.

In the issue:

Here, a few highlights from her October cover interview, on newsstands now:

On supporting other women in the industry: “How can we get ahead if we’re feuding and hating on each other all the time? I made a pact years ago that I would never hate on another female, ever, especially in this industry.”

On the legacy she wants to leave: “I love black people. I love telling stories. I want these little girls to study me like I studied Meryl and Bette Davis and Carol Burnett. I want them to study my work, because I put a lot of work in, a lot of blood, sweat, and tears.”

On dating: “I would love to [be in a relationship], but he has to see how I move and deal with it, because I don’t have time to explain. I’ve got work to do.”

On doing her own laundry: “That keeps me normal. That keeps me feeling like, Yeah, I’m not too Hollywood.”

Empire airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
