Penelope Cruz finds it tough to speak out of her native language when it comes to acting in movies. And everyone knows speaking out of their native language is tough. Way to speak to obvious, Penelope. From Contact Music:
The Spanish beauty spoke little English when she first began her film career and admits it can sometimes be hard working outside her native language because of the thought processes it involves.
She explained: "There is a part of your brain that has to stop when you're acting. You have to be in the moment and dare to fly. Words can't be on your mind. And yet, when you are working in a foreign language, you have to be thinking about the words every single second. It's difficult, but I'm not complaining. It's just the way it is."
But hasn't she been in more than five movies or so? With minimal lines of course. We wouldn't worry so much about Penelope, we're sure she'll cope well.
