Penelope Cruz enjoys being housewife

July 1, 2012 - Washington

Penelope Cruz has revealed that being a housewife is the "best thing in the world" and loves staying at home to cook and clean.

The 38-year-old actress, who has been staying at home since giving birth to 17-month-old Leonardo with husband Javier Bardem, enjoys not having a job to go to because it means she can concentrate on her cooking.

"I'm a housewife and it's beautiful, the best thing in the world. I know how to cook and it's important to me to make fresh food every day. I don't do crazy diets, just the good Mediterranean food that I love because it's important to eat well," Contactmusic quoted her as telling HELLO! Magazine.

Cruz also admitted that she's very good with a mop and duster.

"I'm good at cleaning too. I learnt that when I made the film 'Volver'.

"My character was always cleaning the house, so when I started preparing for the role I would go to my mother's house and to my sister's house, and they were like, 'I think she has a fever, because I don't know why else she has come to clean my house today," she added.
