Penelope Cruz: Social Media Is ‘Frightening’

Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz thinks social media is “frightening”.

Whilst the ‘Zoolander 2’ star has her own Instagram account, she has never subscribed to Twitter or Facebook as she finds it all “unnatural”.

She told El Periodico newspaper: “Internet has changed the world including professions like mine. I’m the sort of person who misses writing cards instead of sending texts. I’ll always be like that. I hold out the hope it changes one day and the two worlds can co-exist.

“I’ve resisted social media sites a lot. I haven’t got a Twitter account or Facebook. I’m on Instagram but I use it for specific things. It’s a bit frightening really. I’m not going to photograph the fried eggs I eat in the morning. It seems unnatural to me, like posting photos of my family.”

Meanwhile, the 41-year-old actress – who enjoys a successful career in front of the camera – previously revealed she is keen to have a go at directing.

She shared: “I want to build what could be my future in cinema, not always being in front of the camera. I’d also like to direct a feature, maybe 10 years from now. For now, I’m directing commercial and video-clips – I love that. And it’s the best way to learn. I want to go slowly, step by step. I’m following the whole production process very closely, from the film’s inception.”
