Let me just get this out of the way: I don’t care about Penelope Cruz. I’m not saying that she’s a bad person, and I’m not saying that she’s not mind-numbingly pretty, I’m just saying that in this world of Biebers and Lohans and Pattinsons, I simply don’t have enough room in my heart for every single celebrity.
That being said, Penelope just did the June issue of Vogue, and in addition to her lovely photo shoot, she also managed to say something that might get her a pass to my heart:
When Cruz first moved to Los Angeles, she spoke little English and lived in a tiny hotel room she shared only with cats. Cats, plural. “I was very lonely,” she says. “I would find cats in the street and take them with me. I raised a lot of cats in that period.”
Oh, Penelope. You were a cat lady? I love that, I sincerely do. Can’t you just see her hoarding cats in some rundown hotel, nursing poor little strays back to health and confiding all her thoughts, hopes, and dreams to them?
Welcome to my Good List, Penny!
