Penelope Cruz Boogied Her Baby Weight Away — With Ballet!

Fri, May 13, 2011 5:08pm EST by Add first Comment

The Oscar winner dropped the pounds after giving birth to baby Leo in January by slipping on her ballet shoes and hitting the dance floor.

Penelope Cruz was desperate to get her curves back after becoming a mom, but the idea of spending hours in the gym was a BIG turn-off. How did you lose the babyweight, HollyMoms?

“I love ballet and it’s a little boring for me to go to the gym because I’m used to the dancing discipline,” Penelope, 37, tells the Daily Mirror, “It’s really hard but much more fun.”

The Spanish star also credits her healthy Mediterranean diet, adding, “I love Spanish food. My diet is the Mediterranean diet, which is good food. I eat well, but I try to eat healthy.”

There’s even room for a little junk food treat — she LOVES burger chain In-N-Out: “I do it, like, once a week or once every two weeks. It’s my little treat for myself. I love the Double-Double with fries.”

Whatever she did – it clearly worked! Penelope looks fab just weeks after giving birth to her first baby with husband Javier Bardem.

Would you try the dancing diet?
