Penelope Cruz Without Makeup — Bare-Faced For ‘ELLE’ Magazine

Penelope Cruz can add yet another accomplishment to her wall! She was celebrated in ELLE’s annual “Women in Hollywood” issue, on the November 2013 cover.

Focusing solely on her genuine beauty — Penelope bared only her flawless face, showcasing her beautiful brown freckles. Her hair was slick and undone, and she wore a black top.

Penelope is on one of four collectors covers — other cover stars are Reese Witherspoon, Melissa McCarthy, and rising star Shailene Woodley.

Penelope Shares Her Experiences As Leading Female In Hollywood

Penelope revealed in the interview about having control over her career and the things she does.

Penelope reflected about her Hollywood experiences:

The concept of a “star” will always sound foreign and surreal to me because growing up in my country, you’re an actor, not a star.

She also shared the best piece of advice she’s ever received about her career:

How important it is to learn to say no. You’re going to have to put a lot of your time into a project, and you have to know if it’s something you really feel connected with, because it’s not a job you can like you press a button — no.
