Penelope Cruz Wants Son Leonardo To Lead An Anonymous Life

And other reasons to love her.

Penelope Cruz continues to knock me out with her flawless red carpet choices for all of the Pirate premieres: LA, Cannes, Russia, London and now Madrid (check out the gallery). And Johnny Depp has praised her as being “an inconceivably phenomenal mommy.”

But, it’s a rarity that an A-List actress keeps her baby on lock down from the paps in a method of protecting them from the madness that is fame. (Yeah, I’m talking to you Holmes).

When Penelope spoke with Vogue magazine this month, she said,

“I want my son – and my kids if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible. The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy.”

Well said. Just keep the baby away from tio Eduardo and (future tia?), Eva Longoria.
