London, Dec 12: Actress Penelope Cruz, who often feels threatened by crazy things, says she has become an expert at hiding her fears.
The 39-year-old has fears which trigger anxiety and agitation, but she has been suffering with phobias for so long she has learnt how to conceal them, reports mirror.co.uk.
"I have so many fears. I have become an expert at hiding them but I am so full of them. I am not giving you examples because they are all so crazy," mirror.co.uk quoted Cruz as saying.
"Everybody thinks I am so centred and relaxed, but it is so opposite to what goes on inside me. But I have been working on it all my life, so it gets better," she said.
The actress also has to deal with the pressures of motherhood,. »

If there was an Academy Award for tragedy appropriation, “Twice Born” would be 2013’s front-runner. The story of two dingbats who inexplicably fall for each other while Sarajevo disintegrates around them, Sergio Castellitto’s film projects a tumultuous love story against the backdrop of the Bosnian War for independence, and then seems unaware that the foreground overshadows it in the worst possible way. Mostly told in flashback, the film stars Penélope Cruz as Gemma, who brings her son Pietro (Pietro Castellitto) to Sarajevo to see photographs taken by his long-deceased father Diego (Emile Hirsch). Despite her hopes that the trip will. »

• Pick your top 10 films of 2013
A sequel to execrable Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups, a documentary about the life of iconic Us author Jd Salinger and the big screen adaptation of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's latest teen-orientated tome have been named among the worst movies of the year by Time magazine.
The magazine's annual list of the top 10 most awful films also features a joint venture by M Night Shyamalan and Will Smith, an action movie starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds and a thriller based on the much-hyped but ultimately poorly-reviewed debut original screenplay from acclaimed author Cormac McCarthy.

Directed by Sergio Castellitto and based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Mazzantini, Twice Born is an epic portrait of love, loyalty and the unbreakable bonds of family. When Italian professor Gemma (Penelope Cruz) heads off on a summer vacation to the battle-scarred city of Sarajevo with her teenaged son Pietro, she intends to show him the country where she fell passionately in love with his father, Diego (Emile Hirsch), but also uncovers a long-hidden secret. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Emile Hirsch talked about what a fantastic experience he had making Twice Born, what it was that attracted him to this opportunity, collaborating with director Sergio Castellitto and author Margaret Mazzantini, and working with co-star Penelope Cruz. He also talked about the wide variety of projects he currently has coming out, why the Bonnie & Clyde remake (premiering on Lifetime, A&E and History on December 8th) appealed to him, »

Emulating Almodóvar: Castellitto Employs Cruz To Pull Heartstrings
The renowned Italian actor turned middling director Sergio Castellitto returns to his place on both sides of the camera with Twice Born, this time playing the homebound husband in his second film to be based on a novel by his wife Margaret Mazzantini featuring his on screen Spanish muse Penélope Cruz as his tragic protagonist. Revisiting many of the same genealogical complications explored in their largely unsuccessful last collaboration, Don’t Move, which featured a grating troupe of unlikeable characters, his latest sees Castellitto rounding up an international cast that pulls hard at the heartstrings, diving deep into melodramatic territory while exploring the depths of maternity and what it means to be unequivocally in love. Thankfully, the film revels in overblown emotion while managing a twisty-turny narrative that plays flashbacks of mixed affection against a homecoming visit to a bygone comrade.

One thing that can be said about actor Emile Hirsch, whose career began at the age of 12, is that as he's grown older, he's been a lot more selective about the roles he plays. Despite appearing in a number of teen comedies, playing a big screen version of Speed Racer and giving a memorable turn in Sean Penn's Into the Wild , Hirsch certainly has been trying to transition into more adult roles while getting away from the double-edged sword of still looking younger than his actual age. Having premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, Twice Born pairs Hirsch with the gorgeous Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz, who in turn reunites with her Don't Move director, Sergio Castellitto, once again adapting a bestselling novel by his wife Margaret Mazzantini.

A romantic drama that, with a helping of non sequitur, mutates into a paternity mystery in the final act, Twice Born revolves around two storylines: In one, young Gemma (Penélope Cruz) and Diego (Emile Hirsch) fall in love in Sarajevo, and have trouble conceiving a child; in the second, Gemma returns to Sarajevo with her son, Pietro (Pietro Castellitto), for the first time since the siege.
Cruz and Hirsch manage to create chemistry at points, working hard against affected dialogue. Yet Twice Born's central plot — Gemma and Diego's attempts to have a child &m »

Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem are both Oscar winners, sure, but the real stars of their family? The couple's 2-year-old son Leo and 4-month-old daughter Luna! In an interview with WSJ Magazine published Monday, Dec. 2, Cruz says she feels "lucky and grateful" to be a mother and calls parenting "the best thing in the world." But the 39-year-old actress isn't the type to publicly gush about her little ones. "That's when the lion comes out," she says jokingly, when asked about her two children. "I try not to talk about them during interviews at all." Photos: Penelope stuns in a series of designer gowns She does, however, tell the interviewer she needs »

As Evan Rachel Wood has found to her dismay, cunnilingus as a form of oral sex still remains taboo in Hollywood – so how can it go mainstream?
• Evan Rachel Wood on Hollywood's cunnilingus censorship
Yesterday, actor Evan Rachel Wood launched a Twitter polemic against the ratings board in the Us, the MPAA, for necessitating the removal of a scene where her character in Charlie Countryman receives oral sex. The edit was presumably made so the film avoids the Nc-17 rating that would effectively bar it from many mainstream cinemas.
It's a microcosmic example of a much wider issue: cunnilingus is de facto arthouse. Even coming from the surprisingly stilted world of intra-male sex chat, it's clear that among my twentysomething peers this is a thoroughly mainstream, necessary part of modern sex – ignoring the fact that most men thoroughly enjoy it. And yet Hollywood, with its lumbering moral turning circle, hasn't come round to the idea. »

The thriller “The Counselor” follows a lawyer (Michael Fassbender) who finds himself in over his head after getting involved in a dangerous drug deal. Novelist Cormac McCarthy wrote the unconventional screenplay; Ridley Scott directed the film. “Ridley was very respectful of Cormac and wanted to make sure that his vision and Cormac’s vision were properly merged,” says producer Nick Wechsler. “It is the first produced screenplay from this very esteemed writer, and we have a grand master as a director, so there were a lot of people who wanted to be in this movie.” Although the film stars Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, and Brad Pitt, casting director Avy Kaufman came on to the project before anyone was attached and started the casting process from scratch. “[It] was not easy, but [it was] fun looking for these ‘character types,’ ” Kaufman says of the very specific, criminally minded types being cast. »
