Penelope Cruz graces Harper’s Bazaar’s May issue, and the Pirates of the Caribbean held nothing back when it came to talking about her idol Meryl Streep and their nude photo shoot together. 

Several years ago, Penelope, 37, posed in her birthday suit for the AIDS’ RED charity alongside Meryl, 62. “As soon as she got to set, I had to sit topless on top of her,” the Spanish actress recalls. Needless to say, Penelope refers to the shoot as “the most interesting love scene I’ve ever done.”

As mentioned, the Iron Lady actress is a mentor of Penelope’s, the Vicky Cristina Barcelona vixen admitting:

“When I first started watching movies and I saw Meryl’s work, that’s when I became obsessed with acting.”

That’s the understatement of the year. Since breaking into acting, Penelope has starred in various films over the years including Blow, Vanilla Sky, and Volver. Perhaps the biggest change in her life came when she and husband Javier Bardem welcomed their son Leo into the world, and her priorities changed.

“Maybe I’ll make one movie a year, maybe two, but it’s not going to be more than that because I have other priorities now.”

Check out the rest of her revealing interview by picking up a copy of Harper’s Bazaar’s May issue — which hits shelves on April 24, and see the actress’ stunning look in a Swarovski-crystal jacket and an Armani Prive diamond necklace.
