LEARN RESPECT – Penèlope and Javier Bardem have two children, Leonardo, 11, and Luna, 9. How would you react if one day they told you they didn’t recognize themselves in your body? “My children are still small, but I answer you like this: I can’t even imagine not welcoming and not respecting a human being with every cell of my body for how it feels to be, for how it is”.
PEOPLE MAKE THE DIFFERENCE – Cruz also states that on the subject of a child’s acceptance of a choice, “I don’t think there is a gender issue at all. There are men with a very deep sensitivity: Pedro Almodòvar is one of my dearest friends, with my husband Javier I can talk about anything, always, and since they are born we have raised our children in absolute equality. It is the people who make the difference, not their sexual identity ”.
