Penelope Cruz wants to join the Celebrity Adoption Circuit
Penelope Cruz wants to have kids of her own – but she also hopes to adopt.
“Of course I want to have kids,” Cruz, 32, tells the Spanish edition of Marie Claire in its April issue. “I want to have my own kids, but also adopt. For a while I’ve had the feeling that my life won’t be complete if I don’t adopt.”
As for a prospective father of any children, Cruz – who split with Matthew McConaughey last year and has recently been linked with Orlando Bloom and Josh Hartnett – says she’s currently single.
“Yes, but that’s all I’m going to say,” she replies when asked. “I know in past interviews I talk about my job, but the article only talks about my [personal] life. I’m not entering into that game.”
Man or no man, the native of Spain says she’s enjoying life in Los Angeles.
“I didn’t like it immediately, but now it’s good. I’ve got a circle of dear friends; I love my house and my little dog Vino.”
Well I suppose it was inevitable before the rest of hollywood would begin to jump on the adoption circus. Let’s just take a brief look at what she said above…
“I want to have my own kids, but also adopt. For a while I’ve had the feeling that my life won’t be complete if I don’t adopt.”
Wow, it’s amazing all the things you can pull out of this particular quote. Of course there is the standard “own kids” wording portraying adoptees as “not your own.” And then what the hell is this “my life won’t be complete if I don’t adopt.” ?!!??!! – Talk about celebrity trend…these are PEOPLE, children, individuals. It’s like all of a sudden adopting has transcended the typical philanthropic and humanitarian motives and has moved directly to the “gotta do it once in your life” situations.
Well Ms. Cruz, on behalf of all other “trendy” transracial adoptees, I hope you complete your life by adding a “worldly” child to your family.
