Eduardo, were you into music growing up in Spain?
EDUARDO: Since I was 13, when I started to compose. I learned to play keyboard and guitar and taught myself bass and drums.
PENELOPE: I've seen it since he was a little boy around the house with a guitar.
EDUARDO: When I was a kid, in our house there was always music.
PENELOPE: From opera to flamenco. I took Eduardo to his first Marilyn Manson concert when he was 14.
EDUARDO: We met him.
PENELOPE: He's actually a very nice guy.
We hear the Cruz family is all about karaoke.
EDUARDO: I hate karaoke! If there's a party, they say, "Eduardo, come and sing!" and I'm like, "I just left the studio where I sang!"
PENELOPE: I am a karaoke queen! I have a machine in my house. There is something very tacky about it, but it's fun. Once I sang the Gwen Stefani and Eve song "Rich Girl," trying to do both of them at the same time.
Can Penélope carry a tune?
EDUARDO: Yeah. Her tone is very good for singing.
PENELOPE: He never told me that before! First time I heard it.
Can Eduardo act?
PENELOPE: This one's a clown. With me it's the worst because he's the only one who tells me all my defects. According to him, I have a lazy eye, a huge ear and my feet are completely deformed because of dancing. I laugh because I know how much he loves me.
EDUARDO: She's my best friend.
Are you protective of Penélope when it comes to guys?
EDUARDO: If I didn't like the guy, I would let her know. It would be clear—he wouldn't enter the house.
PENELOPE: I like that he's protective of me.
So, Eduardo, would you ever set Penélope up on a date?
PENELOPE: He lets me decide those things.
