He adds: "I remember I was sitting at this table at this thing, and I was talking to this girl. I was like, 'God, I am so boring right now.' But she was like, 'That's so interesting!' I was like, 'You know what? Five years ago, this would not have been interesting.' "

It's not even three months since she gave birth to her daughter, Luna, so Penélope Cruz knows all about the difficult balancing act that working moms struggle with.

“I’ve always been a very family person, since I was a little girl, that’s the way I was raised,” Cruz, 36, said during Saturday's London press conference for her new movie The Counselor. “So that will always be a priority. But I have to work, like everyone else, so I will find a way to balance.”

The mom of two – who debuted her post-baby slim-down in a figure-hugging Temperly London gown earlier this week – wore a red-hot Nina Ricci suit as she promoted her new film, which also stars Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Michael Fassbender.
