Penelope Cruz is Harper’s Bazaar latest cover lady and she talked about her idol Merly Streep along with her stubbornness! When asked what her friends think of her she says, “Stubborn. Even my mother would say that as the first word!” She would describe herself as “persistent. It is my best friend and my worst enemy. And I don’t just mean fighting for something related to work; it could be anything. I have a strong personality, and I say what I think. I think I’ve been better about being a little more flexible.” Tell her she’s a no-bullshit girl and she grins broadly. “That is the best compliment you can give me!” Penelope  also dished on her obsession with idol, Meryl Streep, “When I first started watching movies and I saw Meryl’s work, that’s when I became obsessed with acting,” Penélope says. “Now I kiss her whenever I see her! She must think I’m crazy.” She recalls a magazine shoot they did together a few years ago for the AIDS charity (RED). “As soon as she got to the set, I had to sit topless on top of her. It was the most interesting love scene I’ve ever done.”
