Penelope Cruz’s Post-Baby Body Secret

She may have given birth to her first child in January, but Penelope Cruz has been wowing the crowds at the Cannes Film Festival with her incredible body. So what’s her post-baby body secret?

Eat well, dance – and sleep!

The actress admitted that she even indulged on her way to the Cannes premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean 4 yesterday. “I ate a burger and then went on the red carpet. I do it, like, once a week. It’s my little treat.”

And what makes up the rest of her diet? “I love Spanish food,” she says. “My diet’s Mediterranean. I eat well but try to eat healthily.”

The 37 year-old also revealed that dancing has helped her get back into shape.

“I love ballet and dancing. It’s a little boring for me to go to the gym because I’m used to dancing. It’s really hard but much more fun,” she says.

Her best-kept secret to maintaining a killer bod? “Sleep is the best way to happiness and beauty,” she claims. “My record is 18 hours!”

The Spanish actress wore a stunning white lace Givenchy gown to the premiere alongside co-star Johnny Depp. Now that is one hot on-screen couple!
