In an interview, the actress talks about feminism. According to her, despite the fact that the situation in this matter has improved over the years, it is still very far from ideal. "We are very far from equality between men and women. We can pretend it's not so, but I don't want to pretend. Differences can be seen in a thousand things."
And yet, attitudes towards women are changing, for example, they are less likely to be asked provocative questions, as was often the case in the past. “20 years ago, at press conferences, male actors were asked questions about the film, and actresses were asked shocking things. When I think back now on what my colleagues and I were asked, I am still speechless. And such questions were always asked only to us, women. Well, that hardly happens anymore."
Today, however, there is still a problem of ageism towards actresses. "Have you ever met a 50-year-old actor who wondered, 'What am I going to do now?' How to cope with age-related changes?" Me not. Because for him and his work, age is not a problem!
Penelope also talked about why she loves her job. “I love my job because it allows me to explore the mysteries of existence. You can live a thousand lives, but you will never know enough, there will always be something more to understand."
According to the actress, she tries to “leave her images on the set.” At the same time, the acting profession is an important therapy for her. “Acting has helped me a lot mentally and emotionally. I don't use my work as therapy, but I think it's inevitable. The acting profession is a catharsis, and I believe that I am psychologically healthy primarily thanks to my work. This, first of all, teaches me that everything changes and flows continuously. Nothing stands still. Acting is not the only type of therapy I practice, but it is certainly one of the most effective.
