Penélope Cruz, a Spanish actress, continues to advocate for shielding her children from social media, emphasizing the potential harm of early exposure to technology.

She is firm about delaying phone usage and social media access until her kids are older, believing it’s crucial for their mental well-being.

Cruz, fiercely protective of her children, refrains from discussing their potential career paths, emphasizing the importance of letting them make their own choices.

“It’s so easy to be manipulated, especially if you have a brain that is still forming,” Cruz said. “And who pays the price? Not us, not our generation, who, maybe at 25, learned how a BlackBerry worked. It’s a cruel experiment on children, on teenagers.”

“I’m very tough with technology, for example, with my kids, we can watch movies sometimes, or some cartoons. How can I not let them watch movies if that has been some incredible moments of [my] happiness since I was a little girl? But not phones until they are much older, and no social media until at least 16. I really see that as protecting mental health. But I seem to be part of a minority,” Cruz said.

“I have a very strange relationship with social media,” she added. “Where I use very little of it in a very careful way. There is something that is not making sense, and it’s especially affecting younger generations. I feel really bad for the ones that are teenagers now. It’s almost [as] if the world was doing some kind of experiment on them. ‘Oh, let’s see what happens if you expose a 12-year-old to that much technology.'”

Despite her deep love for motherhood, she acknowledged the challenges of being typecast in maternal roles in films.

Additionally, she reflected on her long-standing association with portraying maternal characters and her close relationship with director Pedro Almodóvar.

“Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted kids. But I knew I wanted them older. I wanted to wait until I felt I was ready. I was sure it would be the most important thing I would do in my life,” she said.
