Penelope, who married Javier in 2010, recently spoke about her family life and approach to motherhood in an interview with Marie Claire Greece.
The actress said that she and her husband are careful not to let their careers seep into their family life.
‘Like any couple, we talk about our jobs, and consequently about our characters, about the way we handle this or that scene,’ she clarified.
‘Sometimes we exchange ideas, but when it comes to our jobs generally, we’re not obsessed with work, we try to leave it at the door of the house.’

Penelope also revealed that motherhood made her less worried about other people’s opinions, confessing: ‘When I was young, the way others saw me, be it positive or negative, had an enormous importance.’
She continued: ‘But becoming a mother made me aware that this was the most important mission of my life and that I wanted to accomplish it as best I could.’
As she has grown older she has also adopted a different attitude to her work life, allowing herself more time to recharge.
‘In my 20s, I was a total workaholic, I would even wake myself up in the middle of the night to respond to emails and things like that, and then I had to learn patience, rest, silence. The things that I appreciate a lot now,’ she explained.
