L’immensità, directed by Italian director Emanuele Crialese, sees the actress’ character end up in a psychiatric institution, and during a press conference on Sunday Penelope spoke out in the realities of domestic violence.

‘I don’t think my character is crazy at all,’ Cruz said, according to Variety,

‘She is trapped in her family. Trapped in her home, in her body. In the situation in which she finds herself living. She doesn’t have a plan B. There is no escape,’ she added.

‘She’s not crazy at all. She’s oppressed in many different ways. And she simply can’t take it anymore.

‘There are many women around the world trapped in their homes, who pretend in front of their children. They try to pretend that things aren’t that bad. They do this to survive.’

Penélope is a mother-of-two herself, sharing son Leonardo, 11; and daughter Luna, nearly 9, with her husband of nearly 12 years, Oscar winner Javier Bardem.
