Penelope Cruz wants to set the record straight.

Normally, she doesn’t send out press releases but this time she felt she had to.

An Italian newspaper published a story in which they quote her saying that she is going to produce movies in Spain to help boost the economy – but she actually isn’t going to and never said that.

She did talk about the financial situation in Spain and how much she would like for films to be made there so people can work on them, but that was it.

Penelope says the crisis in Spain is a far too serious topic for her words to be misinterpreted so that is why she did speak out about this to clarify.
