Penelope Cruz finds being called sexy “boring”!

If there’s one actress who doesn’t quite like to have the word “sexy” added before her name, it would be Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz, for she thinks that being labelled is “boring”.

The 32-year old beauty, who is already creating Oscar buzz for a stellar performance in the Pedro Almodovar’s ‘Volver’, revealed that she doesn’t quite pay attention to all those people who are forever calling her “sexy”, for she doesn’t like being typecast.

“I don’t pay attention to people calling me sexy. It makes me nervous when people start using labels. It’s boring,” quoted her, as saying.

“I don’t understand why people tend to typecast you,” she added.

As for all those Oscar rumours, well one person firmly in Cruz’s corner Iis her former beau Matthew McConaughey, who she met while filming action adventure ‘Sahara’.

“She is going to get an Oscar nomination for ‘Volver’, or she should. She is so excited about that film. I really hope she gets the recognition she deserves,” he recently said.

Cruz has already taken home the European Film Award for Best Actress this year, as well as the Best Actress award at the Cannes film festival for her performance in ‘Volver’.

The Cannes award was shared with Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Blanca Portillo, Yohana Cobo, Chus Lampreave.
