Actress Penelope Cruz is not a big fan of driving owing to a scary experience from the past.
In a February cover story for ELLE, the actress spilled the reason behind her fear.
“My sister was run over by a car in front of me when I was eight or nine,” she said, adding, "It’s a great trauma, because I saw her losing consciousness. And I was numb in the hospital, telling people, ‘Oh, my sister just got run over by a car.”
“If the incident happened in my adult life I would have been hysterical.”
The Ferrari actress continued, "She has a certain hypersensitivity in every way, visually, to sound, to people’s feelings, which she is lucky to have in a sense.”
“It’s been one of the main things I deal with in therapy: how to work a balance so I can keep feeling those things without making those feelings my own.”
Regardless of her role as co-owner of Ferrari, Cruz is not so keen to go behind the wheel.
