L’immensità, directed by Italian director Emanuele Crialese, sees the actress’ character end up in a mental institution, and at a press conference on Sunday, Penelope opened up about the realities of domestic violence.

“I don’t think my character is crazy at all,” Cruz said, per Variety,

“She is trapped in her family. Trapped in his house, in his body. In the situation in which she finds herself living. She has no plan B. There is no escape,” she added.

“She’s not crazy at all. She is oppressed in different ways. And she just can’t take it anymore.

“There are a lot of women in the world stuck at home, pretending in front of their children. They try to pretend that things aren’t so bad. They do this to survive.

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