Penelope Cruz's Girl Crush on Meryl Streep

Penelope Cruz graces the May cover of Harper's Bazaar, on newsstands April 24, opening up about motherhood, her career... and her idol, Meryl Streep.

Cruz told the mag, "When I first started watching movies and I saw Meryl's work, that's when I became obsessed with acting. Now I kiss her whenever I see her! She must think I'm crazy."

The Oscar-winning actress recalled a magazine shoot she did with Streep a few years ago for the AIDS charity (RED). "As soon as she got to the set, I had to sit topless on top of her. It was the most interesting love scene I've ever done."

On juggling motherhood and career (she has a 1-year-old son with husband Javier Bardem), Penelope said, "Maybe I'll make one movie a year, maybe two, but it's not going to be more than that because I have other priorities now."
