Cruz Hits Back At Career Criticism

Newly-single actress Penelope Cruz has rubbished reports her ambition to be an A-list star killed her romance with Tom Cruise.

The Vanilla Sky beauty, 29, has been at the centre of a media frenzy since she and her Minority Report beau announced they'd split in January (04).

And after her ex-boyfriend TOMAS OBERMAIER told reporters she'd sacrificed their relationship to pursue her career, many insiders speculated Cruise was also a casualty of her obsessive ambition.

But Cruz insists there is no truth to the reports - because she has always kept her personal life separate from her job.

She says, "I never felt like I had to sacrifice something else because of having this job. It's obvious this is a crazy life that we have and it's impossible to be with someone who's jealous.

"I'm not making any sacrifices - I'm doing exactly what I want to be doing. I'm not ready to be at home with a baby. I hope I will be some day - but not now."
