The actress said she internalized her character’s pain as the story portrayed her as Janis, a glamorous photographer who becomes pregnant after a brief fling with a married academic.

She recalled, “I told her, ‘Don’t worry’ — but I was worried. I acted like I had things under control, but I was scared.”

“It’s a big part of what we do to be able to transform ourselves into something that doesn’t talk like you, doesn’t move like you. The fear is part of the appeal: I need that to function. I don’t want to feel too safe.”

According to Deadline, it received a nine-minute standing ovation when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival. The actress wins Best Actress at the Academy Awards.

Cruz also spoke about how she immerses herself so deeply into her characters when acting that she can sometimes take on the emotions or stress of those she portrays.

Reminiscing about the last month of filming Asghar Farhadi’s drama Everybody Knows in 2018, she revealed she had a fever every night.

“I know it was the tension of this character,” she said.

The official competition is expected to be released across Spain on February 25th.
