Apparently Penelope Cruz absolutely love breastfeeding so much that she admits she's addicted.

While ordering Peking duck and crispy fish, the Spanish beauty explained to Allure that she needs to get her fair share of calories for new 6-month-old daughter Luna.

"I'm supposed to get extra calories because breast-feeding you burn, like, an extra 500 a day," she said. "I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive. It's hard when the day comes when you have to stop."

Cruz and husband Javier Bardem's son Leonardo will be 3 years old in January, with Luna having been born this past July.

"I always knew I wanted a family because of the way I grew up," the "Vanilla Sky" actress added. "Family has always been the most important thing."

One thing you'll definitely find in the Cruz-Bardem household is dancing.

"In my house … There was always music, and everybody was dancing, sometimes naked, around the house," she said. "Not hippie, but very free."
