Taking a break from her busy schedule, Penelope Cruz covered the Winter 2014 issue of The Wall Street Journal Magazine.

While donning designer duds from Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent for the Alasdair McLellan-shot spread, the 39-year-old actress dished about her life as a mother and her future.

Highlights from Miss Cruz's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to The Wall Street Journal Magazine!

On her future:
"Maybe in 10 years I'll direct a feature film. There would have to be enough passion to give a year or two of my life."

On her children:
"[Motherhood] changes everything in your life. It's also going to change the way you approach your work. I always wanted to have children. When you already have your own child in your arms, you understand even more what it must mean to not have the ability."

On her ultimate critic:
"I have no compassion for my own mistakes. Luckily, I also have a good sense of humor, so now I don't beat myself up too much. It's a good balance."
