Check out highlights from Miss Cruz's interview below and for more, head over to Marie Claire!

How did you make your first dollar?
“It was a peseta, not a dollar. I was 13 and played a ballerina in a commercial. I was a dancer, so they hired me and showed only my feel dancing.”

What splurge is well worth it?
“Maybe not in money, but in calories it would be tortilla española, the Spanish omelet with fried potato and egg. Delicious.”

What is your go-to shower song?
“I’ll sing the same song so many times I burn out on it. It happened last year with ‘Blurred Lines.’”

What is on your kitchen counter?
“Cats. I only have one cat, Capucina, but we keep the window open, and then others come to hang out with her, so we’re always throwing cats out of the kitchen.”

What song instantly puts you in a good mood?
"Everything that Pharrell Williams does. I think he’s a great producer and songwriter.”
