Actress Penelope Cruz has said that she is planning to leave Los Angeles, claiming that it is "movie-obsessed".

According to Spanish newspaper El Paris, the 34-year-old star said that she felt "very alone" while living in Hollywood.

"After a number of years in Los Angeles, I no longer want to live here, It will be better if I share my time between New York and Madrid, where my family is."

Speaking about her Oscar nomination for 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona', Cruz said: "I am eternally indebted to the Academy [and] to Woody Allen who gave me this opportunity."
