Actress Penelope Cruz is still haunted by the dark days of her initial Hollywood career.
The 34-year-old actress revealed that she hates to revisit Los Angeles hangout the Sunset Marquis, where she stayed with two stray cat pets while shooting for her first English-language film The Hi-Lo Country.
The Volver star said that she felt miserable and lonely.
"Many times I would pick up the phone and realise there was no one to call because I didn't have any friends," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"The experience means a trip back to the Sunset Marquis to meet friends or directors is never one she enjoys.
"I cannot even look at those rooms now. I have a weird physical reaction. Everything comes back from those years," she added.
