Javier Bardem may be an extremely talented actor, but he does not like the celebrity part that comes along with it. He does not like talking about his personal life: his wife, Penelope Cruz, or their son.
“There is no good side to celebrity. [Talking about my personal life] brings some other pressure and expectation that maybe a movie doesn’t deserve. It can help in some ways but not in others. There is nothing perfect. I guess these ideas belong to people’s perceptions from the outside. But we’re used to that. There are perceptions from the outside and then there is us. The real us.”
Javier seems to be doing a great job avoiding the trap of believing his own press, but it’s not so easy for him to shake off his acting roles once the film has wrapped.
“I do a job and am lucky enough that to do a job that I love but it is a hard one. I’m not saying it is as hard as working in a coal mine but it is still difficult in a different way. Sometimes you have to go through very strong emotional journeys and then come back to yourself and that can be difficult to control.”
It’s good Javier is married to an actress: Penelope can understand what he’s going through!
