Born into an acting clan, Javier Bardem built a following in his native Spain in the early ‘90s in films like “Jamon, Jamon,” “Dias,” “Boca A Boca” and “Huevos De Oro.” In 1997, the Spanish stud reteamed with director Pedro Almodovar on “Live Flesh,” which starred his future wife and fellow Almodovar muse Penelope Cruz. Bardem became the first Spanish actor to be nominated for an Oscar in 2001 for “Before Night Falls.” Acclaimed roles in “Collateral,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (again opposite his future wife), “Skyfall” and “Eat Pray Love” followed. He won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 2008 for the killer with cuckoo hair in “No Country for Old Men” and was nominated once again in 2011 for “Biutiful.” Bardem and Cruz, who wed in 2010, have two children together: son, Leo, born in 2011 and daughter, Luna born in 2013.
