The Spanish Actor, Oscar winner, Oscar nominee and new father Javier Bardem had doubts when he begun his working life, and dabbled in a number of odd jobs, including stripping.

Bardem explains: “I did it as a joke, for some friends at first. But a guy in the bar we were in spotted me and hired me for the next day…”

“…I was so bad, I did it to ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’, and I had my mother and sister to cheer me on.”

Javier,  don’t get us wrong, we think you’re “Biutiful” and all, but Adult Entertainment is definitely “No Country for Old Men”.
