In a recent interview with German magazine “Brigitte”, Javier Bardem said that the so many unflattering do’s we’ve seen of him through the years, are just a part of being an actor.
Bardem added that he doesn’t feel like he’s attractive. “But… I look like a monkey!” he said soon after earning the Best Actor Goya award for his role in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Biutiful.”
“When I first read the script, I realized it was a life journey,” Bardem reminisces about his initial thoughts on Biutiful. “What he [González Iñárritu] was proposing to me was not a role. It was like, forget about doing things or showing your skills. This is something else. This is about jumping in the abyss.”
Bardem’s leap of faith certainly paid off. Earlier this year Bardem was the Best Actor Cannes Film Festival laureate for a performance that many critics are regarding as a career best for the Spanish actor.
We wish Bardem the best of luck at the 2011 Academy Award Ceremony!
