With her latest collaborations in Woody Allen and Pedro Almodovar projects, ‘To Rome With Love’ and ‘Im so excited’; and his remarkable performance as the villain in the latest James Bond movie, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have become the “Royal Spanish Couple”.
This couple of talented and successful actors are expecting their second baby, according to the Spanish news. Currently they have a son together, Leo Encinas Bardem who was born in 2011; 4 years after they began dating. Cruz and Bardem reunite thanks to Woody Allen in the set of his Oscar Winning Film ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’. I apply the term “reunite” because this wasn’t the first movie they did together.
They participate in the movies: ‘Jamon, Jamon’, ‘Carne Tremula’ and ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’. These three films heavily charged with sexual thematic so it was obvious they were destined to be together. Besides sharing a baby, a marriage, they both have won Academy Awards for Outstanding Performances in a Supporting Role. Penelope Cruz received hers in 2008 for ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ meanwhile Javier Bardem received his in 2007 for ‘No Country for Old Men’.
It is announced that penelope Cruz will portrait “Macarena Granada” in the upcoming movie ‘Reina de España’. It will premiere in 2014.
