A remarkable film star Javier Bardem was delivered in the Canary Islands. His father Jose used to run a business and his mother Pilar was an actress. The celebrity also has two siblings named Monica and Carlos. After the parents’ divorce, all three kids stayed with mom and she raised them single-handedly.

It would be interesting to know that Javier never really thought of pursuing an acting career. Instead, he was very much interested in painting and considered it as his future profession. In order to be able to pay for an art school, he used to appear on TV from time to time. However, with time he understood that he wasn’t talented enough to go anywhere with his art and that’s why he decided to concentrate on the filmmaking industry.

His work in the movie Las Edades de Lulu of 1990 is considered to be his serious debut on a big screen. After that he appeared in Jamón, Jamón, Huevos de Oro, Perdita Durango and other TV projects. The main breakthrough in his career happened when he moved to the US and starred in No Country for Old Men. Ever since that time, Bardem has been playing only main roles. His most well-known works include: Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Eat, Pray, Love, Skyfall, Loving Pablo! and many others.
