INTERVIEW: Actor Javier Bardem becomes ‘Biutiful’

Javier Bardem acting

For over two decades Spain’s hottest male export, Oscar-winner Javier Bardem, has used his imposing figure, roguish good looks, and bracing machismo to play a slew of varied roles that showcase his penchant for taking risks. The three he’s likely best known for - Cuban poet and novelist Reinaldo Arenas in Julian Schnabel’s “Before Night Falls;” a man who endured a 30-year campaign to fight for his right to die in Alejandro Amenabar’s “The Sea Inside;” and one of the most terrifying serial killers ever committed to screen in Joel and Ethan Coen’s “No Country for Old Men” - no doubt took a great deal of skill to pull off.

But as he revealed to indieWIRE in New York, his most challenging projects to date were no match for what director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu had in store for Bardem when he approached him to head his existential scorcher of a drama, “Biutiful.”
