He hails from a family of actors in Spain and Javier Bardem, who decided to carry forward the legacy by taking up the same profession, says he looks at acting as an opportunity. “In my country, my mom is an actress, she is 78 and she was an actress since she was six.

I try to make the best out of it. In Spain, there is 92 per cent of unemployment as actors,” Bardem told PTI. They have two children: a son and a daughter.
