Javier Bardem may be too shy to kiss his girlfriend Penélope Cruz in front of paparazzi these days, but the Oscar-winning actor wasn't always so coy with his public. Contactmusic.com reveals that the star was so hard up for money as a struggling actor, that he resorted to stripping for some extra cash.

Penelope Cruz knows when to keep her mouth open (when she's in the middle of a three-way kiss between Scarlett Johanssen and Javier Bardem) and when to keep it shut (when nosy journalists repeatedly ask about said kiss).
"Really, Scarlett and I have run out of lines to say about that," the star told Newsweek. "We're calling Woody [Allen] to give us some material. People love that subject. The only thing which is honest, the set was very crowded that day. But I don't have anything else to tell you about it."

Penelope Cruz may be on top of her game these days (red-hot career, gorgeous boyfriend, looks that could kill), but she wasn't always living the life of an A-lister.

Javier Bardem is all man. So what if he gets touchy-feely with his buddies once in a while? Means nothing. He's still a beer-swilling, football-watching, Penélope Cruz-dating guy's guy, right? So, we're sure Javi doesn't mind in the least that this video of him at a bar in Spain, forehead-kissing and whispering in the ear of a man whose hand never leaves his thigh, is making its way around the internet. Also, looks like Javier, ahem, shaved his beard for a night out with his close friend.

The couple, who have been discreetly dating since last year, are being encouraged to walk down the aisle by Javier's mother, Pilar.

We love us some Coen Brothers, but after their last three movies—"Intolerable
Cruelty, "The Ladykillers" and "The Man Who Wasn't There,"—even we were starting
to wonder when the idiosyncratic directors would return to form. Brutal,
truthful and unrelenting for its full running time, "No Country for Old
Men," is that return to form, in a big way.

Hollywood's biggest night has come and gone, and while we think it was sort
of a dull show, the highlight was definitely Javier Bardem's win for Best
Supporting Actor and his touching acceptance speech. Javi and his boys, the
Coen Brothers, were the big winners of the night—their film No Country
for Old Men also took home the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted

One of the least Latin directors in history, Woody Allen, has caught onto just how hot we are: He's shooting his new movie in Barcelona with Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz—and the movie will be bilingual! MTV reveals the film will put the two Spanish actors in a love triangle with either Scarlett Johansson or Rebecca Hall.
