"The good thing about being an actor, and the gift of being an actor, is that you are beautifully forced to see the world with different eyes."

Javier Ángel Encinas Bardem (born 1 March 1969 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canary Islands) is a Spanish actor.

Although a famous and respected actor in his native country since the early '90s, he gained international recognition and fame for his 2004 portrayal of a quadriplegic man who wants to end his own life in The Sea Inside and his 2007 Oscar-winning portrayal of psychopathic and silent assassin Anton Chigurh in the Coen Brothers film No Country for Old Men (the latter is by now considered iconic).

He comes from an extended movie family; his uncle Juan Antonio Bardem was an acclaimed film director. He's been married to Penélope Cruz since 2010; they have a son and a daughter.
