Javier Bardem is smoking hot in dramatic black and white on the October cover of Esquire magazine. With the recent announcement that he and Penelope Cruz are expecting a baby after their early Summer wedding it seems Javier Bardem is having one of the most exciting years of his life. Inside the issue, the Spanish actor shares insight about his upcoming project, Biutiful, including what drew him to it and what he looks for when picking projects. Javier chose not to talk in-depth about his work with Julia Roberts and their Summer hit, Eat Pray Love, instead gushing over the small independent film that's already earning him Oscar buzz saying, "I think it is a very powerful movie, I would like you to see it. I hope it makes you cry."
