Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz took in the sights of their hometown, Madrid, on Saturday afternoon. Penélope and Javier took a walk through a park and afterward stopped for a drink. It's an exciting time for Javier, Penélope, and their family — her sister Monica Cruz announced her pregnancy. Monica wrote a blog for the newspaper El Pais about her decision to have a child through artificial insemination.
Both Penélope and Javier have skipped out on award season so far despite Javier's Skyfall being nominated for — and ultimately winning — best action film at last week's Critics' Choice Awards. Javier was also recognized with an individual acting nod at the Golden Globes but opted out of attending. We'll see if Javier decides to attend next month's BAFTAs, which are slightly closer to Spain in London. The film is up for eight BAFTAs, including individual honors for both Javier and his costar Judi Dench.
