I’m glad she’s with someone who appreciates her and is not just looking to walk around with a pretty girl. Also, he’s Spanish and that probably makes it easier to see each other and visit family and understand their cultural backgrounds.

What else has Javier Bardem been in?

# 4

didn’t he supposedly have a longtime girlfriend?
pene just doesn’t give a **** does she? She just needs to make it into the headlines

# 5

Didn’t he get an oscar for “Mar adentro”? I saw him in Jamon, Jamon! with Pene and some movie where he plays a gay cuban writer. I think they are a cute couple.

# 6

That’s very sexy.

# 7

He is gorgeous!

# 8

I LOVED him in “Mar Adentro”, “Before Night Falls” and “Live Flesh”!!

# 9

There you go! Before night falls! That was the title of the movie! Thanks Krajton! He was great in that!

She looks like she’s in love. I’m happy for her. Headlines? If she wanted to be in headlines, she would have tried to snag another typical Hollywood star.

They look ideal for each other, and so in love and happy … unlike some other couples.

i wanna go to maldives, that place is to die for y’all.

damn he’s hot.

those are some saucy pictures! She’s so pretty… in one photo though it looks like he’s showing her his “johnson” in the water!


Soooo hot. I love them!

He had a girlfriend for 14 years, dumped her to date some actress and now dumped the actress to date Penelope. The celebrity motto seems to be “IF YOU CAN ***** IT UP, WHY NOT?”

I’m dying to go the Maldives someday.

Wow. Another Royal Couple of equal caliber (both Oscar nominated, Spanish super stars), destined to be together like the Jolie-Pitts. A long journey since their “Jamon Jamon”… I read she was psychologically “scarred” after that movie with sex scenes at her young age. They came full-circle and found love. Congrats!

-I am so weary of the “posed” new loves of P. Cruz. She is gay..and will never marry…She is the First Lady of Beards.

I’m happy for them.I would die to go Maldivas one day.Felicidades a los dos!

I hate to be so stupid, but is Maldives an island. I’ve never heard of it before. Thanks.

I love him! @ 10/11/2007 at 10:17 am

He’s gorgeous, and they are well matched. Who knows if it’ll last, but I like them together. Javier is the hotness!

not attractive face at all

Tom cruise left that and now he is married to a 28year old who looks like a 45 year old.

looks like paradise

oh my gosh, it must have been hard to leave that island!! paradise!!

good for them. great couple. I like Bardem, he’s such a good actor.
And also I love Pene, she’s beautiful and seems a nice person.
I hope this would last forever.

eeewww. I just noticed them smoking on the bungalow deck. yuck. Well, maybe it was one of those “I need a cigarette moments”…from all their cuddling, looks like they had a lot of those!

HOT, HOT, HOT!!! Wow, those two are sexy! I agree about her finally getting with a REAL man, he’s damn sexy and handsome. What a bod on him!

It’s really funny tho how they starred in Jamon, Jamon when she was sooo young (15, i believe) and they are now dating. Does anyone know how old Bardem was when they did the movie? If you’ve never seen it, it’s kinda shocking since Penelope was very young, and the sex scenes were v. graphic.

Anyway, HOT couple! I think they might become my fave celebrity couple. They seem real, nothing weird/odd about them like there is with most celeb couples.

Javier Bardem in tight shorts is the probably the best thing ever.

The Maldives are fantastic as are the Seychelles.

Why do people keep calling them Spanish? Spanish is a laanguage. People from Spain are called Spaniards.

It seems she sure gets a around.

Yellow Rose @ 10/11/2007 at 12:08 pm

I think I’m gonna run home and change clothes

she just looks str8 up nasty and pale.

that’s where i went on my honeymoon! and i’m pretty sure it’s the same room.
(like doesn’t work unless you’re a flickr contact.

Ohhh get it girl, LOL. I hope Penelope is happy w/ him. The Maldives look beautiful. I need a vacation

Oh they are so cute together. I am so happy for her. At least they match each other in both looks and talent. What a cute cute couple!

Pene collects guys like shoes!
Tom Cruise, whatshisname McConnaughey, Olivier Martinez, I’m sure there are others I haven’t heard of…….and now Javier Bardem.
Have fun! :lol:

Oh, she also dated Orlando Bloom, I think.

Javier Bardem is super hot and talented. A real man! Gael Garcia Bernal is pretty hot, boyish, cute! Pene is talented and cute, good luck to them!

These two will get married! He’s the one to tame Penelope!

Who knew Javier Bardem had such a hot body?

i saw her at the arts hotel in barcelona on july 3, 2007

#29 After doing some basic math I can you that Javier Bardem was 23 in 1992 when he did “Jamon, Jamon.” He’s getting a lot of Best Supporting Actor buzz for his role as a psychopathic killer in the Cohen Brothers “No Country for Old Men,” I haven’t seen the movie yet (since it’s not out) but I have a strong feeling he’ll get it. For the record Penelope Cruz was 18 in 1992 not 15.

He’s sooooooo atractive…

@ Regina: switch out Javier Bardem w/Daniel Craig in your sentence, and you’re right on!

vinotinto @ 10/11/2007 at 8:58 pm

He was great in Dancer Upstairs” several years ago.

How MANY men has Pene been with??????????? New movie, new love…

Linda Jark @ 10/11/2007 at 9:51 pm

The man is gorgeous but Penelope is full of fat, mainly just up her butts, around her waist(the part of back) She need lipoaspiration urgentely.

No 44.

Actually, 1992 is the year the movie was released, but if was filmed 2-3 yrs before its release. So, if my basic math is correct, she would have been 15-16, depending on when filming began.

Anyway, she was very young for the caliber of sex scenes she filmed with Bardem. I understand Europeans are much more liberal regarding sex, but 15-16 still seems a bit shocking. It’s a good movie, tho!

JJ, do you know which resort they stay?

Please tell us..

Oh! I’ve just found it! That’s BAROS!!


He’s a great, brilliant actor, like Anthony Quinn years and years ago. I love him very much and i like her too. I’m happy for them.

Arienti Lolinichin @ 10/12/2007 at 8:20 am

Peoples they are so cruel what theyr say about penelopes being with the so many men. If she was a men their would be no one there saying things about she with the different partners all times. So what if she likes the different men to sleep with all every times? It is her business and that is my belief

Arienti Lolinichin @ 10/12/2007 at 8:24 am

it must be very difficult for her family to see though. Poor Cruz

remember da truth @ 10/12/2007 at 9:11 am

I totally agree!! She’s never been married and is in her thirties — you do the math. EVERY normal woman in her thirties has had several partners if they have never been married and aren’t just clinging to fading relationships out of desperation.

Think about it! Of COURSE she’s dated several men in 15-18 years of being single!!

It’s just the fact that she’s an international superstar, and so whoever she dates, even for a few dates, is known.

And so what if they came from a movie set? How do you think people get to know other people? From work, from hanging out together for a weeks at a time. What’s so odd about that?

angelic fruitcake @ 10/12/2007 at 11:29 am

I think they r a great couple, I love Javier , he’s very sexy.

You know, I like this couple. I think Penelope may have possibly find her man.

What is it with her? She seems to f**k every one of her leading man.

his legs are better looking that hers :-)

no wonder she broke up with weird Tom Cruise . . . can’t have fun like this with Tom Cruise! She could have turned into a weirdo like Kathie Holmes.

She always goes from bed to bed from movie to movie, he is a good actor but is really ugly and she is with a spanish actor because in Holywood everybody knows she is a *****.

They remind me of Zac and Vanessa. Cute! Zac and Vanessa makes out in hawaii, same here (except in another vacation plce), they ly on the bench thigys together. Except Zac and Vanessa does it more appropriately. These two look like they are about to have sex.

I wanna Go to Maldives. It’s So Beautifull. I LOVE MALDIVES.

Thank you very much for visiting Maldives. We do hope that you will com again. Thanks.

Maldives is a very beautiful country. But if you go there, you are aiding the corrupt dictator Maumoon Abdul Gayoom to remain in power for more than 30 years, by opressing its people.

Hi I have been to Maldives 3 times. I didnt face any problem there. Everytings so nice. Last july I have been to W Retreat & Spa.

She is so sexy…….. For sure she needs some one to hold on to her…..Maldives so romantic………..



penelope dont have a beautiful body ! no hips no ass .. ugly body . her body is not sexy ! this woman is just tits and a ok face ! !

beautiful couple!
I love they because they’re from spain, like me!
they worked in “Jamón, jamón” and they had a affaire.
now, with Woody Allen’s film, they started a love..
I perhaps that they are going to be together a lot of time!ç
he hasn’t recibed the Oscar from the film “Mar Adentro” but theyu opted for it. Pénelope too, but from “Volver”
Definitely, they’re the couple of the year. (from the spanish people and I thing that for the other people too)



Oh that makes me so sad…he is supposed to be my future husband…Now I’m depressed..he looks so good…

WOW!! Iove Javier and anything he does. He’s the man that makes
