Video: Penelope Cruz Persuaded Javier Bardem To Play Drug Lord Pablo Escobar
Don't part with your loved ones - this principle is professed by Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, who do not want to be separated either in life or on the screen. The couple managed to work together in the film "To Love Pablo": Javier played the famous drug lord Pablo Escobar, and Penelope, in the best ancient traditions of her name, the journalist Virginia Vallejo, who was hopelessly in love with him.
Javier had long dreamed of playing an odious mafia, but did not believe in himself: “For many years I dreamed of this role. Somewhere since 1998, I tried on the image of Escobar. But every time I was offered to play him in a movie, I flatly refused, because I did not want to follow the stereotypes."
The support of his wife helped Bardem believe in himself, and she agreed to shoot. Penelope also had a hard time: the actress never met her prototype, but studied over 800 hours of various interviews with Vallejo. Cruz empathizes with his heroine: “I can't judge or justify her. I guess Virginia didn't quite understand what she was getting herself into."
The drama will premiere at the Venice Film Festival, which means that soon we will see the couple on the red carpet.
