The No Country for Old Men star has won a handful of prestigious awards and much critical acclaim throughout his career, but the 43 year old doesn’t know what all the fuss is about as he doesn’t watch his performances.
Bardem admits he cringes at the sight of his nose, which was never properly fixed after he was punched by a bar patron when he was 20.
He tells GQ magazine, “The fact that I like to make characters doesn’t mean that I like to watch my characters being made, my performance. I can’t even watch that f**king nose, that f**king voice, those ridiculous eyes. I can’t handle that.
“But when I’m doing it, I don’t see my nose or hear my voice; it’s like there’s something stronger, bigger than that. And I need to express it.”
