Cannes golden couple Bardem and Cruz return to open festival

It was where Javier Bardem memorably declared his love for Penelope Cruz in 2010 now the golden couple of Spanish cinema will open this year’s Cannes film festival together on Tuesday.

The Oscar-winning actors both star in Iranian master Asghar Farhadi’s Spanish psychological thriller “Everybody Knows”, which will kick off the festival and is up for the top Palme d’Or prize.

The fiercely private couple’s glowing return to the spotlight in Cannes comes after Bardem emotionally proclaimed his feelings for Cruz there eight years ago as he accepted the best actor award for “Biutiful”.

“I share this joy with my friend, my companion, my love, Penelope. I owe you a lot and I love you so much,” he said as Cruz blew kisses to him from her seat and her eyes welled with tears.

Cruz has also won at Cannes, sharing the 2006 best actress prize with five other women for their work in acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar’s drama “Volver”.
