    Surprisingly, I’m not a huge fan of Javier Bardem! I much prefer the skinny Spanish men (and fútboleros like Gerard Piqué or even Xabi Alonso).

    Great quote about the English teacher. I can totally imagine him playing rugby. He’d make a good
    Centre :-)

    I’m a fan of men who look like they could play rugby and I like a man who has more meat on his bones than I do. Javier fits that description nicely.

    Hard to believe it took the Academy until 2000 to nominate a Spanish actor for an award. Nice that it was Bardem.
