Personal Quote:

I like to take a year off between films. Some actors need to work for the money, but money is not a priority for me. I don't have the need for a lot of cars or houses. Since I am a tomato in the market, I have a price. They have to pay the price, but money is not my biggest priority. See more »

Trivia:

Has been in a relationship with Penélope Cruz since they began working together on Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008). See more »

Trademark:

Deep gruff voice
