Penelope Cruz & Javier Bardem Touch Down

Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem and their 1-year-old son Leo were seen arriving at the Bourget airport near Paris, France on Tuesday. The actress wore a long brown jacket with a matching sweater with jeans and grey boots while holding her son’s hand.  The tot was also dressed warmly in a jacket with brown pants and shoes.

The family is in town to promote Bardem’s new Bond film, Skyfall. In the film that hits theatres November 8th, the actor plays Daniel Craig’s on-screen nemesis.

Bardem told in a recent interview that his character in the movie is not your typical James Bond enemy.

“It was a fine line between playing him camp and [playing him] menacing. I mean, the camp aspect [of the character] was important but it wasn’t the only thing,” he told Heat.

“It’s one note but it’s not the whole melody. I think the character is really ‘open’ to many things. He is not attached to any label, let’s say!”

Cruz is expected to walk the red carpet with her husband for the Paris Premiere of the movie on Wednesday.

Penelope Cruz Jets Leo Out Of LA

Penelope Cruz Jets Leo Out Of LA 0618Couple Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem boarded a private plane with son Leo out of Los Angeles yesterday. Penelope was in LA to promote her new Woody Allen film, To Rome With Love. While answering questions, she said the harassment by paparazzi makes her want to quit acting at times – especially when it comes to her son. “I don’t care if they take my picture, but when they take photos of my family or write about my family, especially when we’re talking about little children…I can’t tolerate that,” Cruz said. “There’s no protection here. They can publish children’s faces and I’m against that 100 percent. Magazines have whole pages showing only children. I don’t really care if they take my photo, but that’s something else and shouldn’t be allowed.”

Do you think U.S. magazines should blur celebrity children’s faces like they do in Europe?

Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem’s Little Boy Turns One

Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem's Little Boy Turns One

There were plenty of celebrations for Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem over the weekend. Their little boy - Leo Bardem – turned one. I can’t believe it’s been a year since they welcomed their son into the world.

With parents like Penelope and Javier it’s no wonder the toddler is so adorable. He was born on January 22nd last year in Los Angeles. Mom and Dad managed to keep his name a secret until a family friend let it slip when Leo was a few weeks old. We haven’t seen much of the Bardem baby – he’s been kept out of the spotlight for much of his first 12 months. That’s the way the couple like it – Penelope not wanting to have his picture splashed across the tabloids every pother week ‘I want my son – and my kids if I have more – to grow up in a way that is as anonymous as possible. The fact that his father and I have chosen to do the work that we do doesn’t give anybody the right to invade our privacy’.

His Oscar winning Mom has also made no secret of the fact his arrival turned her world upside down for the better ‘Being a mother changes you immediately. It’s hard to explain because it’s so deep. But it’s the most beautiful feeling I have ever had‘.It also put her career in a new perspective ‘Working as hard as I did is not for me any more. I was exhausted and had nothing to give. You have to live your life to be able to tell other stories. I’m happy I made that decision‘.
