Matter of fact, Depp was even present at the inauguration of Cruz’s star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Also, he knows how great of a mother she is to her son, Leo Bardem.
“She’s an inconceivably phenomenal mommy, which I’ve witnessed firsthand, and it’s pretty incredible, also she’s as loyal and true a friend as anyone could ever dream of and I’m very privileged to be able to have her in my life,” say Depp about Cruz.
He won an Oscar for “No Country for Old Men” but he does not care about that. What is important for him is that he won the heart of his soul mate. In an interview with GQ Magazine, the Skyfall star talks about his craft and more importantly, his wife. “I’m happily married. I breathe and stay in peace. I truly thank whoever’s up there for giving me the opportunity to be loved,” says Bardem.
Bardem may be an award-winning actor but he claims that he does not watch his movies. He loves playing this or that character but he does not want to see it played before his eyes. “I can’t even watch that …nose, that…voice, those ridiculous eyes. I can’t handle that.” he shared with GQ.
