Are Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem engaged?

The National Enquirer is set to report that Javier Bardem, 39, proposed to Penelope Cruz after she won his mom Pilar’s approval. Bardem’s mom, who accompanied him to the Oscars and was seen with Penelope afterwards, is said to have urged her son to ask the Spanish beauty, who turns 34 this month, to marry him. These two are rumored to be having a wedding later this year.

Sources told the National Enquirer that he popped the question after mum Pilar urged him to take the relationship to the next level.

A friend said: “Pilar took her son aside and told him, ‘What’s the matter with you? She’s perfect! You love her, she loves you. Get married.’”

The couple began dating last summer after hooking up on the set of Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona in Spain.

The wedding is rumoured to be taking place later this year.


I love these two together and I hope this news is true. They don’t need to get married or to make it official, but weddings are really romantic to me despite the coin toss odds of the relationship lasting.

Bardem and Cruz will appear together in a film version of the Broadway musical Nine. Judi Dench and Nicole Kidman are said to be in talks to join the cast. It starts filming in September, which is a few months after Kidman is due to have her baby.

    wow… selma has such amazing boobies.

    Penelope is so cute! I love her dress in that pic and i agree they’re a great couple.

    Javier, Javier, Javier…sigh. Definitely approve of this. All that Spanish hotness. Since I can’t have him (only because he’s never met me, obviously), and they look so damn good together, I am totally ok about this.
    (And he can still be one of my fantasy lovers so, business as usual).

    Javier is much too hot for one woman.

    Penelope Cruz looks really pretty in this photo.

    I would have to say waiting for the right guy worked out for Penelope. Look at her track record,,,Tom (we are the ONLY ones who can help) Cruise,,, Matt (love me, love my stench) Mcaunehy (terrible spelling but I dont care right now). She has landed a man,,,compared to these other two twits who are just boys. Congrats to Penny. Javier is the real deal.

    I hope they get married! How old is Penelope? And I agree AC, first thing I thought when I saw this photo was ‘Wow Selma has such great boobs!’

    I know it’s a minor thing but girl’s name is Salma.

    And am I the only having trouble with the comments? Some will be there, some won’t. I have to refresh to get new ones and if I refresh after that, it goes back to the old ones. hmmmmm

  8. iheartlasagne says:

    Yeah, comments are often wonky, I’ve noticed. Anyway, love them together and hope this is true. Seems a bit sudden, but who knows?

  9. headache says:

    iheart, I get the feeling they have been together for a long time but on the DL.

  10. geronimo says:

    You’re not alone, been a bit off for the last hour or so. Haloscan refresh thing malfunctioning.

    She might want to wait and see how this whole Oscar fame thing pans out first, before committing. He’s hot now, but he could be stuck making sucky kids’ movies like Jodie Foster if he’s not careful.

  12. Enonymous says:

    I do not think Jodie Foster is stuck making kids movies, she has done many serious/good movies recently too and she is still considered a serious actress, so that is not a fair thing to say.

  13. Sasha says:


    I guess you haven’t seen the adverts for Nim’s Island yet, have you ?

  14. h says:

    Jodie Foster appeared in some small productions, such as Amelie, the famous French movie.

    She is not all about Hollywood productions. If you follow her career carefully, you will realize she has done various projects. A very decent actress.

    hot guy…hot couple. I wish them the best. Spain must be proud

    Penelope is the penultimate Spanish beauty. I love Latin women in general but her allure is overwhelming. As a big Americano, however, I found the Spanish people to be as attractive as can be but about as short as well. No problema, I’ll just bend over. !Que belleza mujere! Love the lisp.
