Spain’s Javier Bardem: I will not go to the US

SPANISH Bond star Javier Bardem has snubbed a move to America, saying it is ‘unpleasant’ to be a celebrity in the US.

The Oscar-winning actor, who starred in Skyfall and No Country for Old Men, said: “I don’t want that kind of stardom where you have the pressure of being a star 24 hours a day.

“Being a celebrity in America is unpleasant. It is too high a price to pay for doing a job. In Europe we have well-known actors, but it’s nothing compared to the American ‘star’ thing, which is absolutely crazy.”

Bardem, who is married to Spain’s most famous actress Penelope Cruz, even finds stardom irritating in his native country, adding: “When fame invaded my life in Spain I couldn’t walk around without some guy telling me stupid things. So I try to avoid the celebrity trap.

“My job is public. I don’t want to be a superstar.”

    Dear Mr. Javier Bardem,

    I am Dr János Donát, I started to collect autographs and signed pictures in 1970. My main purpose is to collect and preserve specimens of handwriting of outstanding people, such as prominent cultural figures of the whole world as well as politicians and as well from scientist to actors and from sportmen to actors and musicians. In my collection there are signatures of the religious leaders, politicians, royalities, scientists, writers, painters, sculptors, architects, directors, actors, sportmen, musicians, etc. I do not collect just signatures, my collection consists of photos with signatures (signed pictures), letters, historical manuscripts, namecards, postcards, etc.

    Nowadays I have more than cc. 30.000 autographs, historical letters, historical documents, papers, etc. with original signatures. The only criteria in my collection is to be original.

    I organised very successfull autograph exhibitions in Hungary. All autographs exhibited were authentic, original and personal. I would be thankful to everybody who helps me in obtaining new autographs.

    Up to now, I have compiled signatures from almost all of these mentioned famous people. However, despite my best efforts, some autographs are still missing from my collection. That is why, I kindly ask you, to send some – exceptionally – original signatures of the yours to complete my special collection.
