JAVIER BARDEM has attributed his acting success to his different haircuts.

The Spanish actor, who is married to actress Penelope Cruz, said his hairstyles really help him to get into character.

The 44-year-old added the way his locks look adds to the portrayal of a screen personality.

Bardem, whose roles have included baddie Raoul Silva in Bond film Skyfall, told Total Film: “As an actor, I’m always attracted to people I can relate to, and people who have very specific things to say about themselves, whether flaws or virtues. The hair is part of that.”
