SPANISH actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have retracted statements about the on-going Gaza conflict.
The pair signed an open letter – sent on behalf of the whole Spanish film industry – pinning the blame for violence in the Gaza strip on Israel.
“I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it,” said Cruz, 40, in a statement claiming the Pirates of the Caribbean actress’s only intention was to show her desire for peace in the area.
Bardem, 45, too defended himself and his wife against accusations of anti-Semitism, coming most notably from American actor Jon Voight, father of Angelina Jolie.
He clarified that he detests the military decisions of the Israeli government rather than its people, who he has ‘great respect’ for.
