Associated Press Wednesday, July 14, 2010 (New York)
It’s a match made in Oscar heaven: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have gotten married.
Cruz’s representative Amanda Silverman confirmed the couple were married in the beginning of July at a friend’s house in the Bahamas.
She said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Tuesday the ceremony for the 36-year-old Cruz and the 41-year-old Bardem was a small one that only family members attended.
Cruz’s wedding dress was designed by a longtime friend, fashion designer John Galliano.
Cruz and Bardem are from Spain. They appeared together in the 2008 Woody Allen romantic comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Cruz won a supporting-actress Oscar for her role.
Cruz and Bardem have been friends for nearly 20 years after working together on the Spanish film Jamon Jamon, when the actress was just 19.
Bardem won a supporting-actor Oscar for the 2007 crime thriller No Country for Old Men.
Bardem recently finished filming Eat, Love, Pray with Julia Roberts, while Cruz is working on Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment of the popular Disney franchise. (With PTI inputs)
