His amazing talent as an actor did not come by chance as he had great actors and filmmakers in his family lineage. This includes famous actors such as Rafael Bardem (grandfather), Matilde Muñoz Sampedro, and Juan Antonio Bardem. When he was six years old, he got his first shot at acting as part of the cast of the film El Picaro.

Another interesting trivia about Javier Bardem is that he was actually part of the junior Spanish National Team for rugby. In spite of his propensity for playing rugby, he decided to pursue acting, and by 2000, he would gain the praises of Hollywood stars such as Al Pacino and John Malkovich, particularly for his performance in the film Before Night Falls. He has been dubbed by many people in Hollywood as the next would-be Al Pacino or Robert De Niro because of his compelling acting. Javier himself is a huge fan of Al Pacino and has said in the past he finds him very physically attractive and would give anything for a chance to act alongside him.
