Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz celebrate decade of marriage

Spanish superstars Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz have been married for 10 years. The actors recently flew to the Algarve in Portugal to celebrate this milestone achievement.

Bardem and Cruz are a notoriously private couple. They met in 1992 on the set of Jamón Jamón, but didn’t begin dating until 2007 when they reunited on the set of Vicky Christina Barcelona.

They managed to keep their relationship under wraps for years, making their first red carpet appearance together in 2010. In this same year, the pair secretely tied the knot in an intimate, family-only wedding in the Bahamas.

Over the course of their relationship, they have starred together in many films.

Both Bardem and Cruz agree that keeping their relationship out of the public eye is the healthiest for their marriage. “Penélope and I, we have to protect the ‘us,’” Javier told Vulture Magazine.

The couple have two children together: nine-year-old Leo Encinas Cruz and seven-year-old Luna Encinas Cruz.
