Portrait of a Lady Killer: our man in Hollywood

(..)In Spain, they often are judgmental about their actors finding success in America. After you won the Oscar, how were you treated back home?

The Spanish are tough. They criticize my work and say I sold out. You want to say, ‘‘Stop it — you’re a bunch of stupid people.’’ But you are never going to be liked by everybody. After the Oscars, I came back to Madrid, where I live. I wanted to get back to the real world. After something like the awards, you’ve changed a little bit, but everyone around you has changed tremendously. You have to bring them back — you have to show that you are the same stupid, limited guy and not this kind of golden boy.


(..)"Los españoles son duros. Critican mi trabajo y dicen que me he vendido. En esos momentos a uno le gustaría decirles: 'Parad. Sois un montón de estúpidos'. Pero está claro que no le puedes gustar a todo el mundo".

Y no rectifiques, mamón.
