Actor Javier Bardem believes that the war in Ukraine “has come to stay” and hopes that “NATO does not get involved” in the armed conflict because, in his opinion, that would lead to “something really worrying for all mankind.”
“We are all quite shocked and worried, We don’t know what all this is going to lead to,” Bardem said on Monday, before participating in the Union of Actors and Actresses awards gala held at the Circo Price in Madrid.
The actor also stressed that in wars “they always pay the same: civilians and normal people.” “The dead are put by them,” he lamented.
In this sense, Bardem insisted that he does not believe that the war will end soon and that it seems “creepy” that these conflicts are happening in the 21st century: “I hope I’m wrong, but It all has a pretty dramatic overtone.”
The actor stated that “Celebrating awards becomes quite difficult” but “life goes on”, after vindicating cinema as a “tool of communication and hope important.” “I’m not talking about refugees having a hard time watching movies. But when we have been confined, people watched movies because they wanted to escape,” he added.
Bardem won the award from the Union of Actors and Actresses for best leading actor in the cinema category The good pattern.
