Javier Bardem in Venice: My Responsibility, Focus Is Always Toward My Role

VENICE, Italy – Spanish actor Javier Bardem assured film fans on Tuesday that when he is working his entire focus is directed toward the role he is interpreting, the character he is playing and the film he is a part of, leaving no room for his personal life to interfere.

Bardem was speaking during the presentation of “Mother!” a movie by director Darren Aronofsky at the 74th annual Venice International Film Festival, as he appeared next to co-star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays his wife in the film.

“An artist’s responsibility is with the work,” Bardem said. “My responsibility is always with the work, with the character, with the film, then what I do with my life is something else,” he added.

Bardem said he felt fortunate to be an actor and to be able to form part of a movie alongside fellow performers that he described as extraordinarily talented.

The work, which is an allegory of success, love, inequality, overpopulation and the exploitation of planet Earth, had been received by film-goers with a mixture of boos and applause.

Lawrence said she was grateful there were people prepared to go to movie theaters and view her performances.

She said that without film-goers it would be impossible for her to make a useful contribution to society.

“It’s the only thing I know how to do,” she said. “I love my work and I want to be able to do it.”

She added that the film explored what she called an “insatiable humanity.”

Another of the film’s actresses, Michelle Pfeiffer, said that celebrity and hero worship were also expressions of an intrusive society.

Although fame was not a topic that Aronofsky had started off wanting to explore in the film script, it almost inevitably became a subject in the movie.
