At the time when it was revealed who would be playing Desi and Lucy in the film directed by Aaron Sorkin (ウェストウィング), Bardem and Kidman faced backlash from some who couldn’t envision the two decorated actors as the comedic husband-and-wife duo.

And we were not paying attention to that at all,” the Spanish actor says of the initial casting qualms. “そしてなお, with or without recognition, people that think that way will still think that way. And it’s fine. That’s the way it should be. Everything is welcome.
