Javier Bardem covers the October issue of Esquire magazine, and Penelope Cruz's hubby looks sizzling in these shots, doesn't he?

The interview was done before it was announced that the Oscar-winning actor is expecting his first child with Cruz, so Bardem chats mostly about his craft and how initially he didn't want the role in No Country For Old Men. Of course, Penelope was present at one point during the chat, and the writer (rather astutely) notes, "His heart must stop a thousand times a day." And hers too -- Javier is hot hot hot!
