Javier Bardem - Javier Bardem Closes Family Restaurant

Actor Javier Bardem has been forced to close one of his family's restaurants in Madrid, Spain due to the economic downturn in the country.

The Skyfall star, who hails from Spain's Canary Islands, has decided to close his La Bardemcilla eaterie after suffering "two years of prolonged losses".

Bardem revealed the news in a joint statement with his mother and two siblings, who help run the restaurants, explaining, "Like many small businesses, including many small firms in this country that no-one rescues, La Bardemcilla is closing its doors."

Eleven workers will be made redundant, but the family's other restaurant in the city will remain open.

Economic problems in Spain have spiralled over the last few years and the country remains deep in recession amid soaring unemployment figures.
