Javier Bardem Plays Host For Julian Schnabel and His New Movie Miral
Javier Bardem had a night out in LA yesterday hosting a screening of the Weinstein Company's upcoming release Miral. The film's director, Julian Schnabel, who also lensed The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, was there to smile and pose with his daughter Stella, along with Javier and the producers Jon Kilik and Yasmine Elmasri. It was a reunion for Javier and Julian, after they worked together on 2000's Before Night Falls. Julian's real-live love, Rula Jebreal, also attended in a white dress. The project is based on Rula's novel about a Palestinian woman involved in the Israeli-Palestine conflict of the same name, and over the course of shooting the pair apparently became an item. The movie's star Freida Pinto wasn't on hand to celebrate at this particular bash, but she traveled the world extensively last Summer with promotional stops at festivals in Toronto and London.
