Bardem, Cruz ignorant about Israel, Gaza, says Voight
August 4 , 2014
Jon Voight has said that actors Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz were “obviously ignorant” about the situation in the Middle East.
Voight, himself an actor, wrote in a column in Hollywood Reporter that the husband and wife should “hang your heads in shame”. He also asked them to seek forgiveness from Israelis.
Bardem and Cruz had co-singed a letter slamming Israel’s actions in Gaza.
Bardem later said in a statement that he and his wife “detest anti-Semitism as much as we detest the horrible and painful consequences of war”.
