Washington, Sept 6 : Spanish actor Javier Bardem has revealed that while preparing for his role in the film 'No Country For Old Men', he imagined in detail his character's life right up to his sexual habits.
Bardem, who had won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar earlier this year for his portrayal of sociopath assassin Anton Chigurh in the Joel and Ethan Coen-directed thriller, recalled that he was so in tune with his character that he was able to visualize the assassin's bedroom behaviour.
"I want to understand everything about that mind. With Chigurh, I saw him as a man with a mission that was beyond his control. Someone chose his fate for him," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"I thought of him as a man who never had sex. He doesn't like human fluids, even his own. I don't want to get into too many details, but I even imagined how Chigurh would masturbate...
"For Chigurh, it was important to think about how he relates to other people, even sexually. So, I think he will masturbate once per month in the dark and with a pillow. Very clean," he added.
