The two actors became friends while working on the film, so when they discovered their birthdays were only one day apart, a joint party seemed in order, according to Variety.
Bardem went all out for his birthday buddy, according to Craig.
â€œI remember you were in drag, but I know thatâ€™s a whole other story,â€ Craig said during a dual interview with Variety.
Bardem immediately added the necessary context.
â€œComing out of a cake,â€ Bardem added. â€œI was supposed to be the â€˜Bond girlâ€™ that night, and oh, my God, I was.â€
Bardem said he sang â€œHappy Birthday to Youâ€ in his â€œbest Marilyn Monroe impersonationâ€ â€• apparently one of the first times he performed musically in public.
Despite his lack of musical experience, Bardem was asked to perform as Desi Arnaz in â€œBeing The Ricardos.â€
â€œWhen [the â€˜Being the Ricardosâ€™ team] told me to sing, I was like, â€˜Are you sure of that? Are you sure you want me singing?â€™ And then I try.â€
