Spanish actor Javier Bardem, who plays the villain in latest Bond film Skyfall, has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 43-year-old, who is married to fellow Spanish star Penelope Cruz, received the honour Thursday where he admitted he was so embarrassed to be honoured with the prestigious accolade, reports

According to, Javier's acceptance speech was full of humour and he even poked fun at his broken nose, which he reportedly received in a bar fight several years ago. He said: "Javier Bardem Day. That's so cool. And what's that like? Does everyone have to walk with a broken nose around Hollywood Boulevard?"

Javier follows in the footsteps of his wife, who received her Hollywood star in April 2011. She was, however, not present at her husband's ceremony.
