April 03, 2008 06:58:20 GMT


Winning an Academy Award apparently didn't help the acclaimed "No Country for Old Men" actor Javier Bardem in keeping his film role in "Tetro". According to Hollywood Reporter, the 39-year-old Spanish actor has to give up his role to a fellow Spaniard actress Carmen Maura in the Francis Ford Coppola's latest feature film project.

The actor who is rumored to be having a romantic relationship with actress Penelope Cruz apparently has to give up his character to the "Volver" actress because Coppola has done "a sex change operation" to the character. "One of the important roles in the script is a mentor and teacher to Tetro (Vincent Gallo), and I originally wrote it for a man," explained Coppola about the changes done. "As I read and reread (the script), I felt that the interaction between the two characters would be far more intriguing if they were of the opposite sex."
