Though Oscar-winner Javier Bardem and his lady-love Penélope Cruz are rarely seen out together in public, when they get behind closed doors, the two apparently have no problem showing how serious their relationship is becoming.

The latest evidence comes from a report in today’s NY Post, which claims that the Spanish actress, who previously dated Hollywood hunk Tom Cruise, threw a party to celebrate Javier’s recent victory at the Academy Awards at West Hollywood hotspot Villa. And not only was Javier’s mother present — his entire family had flown in from Spain for the event!

"He took Penelope for a spin on the dance floor in front of all his family," the item quotes a witness as saying. "It’s getting pretty serious."
