Profile Bio Text
José Antonio Domínguez Banderas (born August 10, 1960), better known as Antonio Banderas, is a Spanish film actor, film director, film producer and singer. He began his acting career at age 19 with a series of films by director Pedro Almodóvar and then appeared in high-profile Hollywood films including Assassins, Evita, Interview with the Vampire, Philadelphia, Desperado, The Mask of Zorro, Spy Kids and the Shrek sequels.
Banderas divorced his first wife, Ana G. Leza, and in May 1996 married Melanie Griffith, whom he met a year earlier when they shot Two Much. They have a daughter, Stella Banderas, born in 1996, who appeared in the film Crazy in Alabama (1999), in which Griffith starred and which Banderas directed. He has invested his movie earnings in Andalusian products, which he promotes in Spain and the USA. He owns 50% of a winery in Northern Spain called Anta Banderas which makes red and rose wines. In 1996, Banderas appeared among other figures of Spanish culture in a video supporting the PSOE lists in the general election. While he speaks in his native Spanish with an Andalusian accent with his family and the Spanish press, he switches to a Castilian accent when playing non-Andalusian roles or when dubbing his Hollywood roles. He is a long time supporter of the Málaga CF. He is also an officer of a religious brotherhood in Málaga and travels in the Holy Week to take part in the processions.
