Transcript of Antonio Banderas

Antonio Banderas Antonio Banderas, one of Spain's most famous faces who was a soccer player until he broke his foot at age 14, is now an international film star best known as Zorro in the eponymous film franchise.
He was born José Antonio Domínguez Banderas on August 10, 1960, in Málaga, Andalusia, Spain. "I hate that cat ["Puss in Boots" from Shrek 2 (2004)]. Ever since he appeared in my life he's more important than me. Now women always say, 'Oh, I love that cat. He's so cute'. Before, it was, 'I loved you in Zorro'. And sometimes you think is she saying that because she has some other . . . intention? But no. They love the cat, and they hate me".

Personal Quote http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000104/bio In 1981, at the age of 19, he moved to Madrid in pursuit of an acting career. Being a struggling young actor, he also worked as a waiter and took small modeling jobs. At that time he joined the troupe at the National Theatre of Spain, becoming the youngest member of the company. Banderas's stage performances caught the attention of film director Pedro Almodóvar, Because he did not speak English at that time, his dialogue for the film was taught to him phonetically. Antonio Banderas established himself as internationally known Latin heartthrob with charismatic looks, and was chosen as one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world by the People magazine in 1996. He won numerous awards and nominations for his works in film, including three ALMA awards and three Golden Globe nominations, among many other. Since 1996 Banderas has been married to American actress Melanie Griffith and the couple has one daughter. Outside of his acting profession, Banderas has been a passionate soccer fan and a staunch supporter of the Real Madrid Football Club. He shares time between his two residencies, one is in the United States, and one in the South of Spain.
