Antonio Banderas is my most favorite actor (joint first with Matt Damon). Banderas is charming, persuasive, exciting & sexy. Yes, as far as I'm concerned, he oozes sex appeal more than any other actors I've come across. I may be biased though as I often think Spanish are arresting & Latin songs are romantic.
He has starred in some high profile movies like The Mambo Kings, Assasins, Evita (as Che alongside Madonna), Interview with the Vampire, Philadelphia, Desperado, Frida (both alongside Salma Hayek), The Mask of Zorro, The Legend of Zorro (both alongside Catherine Zeta Jones) & the Spy Kids Trilogy. As far as I can recollect, his co-stars are some of the sexiest in Hollywood! Lucky him! I love seeing him with Catherine Zeta-Jones (wife of Michael Douglas). Banderas is however married to Melanie Griffith (in May 1996).
I enjoyed his apperances with Catherine Zeta Jones most and am looking forward to his latest movie Thick as Thieves. I hated My Mom's New Boyfriend (who wouldn't? ;-)) but love Original Sin (with the super sexy Angelina Jolie as co-star, why not?). Banderas is essentially a thief of hearts, the way I've come to view him. Don't agree? How about the fact he captured millions of hearts with his performance of Nine the Musical, not to be confused with the upcoming Nine starring Nicole Kidman?
Antonio Banderas also sings in musicals, bet you didn't know that! He appeared to great acclaim in the Broadway revival of the musical Nine (last seen in 2003). He is the winner for both the Drama Desk and Theater World Awards (outstanding actor) & best actor in a musical in the Tony Award. Nine is the musical based on the book by Arthur Kopit & arranged musically by Mauri Yeston (who incidentally also composes for Titanic).
Ok, this is it, my review of Antonio Banderas. Next… MATT DAMON!
