He is definitely one of the best and most versatile actors out there; from The Mask of Zorro to Spy Kids he brought his A-Game 100 percent. There is no way to deepen the subject of Antonio Banderas wife, girlfriend, daughter, dead, and his height without learning some interesting facts about the star itself. Stay seated and get all the information you have.
He was born on 10 August 1960 in the Andalusian city of Málaga as José Antonio Domínguez Banderas. He was born in the house of José Domínguez, a policeman of the Civil Guard, and Ana Banderas Gallego, a teacher. He took his mother’s surname as his stage name.
Becoming an actor was not his first passion, it was his dream to become a professional football player until a broken foot pushed his dreams aside at the age of fourteen. Soon after he showed a strong interest in the performing arts and was part of the ARA Theatre School under the direction of Ángeles Rubio-Argüelles y Alessandri. He worked in the theatre and also performed in the street. This led to him landing a seat at the Spanish National Theatre.
In 1991 Madonna introduced Banderas to Hollywood. The following year he began to speak minimal English, play in US movies, and has dominated ever since.
As much as we’d like to talk about the star, it’s time to start with this theme, starting with Antonio Bandera’s wife.
Antonio Banderas Wife/Girlfriend
The star has been married twice and we will take a look at his two marriages, maybe we can get an idea of why it was so short-lived. The first lady to carry the title of Antonio Bandera’s wife was Ana Leza and they were married from 1987-1996.
Antonio Banderas Wife; Ana Leza
His first marriage was certainly not as high-profile as his last, but Anna Leza was somehow a big deal. Leza was born in Madrid, Madrid, Spain as Ana Arana Leza and is an actress, she was known for movies like Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988), Of Love and Shadows (1994), and El Placer de matar (1988). She married Antonio Banderas on 27 July 1987, then they were divorced in 1996.
Before that, they were together for five months and their marriage lasted eight years, we have to admit that they were together for quite a long time. Ana has now moved on and is married to Dharma Villareal.
Antonio Banderas Wife; Melanie Griffith
The couple had been together for 18 years and it was by far one of the most long-lived Hollywood marriages out there, so it was quite a surprise when Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from 53-year-old Antonio Banderas, citing irreconcilable differences. Let’s take a look back when her romantic relationship was still intact. On the set of the 1995 film Two Much, the two fell in love. Their daughter, Stella Del Carmen Banderas, was born on September 24, 1996.
Although her daughter was about to turn 18 the year the divorce was filed, Griffith asked for full custody and child support. According to some documents filed by disso-queen Laura Water, it is quite controversial – Stella, her only child together, turns 18 in September. It is said that the divorce is amicable, but Griffith has asked for support for the marriage.
Apparently, the cause of the split was the result of infidelity from Antonio’s side, she is not a family that is free of the shadow of vice. Antonio has his fraud allegations and Melanie had her drug addiction and her alcoholism. Yet this is not her first rodeo. This is officially Griffith’s fourth divorce and Banderas’ second.
Antonio Banderas Daughter/Dead
Antonio and Melanie have a daughter and as already mentioned, her name is Stella del Carmen Banderas and she was born on September 24, 1996. She is a model and an actress and some of them may remember her work in the movies “Crazy in Alabama”, “Banzai” and some others. As expected, she was quite shocked by the divorce of her parents.
