Antonio Banderas graced a Mediterraneo Club event at his Malaga hometown in Spain wearing a different look. The Mask Of Zorro star showed off his graying, natural long locks— a contrast from his short back and sides. He wore a cream-colored shirt over a pair of tan chinos and suede boots, completing the look with a silver crucifix necklace.
Antonio, who released his latest film, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, early this year, also opened a restaurant in the same club’s Malaga headquarters in July. The outlet, La Pérgola del Mediterráneo, was privately launched with sixty diners to test the waters.
Antonio’s life-changing illness
In a discussion with Radio Times, Antonio shared how his heart attack from six years ago helped him “recognize what was important” and inspired his last Puss In Boots film. “It probably was one of the best things that happened in my life. It was like putting glasses on and seeing what was important,” he said. “I think it’s a beautiful message, and I think it was done properly.”
His experience also helped him enjoy his career and take acting more seriously. “I came back to Spain and started looking at my professional life from a different point of view… I don’t care about anything else. For me, life starts when somebody says, ‘Action!’– or when the curtain comes up,” he added.
