    Its a damn shame he let himself go like that and never took care of himself like Stallone did. I partly blame his marriage to Melanie Griffith and the other half just laziness

    I must say, I´ve never seen a spanish guy, that belonged most of his life to the spanish culture, and it´s so well adapted to the world mind. I noticed that since they are very special, his culture and ideals are a little bit different of what usually another cultures share, it´s pretty hard to describe or explain. I'm pleasantly surprised. Definitely a special man; may be the unique and first spanish that is actually a world citizen, and his culture doesn´t affect his capacity to be on the same level of the other people, just gives him certain superficial differences (as it happens with most people of any culture)

    In 1976 and 1977 Spain was already a democracy, there was no need for these protests to be made, He portraits himself like a political rebel, dont believe a word He says.

    OK, before I watch the thing - I love me some Antonio Banderas. And his into and his bow confirms my admiration. I walk past a poster for his new film every day, and it makes me a little sad, how white his beard is in the picture - because I love his Zorro.

    Antonio Banderas is a Zionist prick. This is the guy who raises millions of dollars for the "army" (terrorist thugs in uniform) that bombs crowded apartment buildings, hospitals and schools, and shoots unarmed protesters.

    ...>?Very funny joke about his English accent...;) So,..,,? Antonio stills speaks w/ a Mexican accent:) I guess El Zorro part lives within)))....I loved the part where Anthony Hopkins is teaching him to withhold his Mexican-temper to become more proficient at wilding the Spanish-sword...How old was Antonio in 1976...? So, he is such a historian about a Dictator that died in 1975...really???...:)))) ; And, of course, he also knows every thing about Spanish Flamenco guitar, after all, he is native of Gipsy Spain...

    Stephen, can I please have Antonio's Picasso drawing of you? I adore it. I love art, I love Stephen Colbert, and Antonio Banderas actually did a lovely portrait of you. Really brings out your eyes. It's perfect. It makes me happy.

  • Crazy Cat Lady From Shithole Country

    The Illuminati is now after Antonio Banderas. If anything happens to him , his family and his pets, its not an accident,T.G.O.T.H.W is behind it.


    Oh gush my idol Antonio banderas.,.

    He directed one of my favorite movies it's called "Crazy in Alabama". I'm thankful that Colbert let Antonio do most of the talking in this interview.

  • bulletproofman323

    He has grown considerably older. Still looks great though. Meanwhile Salma Hayek still looks basically exactly the same as when she did Desperado with him.

    FYI: I read that Antonio B. shaved his head and eyebrows to play Picasso. So, while he is getting older - 57 now - and most likely has gray hairs like some of us, his look is apparently representative of the role. I think I might have wept if I would've been around during the head and eyebrow shaving

    Bold sketches from both Banderas and Colbert; taking on Picasso’s art style while being timed is no simple task! 🖊 We love hearing about how the role of Picasso informed Antonio, just as his masterful portrayal in Genius: Picasso impacted us.
