Antonio Banderas's quotes

  • I don't want anything I don't deserve, [but] if they offer me more money, I'm not stupid.
  • [on his wife, Melanie Griffith, having more plastic surgery] This lust for beauty is a terrible thing. I've forbidden her from ever going to a cosmetic surgeon again. It is something we have agreed to for the sake of our marriage.
  • If they had offered me James Bond, I probably couldn't have gone to England anymore in my life. James Bond with an accent? That would have been something.
  • Melanie [wife Melanie Griffith] is more of a disciplinarian with the little girl than me, probably because it's my first baby. She gets everything easy from Papa. I am more weak. She takes advantage of me.
  • I admired [wife Melanie Griffith] before I loved her.
  • I get more attention as "the pussycat" in Shrek the Third (2007) than I ever did as Zorro.
  • I don't believe in careers, I just picture myself always as one of those old actors from the 19th century who go from village to village in their repertoire.
  • When you see actors on the red carpet, they seem to know each other but really it's like a wax museum. Los Angeles is probably one of the fakest cities in the world. For me, it is a working place.
  • There is nothing in the world that cannot be cured by love. That is the most thing.
  • [1995] I don't want to have anything that I don't deserve. Sometimes, it even bothers me just to see my name built up more than it actually is. I never believe anything that is happening to me, probably because I am very insecure.
  • I feel content. I am 51 years old and I see a lot of work, a lot of people, a lot of faces, a lot of souls. And I feel like I am in the middle of the game. The match is not over and I may score some goals.
  • Why do people accept so easily the fact that you can take the life of somebody on the screen and nobody is going to complain about it, and they cannot take that you will kiss somebody of your own sex on the mouth?
  • [on working with Pedro Almodóvar] The feelings I had in the '80s, and had again, is that he's pushing you to the limits: that you are on the verge of a cliff. You are in a situation of vertigo. I don't think Pedro works for the masses.
  • [2015, on his ex-wife Melanie Griffith] I want - and I think she does too - to maintain a relationship because we have spent many years together... I would like to maintain a relationship and it is happening, I speak with her every other day.
