Back in late January, there were rumors that Antonio Banderas was hospitalized with chest pains. On January 30th, his rep confirmed the hospitalization, but said he was “released that same day after doctors performed a check-up which confirmed his good health.”
Yesterday at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival, he told the press he suffered a heart attack on January 26th. The cardiac episode did not cause any lasting damage, but he did say, “I underwent an operation where they implanted three stents in my coronary arteries, and since I had suffered from arrhythmia for quite some time, I underwent thermoablation, but it wasn’t as dramatic as they say.”
Thankfully, now the actor is on the mend and looking as healthy as ever.
Rumors were circulating overnight that Antonio Banderas was hospitalized after experiencing chest pains while working out in London and today the actor and his rep explained what happened. His publicist told People, “We can confirm that last Thursday Antonio was admitted to hospital after having experienced chest pain while exercising. However, Antonio was released that same day after doctors performed a check-up which confirmed his good health.”
While those are just words, Banderas shared this photo of himself looking healthy today and said, “Enjoying nature after a startle. Besos.” Thankfully, he is OK because we need him to do another Puss in the Boots.
We know that Antonio Banderas is sexy, but he has never looked sexier than he does in the movie Salty. I have no idea what the film is about, but I will be there on opening day to see it. Heck, I might even steal the poster they have the lobby because I want the last thing I see at night to be him looking like Rico Suave’s hotter brother.
Lou Diamond Phillips was on Conan O’Brien’s show yesterday and he talked about filming The 33 in a confined space with Antonio Banderas. The actors got to know each other so well, that the La Bamba star understands why women are infatuated with his sexy co-star. LDP did a spot impression of him. Then as he was finishing up, he basically admitted that Antonio is so sexy that your panties just fall off. Leading to him declare that Antonio Banderas is the “Pied Piper of Panties.” That he is! That he is!
We all remember back in 2010, when 33 Chilean minors were trapped in a mine for 69 days. Their ordeal captivated the world and on the 69th day, when they were finally set free from the underground tomb, we all applauded their rescue and cried happy tears with their families.
Now five years later, those 69 days are being relived in the movie The 33. If the trailer is any hint to what the movie is going to be like, each individual, who goes to see it on November 13th, is going to need their own box of tissues.
I have a feeling The 33 will be an Oscar contender with Antonio Banderas leading the race.
