Antonio Banderas Spotted With Woman In Cannes

Back in 2012 Antonio Banderas used the opportunity of being in Cannes and away from Melanie Griffith to spend time with two women, whom he was more than just friends. Apparently 2014 is no different because the actor was spotted with another woman at dinner this past week and kept his arm around her the whole night. With all the rumors about Antonio over the past few years and the little amount of time the couple actually spends together, you would think Melanie would just have given up by now. I don't know if she is staying married for the sake of the kids or she doesn't want another divorce or just believes everything the guy says to her about the women, but when there is smoke there is fire.

Why is this not a blind? What makes the difference between a blind and a fact?

jack ducky said...

Maybe they have an open marriage.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Violet, I suspect that this will be a catalyst used to bring forth Reveals.

The Real Dragon said...

Or maybe they have an understanding or she doesn't give a fuck

Kno Won Uno said...

Seriously, why assume the woman is a long-suffering idiot? Maybe she doesn't care, maybe she chooses the women for him.
It just bugs me when the woman is always assumed to be in the dark, or standing by her man. It's 2014.
If we know it, she knows it.

auntliddy said...

I think she just turns a blind eye. She has done quite a number on herself with surgeries and all, and I think has convinced herself no one else would want here. Sad, actually.

Jazzy said...

They don't have an open marriage and she spends all day trying to keep tabs on him. She will never leave him though. I know from first hand experience.

Seven of Eleven said...

Ah, remember the lovely BI about how he doesn't want her on set and doesn't want to work with her because he wants to cheat on set? (Was that a reveal, too?)

You're so right, @Charlie.

Lady Heisenberg said...

IMO then, we can assume blinds about Antonio doing everything he can to rid of Mel are true too. If he is cheating openly at an event like Cannes, sounds like a pretty clear and deliberate fuck-you! Banderas is pushing her ass away however he can methinks. Either that or he is really pushing it BECAUSE he knows Mel won't leave him. Either way, sounds like a hot mess.

plokzy said...

Don't blame him. She's about 20 years past her prime, looks 30 years past her prime, and that face just screams "crackpot"

aemish said...

Sads

texas rose said...

At least one half of the couple thinks its an open marriage.

Sunshine said...

She can't leave - she got that hideous Antonio tattoo on her arm.

jack ducky said...

So that's obviously a reason for him to cheat if he is in fact cheating. I don't understand why people can't just break up if they're unhappy with who they're with.

auntliddy said...

ploz- i dont agree with you,, but I like the face that screams "crackpot"!

Tina Mallette said...

The better question is why doesn't Banderas man up, grows some balls and leave this woman if he is unhappy. He isn't even hiding his cheating at Cannes where he knows the paparazzi are out in full force.

I find that just as mystifying as women who cling onto these losers.

Jessica Larson said...

I think they are really only married in name anymore.

Mel has really done a number on her face, both her & Goldie should of just stuck with needles & lasers. The Dr's knives have scarred them both horribly.

Sarah said...

I guess "til death do us part " should now include "or when HER looks fade, whichever comes first"

Tina Mallette said...

Well Sarah shallow is as shallow does.

Unfortunately Melanie whose mother is still gorgeous fell in love with two of the most narcissistic and shallow men on the planet, Don Johnson and Antonio Banderas and Johnson in her formative years in fact I am pretty sure Melanie was not "legal" when they hooked up but that also did not seem to bother Tippie. It was during the age of hippies and free love you see.

Froggy England said...

You know,,he might actually love her and want to stay with her',,...he just screws around and she is ok with it, these women are probably nothing more than a piece of ass to him, the truth is no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.
If he's still married, it's because he wants to be. No one is holding a gun to his head. If she's still married, it's because she wants to be, she will know or suspect about the other women and no one is holding a gun to her head either. If they are still married it's because they want to be, there is no benefit to their careers or children in faking it.

Danielle Williams said...

She probably has her own life. It is financially agreeable to stay with him. If he is paying all the bills, I am drinking/using all I want, and have my own side piece why would she leave? IJS

fancyscreenname said...

@plozky
the same can b said for him. The bloom is off the rose for him as well.

Renoblondee said...

She was 14 when Don first slept with her.

Tina Mallette said...

He actually loves her? are you kidding me - if we presume all of this is true, a man who loves a woman would not publicly embarass her even if she is OK with it.

You mean a man who loves his money, he doesn't want to fork out for the divorce.

crila16 said...

He's been cheating on Melanie for years. She probably doesn't want another failed marriage. She probably doesn't care that he cheats anymore. She's too over it and too tired to make a stink about it.

Tina Mallette said...

It= having sex with other women.

Frankly I don't know why Melanie didn't do the tit for tat long ago. Find a man that Banderas is jealous of or despises or just younger and hotter and even if she has to pay the guy, embarrass Banderas publicly. You will see the double standard in play as he then would be filing for divorce so quick our heads would spin.

Sherry said...

Truly some people don't want to get divorced for a number of reason. I'd like to hear what Jazzy knows behind the scenes.

There have been rumors that Melanie is extremely jealous (remember when he did Evita with Madonna? Apparently she was stuck like glue to him).

While what he does MAY be breaking her heart she may have decided it's worth whatever she gets from it. Financial support and living a lifestyle to which you have become accustomed is hard to give up. AND she didn't move onto directing or producing or writing like some actresses do when the parts dry up so she may feel her options are
limited.

No one really knows for sure.

Eros said...

Lol true texaa rose. Half of Hollywood may fit into that equation unfortunately.

trudi said...

He holds the balance of power in this relationship. They'll breakup if he decides he wants out.
She'll hang on for dear life.

Lee said...

Spanish men from backgrounds like his don't divorce, at least not while his mom is still alive. Much more common to live separate lives. Despite his past as an Almodovar kid, he's pretty traditional.

Wino forever.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

AB Looks just as tired as his wife these days, but I'd still think his reputation could pull better than that one in tbe pic.

Tina Mallette said...

If you are just in it to keep the lifestyle, so she sticks to him like glue because she is protecting her investment? Though various net worth sites says Melanie is worth $20 million on her own.

califblondy said...

His looks have faded too and that haircut? Ugh.

8=====D aka Lil Tool. KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

Banderas is a socialist (a real one, not that Obama). There are no f words in the world that he doesn't give about divorce. If he is still with Melanie (and is really cheating) it is probably because he has stability (a house, kids and that) and doesn't want to change just to stick it in new pussy (or pussi, if more than one). MG agrees if he pays the bills and makes her company.
Meaning of this: he just wanted an affair.

Beth said...

I'm of the age to remember MG on Working Girl when she was cute and hot. A real woman I admired for being feisty and natural--I had always hoped she was close to her character in some regard. Hope she recognizes she deserves a hell of a lot better than what she's got right now. She's always struck me as a tender soul with rotten taste in men. Hope she finds happiness.

Malibu Borebee said...

Crila's right, he's been cheating on her for years. Notorious for it. He's always believed in a "European" marriage. She didn't but maybe she's desperate enough that she's agreed to it now.

She may prove the old adage, how you get him is how you'll lose him.

Henriette said...

Melanie never had a chance. She's been used by men for so long that she doesn't know what end is up and her self-esteem is so far into the toilet that she just takes it.

Northbynorthwest said...

LOL I'm sure that family will find a way to somehow blame this on Alfred Hitchcock too.

Kassandra said...

Didn't read the comments (for the second time tonight) BUT...

There are often other factors in play besides women being young and hot with great bodies (personal experience).

Mature women with long-term partners (actors) have HISTORY, know the things that make a man that excite a man and get him off, or even (shocker) have the anatomy/capacity/sexual proclivities that a man might appreciate/enjoy/love in a woman and not just focus on a YOUNG.HOT.THING. This happens, believe it or not.

Jazzy said...

They were clients of a company I worked for. She was very nice to me when she came in. However, when he came in she would call in every 20 minutes to "check" on him. When he arrived, who assisted him when he arrived, who was in the room with him, for how long, etc. Our staff was 99% female and he would hit on all of us to no end. I have to admit, he never did it for me in the movies, but in person, he knows how to smoulder. I even got breathless once or twice. Melanie is sweet when not in stalking mode and can do much better.
