SUPPORT FOR SPANISH CINEMA: MELANIE GRIFFITH'S STAR APPEARANCE IN ANTONIO BANDERAS'S GOYA
People joke on Twitter with the possibility that Antonio Banderas, host of the best-received 2021 Goya Awards gala in recent years, has pulled his WhatsApp groups to succeed tonight. Thus, Emma Thompson, Salma Hayek or Silvester Stallone have sent videos to support their colleague in particular and the Spanish film industry in general. Also the ex-wife of the Malaga actor, Melanie Griffith.
Griffith, who belongs to the Hollywood aristocracy, since she is the daughter of director John Griffith and actress Tippi Hedren, star of some of Alfred Hitchcock's most popular films, such as The Birds or Marnie the Thief, wanted to intervene via Zoom from his Spanish-style home in Los Angeles. Antonio Banderas' second wife knows well what it is to work in Spain. In 1995 she released Two Much, the film by the Madrid filmmaker Fernando Trueba in which she co-starred with Daryl Hannah and during which she met the one who would be her great love. They were together for 18 years and have a daughter, Stella del Carmen. During the time that her relationship lasted, the protagonist, in addition to Armas de Mujer, tattooed the name of her husband on her arm, a tattoo that she ended up erasing when they broke up. What she has not eliminated from her life is, in addition to her friendship for Banderas, her love for Spanish cinema.
