Antonio Banderas: between the film set and philanthropy

Attractive. Charismatic. Irresistibly authentic. These adjectives perfectly describe Antonio. He is a multi-talented man that has gone from internationally-acclaimed actor to photographer, film director, and fashion designer. His success has not changed him at the chore and he never has lost focus or forgotten his roots.

 

After spending more than 20 years in Hollywood and marrying one of the film screen icons: Melanie Griffith, Antonio returned to Europe after his divorce  maintaining an excellent relationship with his former wife.

 

For the Art & Culture without Borders Foundation his good heart was taken into consideration when he was granted one of the Foundation’s 2020 Awards. The award ceremony has been postponed to 2021 because of the Chinese virus. Antonio  is  an advocate for the rights of the disadvantaged, the underserved, the needy and the suffering. As founder of the Fundación Lagrimas y Favores, he provides scholarships and financial aid to underprivileged students at the University of Malaga. His foundation also works with Cudeca, an association dedicated to fund and manage palliative care for terminally ill cancer patients, and to provide support for their caretakers and families.

 

He has shown a heartfelt commitment to humanitarian causes. On more than one occasion, he has declared his concern for the difficult issues of our time, and never hesitates to act to fight social injustice, offering his image and time for charity events and solidarity activities. He firmly believes that when a person becomes a public figure and gains a certain level of persuasion and mass appeal, he/she must use that privilege to help others.

 

These personality traits have been taken to the world of the aromas thanks to his collaboration with the Spanish perfume company PUIG and together they have created three fragrances: Seduction, Secrets and Classics. According to Antonio, “My relationship with fragrances has been lifelong. It’s part of who I am and, over the years, has become a true passion.

 

There is no doubt that Antonio Banderas has succeeded in winning over the heart of Hollywood and the rest of the world with his unrivalled passion and his seductive personality.
