Spanish film star Antonio Banderas says he has recovered from a heart attack that he had in January.
The 56-year-old Banderas tells Spanish media that “I suffered a heart attack on Jan. 26, but it wasn’t serious and hasn’t caused any damage.”
Banderas says he underwent a procedure to introduce three stents in his arteries, adding that “it hasn’t been as dramatic as some have written.”
Banderas’ visit to a Swiss clinic had led to speculation about the health of the star known for roles in such films as “The Mask of Zorro,” ”Desperado,” ”Philadelphia” and the animated “Puss in Boots.”
He was also played the leading role in the film “The Original Sin”.
Banderas spoke Saturday at a film festival in his hometown of Malaga in southern Spain, where he received a lifetime achievement award for his career as an actor, director and producer.
