Antonio Banderas calls heart attacks “one of the best things” that can happen

Banderas is currently in Puss Boots: The Last Wish in cinemas for the second time this year.

Antonio Banderas enjoys “Being Alive” after suffering a heart attack.

Banderas, who is currently starring in a production of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Company in Madrid, is making the press rounds in support of his new film Puss Boots: The Last Wish and discussing at length his 2017 heart attack for the first time.

“I realized that it was probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me, because the things that didn’t matter and that I worried about every day didn’t matter,” he told Page Six.

“I thought why do I worry about this if I’m going to die?” he said. “I always knew it [that I was going to die], but now I know. I saw it here.”

Puss in Boots also deals with mortality as Banderas’ titular character discovers that he has only one of his nine lives left and embarks on a quest to discover the last wish and restore all nine.

Banderas has been busy since his heart attack. In addition to Puss in Boots, he appeared in Uncharted this year and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny hits theaters next year. Still, he joked on the red carpet with Puss in Boots co-star Salma Hayek that he should have made a dance appearance in their upcoming movie Magic Mike’s Last Dance.

“He would have. He would have shamed her,” Hayek said. “He’s a really good dancer, Antonio.” Banderas recently proved that when he directed and starred in a Spanish-language production of A Chorus Line in Barcelona in 2019 played.

In her review of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, IndieWire critic Emma Stefansky wrote, “Perhaps it is the dexterity with which ‘The Last Wish’ introduces the audience to the format of the lesson of the day that ‘The Last Wish ‘ sets apart most animated children’s films. Ultimately, Puss’ desire to be free of death prevents him from enjoying life – a somewhat more somber concept than is typically found in children’s media, especially for an audience as young as this film’s. However, it never plasters what it has to say across the entire screen, allowing the story beats to unfold in a natural and surprising way.”
