melanie griffith antonio banderas bikini body france vacay trip

We had no idea where Melanie Griffith was headed when we spotted her sucking on a cigarette at the airport before a flight — and now we totally know where AND why!

If you're a smoker, then an international flight can be ROUGH without being able to have a cigarette (quitting would solve this, though!), so it makes sense! She and her hubby, Antonio Banderas, went to the south of France! Vacay time!

Which also means: BIKINI TIME!

At 56, Melanie has STILL GOT IT! From the toned tummy to the trim everything, we're super impressed!

Hope you guys are having fun! Have a fun birthday weekend — BOTH of you!

Antonio Banderas Wants Violence Against Women To End!

| Filed under: ViolenceAntonio Banderas

And so do we!!

Today is International Women's Day, and to celebrate accordingly, Antonio Banderas made a video in hopes to urge people to help end violence against women.

The Spanish actor is the United Nations Development Program Goodwill Ambassador, and because up to 60 percent of women and girls are abused around the world sometime during their life, he wants you to do something if you see something, and we totally agree with him.

Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) for more deets!

It can get COLD in those stadiums!!

Antonio Banderas is not about to be taken by surprise by the bonkers AC over at the Staples Center. NO WAY!

He has a backup plan… and it's called being prepared with a sweater. LOLz!

Though, we have another theory: Antonio actually IS Zorro, and hides his identity by shelving the real cape for a stand in. It's the perfect plan!

We're on to you, Antonio! Ha!

He's still got it!

Antonio Banderas, who demonstrated his action star capabilities on screen as Zorro, demonstrated his action sports capability in Aspen, Colorado as a skier.

The actor hit the slopes on Tuesday morning for a solo run and expertly navigated the white powder.

Glad to see Antonio is still staying active after turning 51 this past summer.

Antonio Banderas And Melanie Griffith Talk About Addiction And Marriage

| Filed under: DrugsLove LineFamilyAddictionAntonio Banderas

AARP

Addiction is a lifelong battle and nobody knows that better than Melanie Griffith, who has visited rehab three times in her lifetime.

Luckily, she's got a great family to give her the support she needs to keep fighting the good fight.

In the November issue of AARP Magazine, Melanie and her husband, Antonio Banderas, give separate, but equally revealing interviews about their marriage.

While Antonio openly admits they "have had as many problems as anybody", one thing is clear, their 15-year marriage is as strong as ever.

Recalling her first encounter with Banderas on the set of the 1995 film Too Much, she said:

"The first thing he asked me was my age. I said, 'That's the rudest thing anyone has asked me first.' But there was something about him. Still is. I just love him."

Perhaps the strength is partly due to their ability to remain open to each other and their kids, instead of attempting to mask the issues.

Speaking about his wife's addiction problems, Antonio says they have "never hidden it" from their 15-year-old daughter Stella or Melanie's older children from previous relationships, Alexander and Dakota. He explained:

"The pretending is the worst, because kids are so smart. They can see through all of those things, and if you don't talk openly about problems, it creates a very dark place. They carry that through the rest of their lives, to their marriages, to their kids."

After Melanie's third admission into rehab two years ago, Antonio insists in his version of events that the whole family participated in her recovery and "did all the therapies together."

She remembers the experience differently, however, and revealed:

"I'm sorry to say, that's in his mind. … I started on pain pills when I hurt my knee skiing and just kept taking them. The kids knew; Dakota and Stella called me on it. Antonio was in London at the time. I went away to rehab for three months; it took 10 days just to detox. We had two family weeks there, but we didn't follow through. Antonio was supportive to the extent that he can be, but if you're not an alcoholic or drug addict, and you find out that your wife is a bad one, it's hard to deal with. … I wish he would go to a meeting with me or to Al-Anon, but it's very foreign to him. Addiction runs in my family but not in his."

Even though he may not have been as supportive as she would have liked, she doesn't blame him and can only praise his loyalty, adding:

"I don't mean that against him. I would like him to do more, but it's a difficult thing to have happen in any family, and in that way he has been totally by my side. He really is the greatest guy."

Marriage really is for better and for worse. It's clear these two understand that and we couldn't be happier for them!
