Antonio Banderas Net Worth and Salary: Antonio Banderas is a Spanish film actor, director, producer and singer who has a net worth of $45 million dollars. Antonio Banderas is probably most widely recognized for his appearances in Spanish language films directed by Pedro Almodovar, and for hit Hollywood films such as “Interview with the Vampire”, “Philadelphia”, and “The Mask of Zorro”. He was born José Antonio Domínguez Banderas on August 10, 1960, in Málaga, Andalucia, Spain. Prior to becoming famous Hollywood star, Banderas longed to be a professional football player. However, his childhood dreams were shattered by a broken foot. He went on to take some drama classes and eventually joined a theater troupe that toured across Spain. After a number of early projects, Banderas finally caught international attention as a love-struck kidnapper in Almodóvar’s controversial comedy Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990). He made further exposition to American audiences as the object of Madonna’s lust in her documentary Truth or Dare in 1991. Although he was not speaking English at the time, Banderas saw his Hollywood acting debut in the drama The Mambo Kings (1992). Whereas with his turn as Tom Hanks’ devoted lover in the Academy Award-winning AIDS drama Philadelphia in 1993, he got the chance to prove that he was more than just a pretty face. Already in high demand, Banderas soon cashed in as an action hero in hits like Robert Rodriguez’s action film, Desperado (1995) and as the titular swordsman in The Mask of Zorro (1998) opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones. While he was pursuing a bankable acting career, he entered the world of directing with Crazy in Alabama (1999), a comedy-drama starring his former wife Melanie Griffith. Antonio Banderas also starred in several family features, like Rodriguez’s popular Spy Kids (2001) franchise and the hit animation Shrek 2 (2004), as well as its sequels. After two decade hiatus, he reunited with Almodóvar for the psychological thriller The Skin I Live In (2011), delivering what some call his strongest work to date. Gifted, handsome and charismatic, Antonio Banderas is rightfully considered to be one of the greatest leading men in Hollywood.

Interestingly, they agreed to allow each other to keep whatever money was earned from their own projects between May 1998 and December 2003.

Finally, Antonio agreed to pay Melanie $780,000 per year in spousal support, $65,000 per month for a number of years.
