Antonio Banderas steps out with young girlfriend

Action hero dating Dutch bombshell 20 years his junior.


News Desk December 24, 2014

Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith have been maintaining relatively low profiles since their split, but that’s about to change—at least for Antonio. The Zorro actor seemingly has moved on from his former wife of 18 years and is seeing Nicole Kimpel, a Dutch investment consultant, who is quite the bombshell, reported Eonline!. The two began quietly dating after his marriage ended earlier this year. It looks like they have at least one thing in common — health and fitness.

The two were spotted going for a jog in Marbella, Spain, where the 54-year-old macho actor led the charge. One must admit, not too shabby for someone who is 20 years older than his girlfriend. Although they have been spotted multiple times and seem to be getting more serious, the Puss in Boots star recently has revealed he’s taking it slow.

“We are in the process of getting to know each other,” he said. “She is shy and doesn’t have anything to do with my work, which is not a bad thing at all.”

His love life isn’t the only thing that’s heating up lately. The movie star is also set to appear in a couple of highly anticipated films, including Knight of Cups and 33 Días. He certainly has been keeping busy since calling it quits with Griffith, and so has she.

The Working Girl star was a guest celebrity judge for Best in Drag along with Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dallas star Josh Henderson, Kathy Griffin, Mary-Louise Parker, Jennifer Coolidge, Holland Taylor, Dot-Marie Jones and Kathy Kinney. During the star-studded event, she debuted a big bandage on her arm, which was covering up her soon-to-be removed tattoo dedicated to Antonio.

“We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalise our almost 20 years marriage in a loving and friendly manner honouring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together,” Griffith and Banderas said in a joint statement.
