Antonio Banderas Talks About “The 33” 


Honestly? Talking to Antonio Banderas made me feel like a #TBT Madonna way back in “Truth or Dare.” He’s still handsome, and charming, and sweet! In this interview, we talked about his experience watching the Chilean miners live when it happened and his real-life counterpart Mario Sepulveda.

“The 33” opens nationwide on Friday, November 13th.
