The Mask of Zorro star Antonio Banderas, who turned 54 on August 10, was recently seen painting the town red in Saint-Tropez, just two months after he and wife Melanie Griffith announced in June that they were getting a divorce. On Saturday, Banderas was seen dancing with different women at the French restaurant L’Opera in the coastal town.
Banderas, making the most of his newly single status, reportedly danced with a woman in a form-fitting white dress and chatted intimately with another lady who was wearing a black sleeveless dress. He was seen being affectionate to the women he spoke and danced with, smiling and wrapping his arms around them. Daily Mail reported that other women in the restaurant seemed thrilled to be in his presence even though he didn’t personally address them.

At the end of the night, the Expendables 3 actor was seen leaving the club with a woman wearing a sexy jumpsuit. According to People En Espanol, this wasn’t the first time that Banderas had been seen with the woman as they had been spotted together in Cannes, France in May. Previously considered one of the longest-running partnerships in Hollywood, Banderas and Griffith’s marriage came to an end when they announce that they were getting divorced. On June 6, Griffith filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. However, the couple made a joint statement, saying, “We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost 20 years of marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together.”

According to a source that spoke to Us, there was no cheating on either side of the pair, and they had simply fallen out of love a while back. Griffiths reportedly asked for spousal support, child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of their daughter Stella.
