Everything is ready for the great film festival to be held in Los Angeles this evening, the Oscars, which this year reach the 95th edition. Antonio Banderas (62 years old) has flown to Hollywood, who will be one of the in charge of presenting one of the categories, as well as delivering the famous Academy statuette to the winner on the stage of the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. He will not do it alone, but with him will be one of his best friends, the Mexican Salma Hayek (56 years old). When Antonio Banderas arrived in Los Angeles, accompanied by his wife at the time, Ana Leza, Salma was one of his greatest supporters and their friendship has endured over the years. Antonio did not hesitate to publicly support Salma when she revealed the sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of producer Harvey Weinstein.
“Rehearsal morning”, Antonio Banderas wrote on his Instagram, although they will not need to rehearse much since both Antonio and Salma are great professionals accustomed to this type of ceremonies.

Antonio also gets along very well with Dakota Johnson (33 years old), daughter of Melanie and Don Johnson, to the point that Chris Martin’s current partner refers to him as ‘daddy’.
