The 54-year-old blames society, not Hollywood, for the obsession it has with women looking young, but admits that men have it easier than women in Hollywood.

He said: “There’s a social convention that allows men to grow older and not be so criticized and pushed about beauty, and for women it’s different.”

Banderas, who is originally from Malaga, has previously spoken out against plastic surgery, saying he finds grey hair and wrinkles ‘interesting’.

Having called time on his 18-year marriage with Melanie Griffith, 57, last summer, he is now dating 34-year-old Nicole Kimpel.
