Antonio Banderas, known for his performances in a series of high-profile films including “Evita,” “Philadelphia” and “Interview With the Vampire,” spent some time in the hospital earlier this month, but is said to be doing OK now.
Banderas, 56, experienced pain in his chest while he was working out at his home in Surrey, England, on Jan. 19, according to media reports. He was transported to a hospital following a call for emergency services.
A rep for Banderas told People magazine: “We can confirm that last Thursday Antonio was admitted to hospital after having experienced chest pain while exercising. However, Antonio was released that same day after doctors performed a check-up, which confirmed his good health.”
Banderas sent out an update on his Instagram account, posting a photo of himself and his girlfriend, Dutch investment consultant Nicole Kimpel, along with the message: “Enjoying nature after a startle. Besos.”
