Melanie Griffith's birthday tribute to Antonio Banderas

Melanie Griffith's birthday tribute to Antonio Banderas

Melanie Griffith will "always love" Antonio Banderas.

The 'Working Girl' actress may have split from the 'Puss in Boots' star in June 2014 but they still have a good relationship, as she proved when she wished her "ruggedly handsome" ex-husband a happy birthday on Wednesday (10.08.16).

Melanie - who turned 59 the day before her former spouse turned 56 - shared a red carpet photo of herself and Antonio on Instagram and wrote: "Happy Birthday to my ruggedly handsome ex husband. Will always love you.(sic)"

Meanwhile, Antonio also used social media to send a birthday message to Melanie.

He shared a picture of them with their 19-year-old daughter Stella and wrote in Spanish: "Happy birthday Melanie. A loving hug from Marbella."

Melanie - whose divorce from Antonio was finalised last December - recently admitted she is terrified at the thought of finding love again via internet dating.

When asked if she would do internet dating, Melanie replied: "F**k no! Are you kidding? No. Good lord. That would be scary!

"Looking across a crowded room, right? Isn't that the thing I'm not really looking, I'm just being, and I figure if I'm meant to have another relationship, I will, and if I'm not, then I won't."

The 'Something Wild' star - who also has children Alexander, 30, and Dakota, 27, from previous relationships - admits her life has changed a lot of the past few years and she's trying to embrace it.

She said: "I'm having a very introspective time right now. It's an interesting time. It's just sort of nice. My kids are all great. They're beautiful people. I'm single, and lonely, and bored, and confused - but then at the same time, totally curious. It's almost like I have to throw myself out of the nest.

"Life is moving on. My youngest, Stella, is starting USC in August, in two weeks. She'll be moving out, out. She's got a dorm and everything. So that's kind of a different thing. I won't have any kids at home."
