He received $4 million as paycheck for the movie “Evita” starring Madonna and made $12 million from “The Body,” which was released in 2001, per Celebrity Net Worth.

He voiced “Puss In Boots” in the “Shrek” franchise. Banderas was a part of “Shrek 2,” “Shrek the Third,” and “Shrek Forever After.” With the success of the movies, it resulted in a “Puss In Boots” spinoff in 2011. The four movies made an estimate of at least $3 billion in worldwide box office. This cemented his legacy as one of the most sought after voice talents of his generation. He won best actor at the Cannes Festival in 2019 for the movie “Pain and Glory.”

The Málaga, Andalucia, Spain native is one of the few who can navigate different roles for different genres. He can be a tough guy in one movie and voice an animal on the next. Banderas also starred in independent films and worked as a film producer. He directed a movie once, entitled “Crazy in Alabama,” starring former wife Melanie Griffith, David Morse and Lucas Black. The movie went on to make $2 million at the box office.

On the personal side, he and Griffith divorced in 2015 after being married for 18 years. Among those included in the settlement were $780,000 annual spousal support and splitting incomes from entertainment projects until 2014. The two also sold their home in Los Angeles for $16 million. Griffith got to keep six cars while her former husband kept two. Banderas and Griffith maintain a high level of respect toward each other despite the split.

According to CNN, the actor recently revealed he has contracted COVID-19. Banderas admitted that he feels fine and will use the time to read, write and recuperate and make plans ahead.
