Taking to his official social media accounts, The Mask of Zorro and Desperado star revealed that he's celebrating his 60th birthday in quarantine after contracting the virus. The post, originally written in Spanish, translates: "Greetings to you all. I want to make public that today, 10th of August, I am forced to celebrate my 60th birthday in quarantine after being tested positive for COVID-19, caused by coronavirus."

Banderas added: "I would like to add that I'm relatively fine, just a little bit more tired than usual and confident to recover as soon as possible following the medical indications that I hope will allow me to overcome the infectious process that I suffer and that people is affecting around the planet."

The Cannes Best Actor awardee ended the post by sharing how he's planning to spend the quarantine period. "I will take advantage of this isolation to read, write and rest, continue making plans to begin to give meaning to my newly released 60 years to which came loaded with desire and illusion."


Un saludo a todos. Quiero hacer público que hoy, 10 de Agosto, me veo obligado a celebrar mi 60 cumpleaños siguiendo cuarentena al haber dado positivo de la enfermedad COVID-19, causada por el coronavirus. Me gustaría añadir que me encuentro relativamente bien, solo un poco más cansado de lo habitual y confiado en recuperarme lo antes posible siguiendo las indicaciones médicas que espero me permitan superar el proceso infeccioso que sufro y que a tantas personas está afectando alrededor del planeta. Aprovecharé este aislamiento para leer, escribir, descansar y seguir haciendo planes para comenzar a darle significado a mis recién estrenados 60 años a los cuales llego cargado de ganas y de ilusión. Un fuerte abrazo a todos. Antonio Banderas.
