Banderas and Griffith yesterday.

One of Hollywood's leading men, Spanish actor Antonio Banderas and his wife, actress Melanie Griffith, flew in to Palma yesterday on board a private jet from England, just missing Michael Douglas who departed at 4pm. However, Douglas left them a note, welcoming them back to this “beautiful island” and said that the couple are more than welcome to visit Costa Nord “treat it as your home.” But the first thing on the Mask of Zorro star's mind is to get some sleep. “I ve just finished promoting my new film and we've had little sleep in the last 50 odd hours,” he said as he arrived. What has not helped is the massive hype there has been about the film Original Sin which stars Angelina Jolie. The film is based on the novel Waltz in the Darkness and is a tale of passion, jealousy and lies which Francois Truffaut first made in to The Sirene of Mississippi. This time around however, Banderas fans, of which there are millions, will be treated to the Spaniard acting in the nude. The new look Banderas said that he is already working on a new project, “but we're still waiting for the financing to be completed, and as soon as the funding does arrive, I'll be ready,” he said. Melanie Griffith said that she has a few projects on the table, nothing certain “but I'll tell you when I know,” she said as she giggled at all the press attention. Antonio and Melanie are in Majorca for a long weekend, staying on board a luxury yacht.
