Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith simply grew apart after one of the longest not-gay cover marriages in Hollywood. There were rumors that the couple broke up over Antonio having an affair with hot Indian actress Mallika Sherawat, but Mallika adamantly denies any illicit rendezvous:
Antonio Banderas is a wonderful man, a great dancer and an acquaintance of mine.
Um, I think that’s a denial. As for Melanie, as with all women who decided to get their lover’s names tattooed forever on their bodies, breakup meant a trip to the busy offices of Dr. Tattoff for a date with the laser. She could’ve gone with ‘Love My Man’ or ‘Cock is Awesome’ or something more generically Hallmark, but ‘Antonio’ meant a painful series of dermatological abrasions. Antonio had Melanie’s name tattooed as well, but he took the more expedient route and just amended it to read, ‘Melanie Griffith Also Thinks I’m a Great Dancer’
