The Spanish actor was filming Pedro Almodóvar's psychological thriller The Skin I Live In, and it was consuming him.

"When Melanie watched the movie in Toronto, something interesting happened," Banderas, 51, said Wednesday at the film's New York Film Festival premiere.

Antonio Banderas & Melanie Griffith: We've Had As Many Problems As Anybody

Originally posted 09/22/2011 08:00AM

In 15 years of marriage, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith "have had as many problems as anybody," he admits. Among them was Griffith's stint in rehab, her third, two years ago.

"We've never hidden it. We've been open about addictions, in the case of Melanie," the actor tells AARP The Magazine in its November issue.

This openness extends to their children, says Banderas. The couple have one daughter together, Stella, who turns 15 this week. Griffith also has two children from previous relationships, Alexander, 26, and Dakota, 21.

"The pretending is the worst, because kids are so smart," Banderas says. "They can see through all of those things, and if you don't talk openly about problems, it creates a very dark place. They carry that through the rest of their lives, to their marriages, to their kids."

Antonio Banderas: Passion Keeps My Marriage to Melanie Alive

Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith are a rarity in Hollywood – a couple married for 15 years and still going strong despite divorce rumors and stints in rehab. So, what's their secret?

"There is one virtue that is very underrated and that's passion," Banderas told PEOPLE at the New York launch of his fragrance, The Secret. "If you lose your passion, all these other virtues that are way more important, they just all fall."

The actor, 49, who also displayed his first photography exhibition "Secrets on Black" with pieces auctioned via Charity Buzz to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, says that hard times can make a union stronger.

"We have been in crisis sometimes and we knew that if just waited to cross that tunnel that we were just in, at the end we were going to be stronger," he said. "We believed, very much, in each other and we've been battling with everything that happens in our lives because at the end we knew there was a reward. And the reward in my case was her."

It was certainly a cause for many celebrations.

"He did everything," Griffith 52, told PEOPLE about Banderas's help during her struggle. (Last August, Griffith entered rehab for the third time, following stints in 1988 and 2000.) "He has been an amazing man."

"It's tough," Banderas, 49, admitted to PEOPLE, as he and Griffith appeared on the red carpet for the animated feature Shrek Forever After, in which the handsome Spaniard is not seen but heard – as the swashbuckling feline Puss in Boots.
