Something wasn't quite right with Antonio Banderas. But his wife, Melanie Griffith, only later realized what was wrong.
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. "That night, when we got to the hotel, she was just looking at me weird ... and she said to me, 'Now I understand why you acted like that the last three months of your life!' "
