“I would like to add that I am relatively OK, just a little 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,” Banderas wrote in Spanish, according to The Guardian.

The Spanish star added: “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.”

Banderas is best known for his roles in film such as ‘Desperado’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Mexico’.
