For many years, Pedro Almodovar was very upset with Antonio Banderas.

Pedro had just introduced Antonio to the world and the Spanish actor’s star was on the rise.

The director offered him a role in his next movie, but Antonio turned it down to act in The Mambo Kings.

Word is that Pedro felt that Antonio has sold-out and gone Hollywood and since then they spoke every now and then, but the love was gone.

Now, Antonio stars in the new Almodovar film The Skin I Live In and the actor talks of the tension that used to exists between the two. He said:

“He made me, so in a way I was his. He saw my leaving as treason. He’s needed time to forgive me.”
