Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas wed on May 14, 1996 after meeting on the set of “Two Much” the year before. They welcomed a daughter, Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith, a few months later. Banderas spoke with AARP magazine about some of the hurdles they have faced as a married couple, including Griffith's struggle with addiction.
"Even in crisis, we have been patient enough to detect that at the end of the tunnel was a light. We have had as many problems as anybody. We've never hidden it. We've been open about addictions, in the case of Melanie,” he said. “She has overcome her problems beautifully. I didn't know she was so strong. It makes me love her even more, because she has been an unbelievable lion fighting, and she got it. The last [relapse] was three years ago, and it just welded us."
