António Banderas Saved by Drag

The Spanish actor said he was driving a motorbike in 1976 when he got into a accident.

“The front wheel of my motorbike went into a ditch and, boom! I hit a car and my head hit the tank,” he told to The Independent. A ‘drag queen’ in a wig and dress – “came from nowhere, got in the middle of the road and stopped a car to take me to hospital”.

Pain and Glory tells story of gay film director.

Written and directed by his frequent collaborated Pedro Almodóvar, the Spanish-language drama sees Banderas play Salvador Mallo, a gay film director who finds himself examining his own past as his health declines.
