Antonio Banderas has a shaved head & shaved eyebrows now: hot or not?

Antonio Banderas attends a photocall for 'Genius: Picasso'

Back in the day, I was so hot for Antonio Banderas. Desperado-era Banderas is really my jam – by the time The Mask of Zorro came around and everyone was bandwagoning their crushes on him, I was like “eh, over it!” But Desperado/Mambo Kings era? LOVE IT. And as such, I’ve always had such a deep affection for Antonio. He seems like a really nice, lovely man. But would I still hit it? Eh.

These are photos of Antonio from the Madrid photocall for National Geographic’s Genius: Picasso anthology series. NatGeo did Einstein, and now the new season is about Picasso, with Banderas playing Picasso. At this photocall, Antonio debuted his newly shaved dome. Are you feeling this? I am not. CB and I are always debating men and hair. CB enjoys a bald/shaved dome with men whereas I’m in the “no thanks” column most of the time. What can I say, I like my men furry. Antonio is 57 years old now and this lack of hair makes him look his age. Which is refreshing in one sense and depressing in another sense, considering how beautiful he was circa Desperado. And is it just me or does he look like he’s morphing into someone else entirely? Like… a little bit of Anthony Hopkins, a little bit of Bruce Willis.

The lack of eyebrows is really not helping either.

    This is not a good look at all in any way.

  2. minx says:

    No, just no.

    • Alix says:

      Dear Lord, WHY??

      • Snazzy says:

        Maybe the eyebrows fell out? My poor mom has that problem – she’s had thick brows all her life and then suddenly, bam, nothing. She has them tattooed on now

  3. Wow says:

    He looks like a retired serial killer, if there’s even such a thing.

  4. Sayrah says:

    Not hot. I was thinking of him in desperado recently. Wow was he hot

  5. CTgirl says:

    He looks like a fig.

  6. Beth says:

    Not hot. Some guys look hot and gorgeous with a shaved head…..he’s not one of them

  7. Rapunzel says:

    Except for the missing eyebrows, he looks like my late grandpa. Ewwwww.

  8. Icantremembermyusername says:

    He looks kinda like me since I finished chemo. Not fun. Losing the hair is a humbling experience, but when I lost my brows and lashes, I wept. It makes you look ill, no matter whether you are or not. He is a very handsome man- but looks terrible. Seriously wondering what happened to his brows. I can handle bald but the brow thing- what? Why?

    • sadie77az says:

      I’m so sorry for what you had to go through. You are obviously a fighter.

    • Miasys says:

      @Icantremembermyusername – you are a baller, rock star, supernova bad ass! Best wishes to you on your recovery. It takes mad bravery to do chemo & even more to talk about it. Thank you for sharing your story.

  9. Erica says:

    Isn’t the point to look like Picasso? Because he definitely looks like him! Let’s hope he grows his hair back ASAP post-promotion.

  10. Mina says:

    I assume it’s for work reasons and not for aesthetics. He looks a lot more like Picasso shaved like that, and I think it speaks highly of him that he’s willing to shed the latin lover look for a job that will mean something in his not so stellar career lately.

  11. Darla says:

    Um, NOT

  12. PunkyMomma says:

    No. Just no.

  13. Ayra. says:

    I am horrified.

  14. SuzyQ says:

    He looks like Picasso. Perfect. Except, the height, although, Banderas isn’t very tall, either.

  15. Frosty says:

    Picasso has such a piercing look and Banderas is like a sweet puppy.

  16. Sasha says:

    Most people don’t even look human without hair and especially eyebrows. You know those photoshopped images of beautiful people where they remove JUST the eyebrows and they look crazy? I think the fact that Antonio still looks more or less human means that he will be back to his handsome self once the hair comes back.

    • keek says:

      Thats insensitive comment to make. Inhuman??whatabout those that lose hair to no fault of their own? Maybe some people look less attractive to you? Sure. But what is beauty and since when does it have one standard? I know many cases of those who look beautiful- depends on an individual and their features. Don’t lump people together and label them inhuman. Please.

  17. Littlestar says:

    No, but at least it’s for a role and not his new look. Desperado era Banderas was fire

  18. sadie77az says:

    Not. But I guess that’s kind of the point here?

  19. Esmom says:

    Yuck. I assume this was for a role. For me, Banderas is like Jude Law in that he was smokin’ hot for about 5 minutes and then declined pretty rapidly.

  20. Lala says:

    It’s Antonio…so…yea…HECKY YEA!!! Especially when he speaks…AHH…YES!!!!

  21. Shijel says:

    I’d do it. It’s for a role anyway. He does look his age here though.

  22. Fabulous says:

    Definitely NOT hot but I still would – I’d just close my eyes 😀

  23. moo says:

    yeah, the chemo look doesn’t suit everyone…. Embrace your grey, Puss!

  24. Ce2495 says:

    I still would hit it 😉

  25. KiddV says:

    I think he looks like Batboy. It’s the big eyes and ears. And in the first picture his teeth look pointy.

    I’ve never been a fan of his, until he speaks. I melt every damn time.

    OMG, I watched Desperado about 1,000 times. That may be where my love of him & Salma stems from. So friggin hot. Now? Gah! Yikes, just no.
