In the video below, Antonio Banderas, star of the hit film "Puss in Boots," opens up about the flurry of emotions he felt hosting President Obama at his home for a fundraiser in October. Despite having the secret service in his house for a week and the fact that the "girls were nuts" picking a dress, he says it was "like a fairy tale."

He also talks about his most recent film, "Puss in Boots," which ranked #1 over Halloween weekend and broke the record for most ticket sales over a Halloween weekend by bringing in $34.1 million.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Banderas will be co-producing a new pilot for Lifetime called American Housewife with his wife, Melanie Griffith. The show "centers on a mother of two children who has conversations with her inner voice while dealing with one of her kids leaving home for college and the other remaining at home." Griffith is in negotiations to star in the drama.

In addition, Banderas, who received acclaim for his Broadway performance in NINE, told the New York Post that he plans to star in the Broadway revival of "ZORBA!" in the 2012-2013 season.
