Madrid – Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek put their feline charms on display around Madrid on Wednesday, ultimately arriving on the red carpet at the Callao theater, where their animated film "Puss in Boots" was being prescreened.
Several hundred fans waited in the downtown Callao Square to see the actors arrive and, if possible, to try and get an autograph and perhaps even a cell phone photograph taken with them.
The wait ended at 8 p.m. when Banderas and Hayek, who lend their voices to the film's characters Puss and Kitty Softpaws, showed up.
The actors moved across the red carpet to the shouts of "Antonio, te queremos" (Antonio, we love you) and "Salma, guapa" (Salma, you beauty), while they exchanged kisses with and gave autographs to some of the lucky fans.
Banderas did not let the chance go by to do a few flamenco dance steps accompanied by a women wearing traditional Andalusian dress to the strains of the characteristic music.
