Your favorite “Spy Kids” star is now selling… candles?
Antonio Banderas is one of the kings of ’90s movies. He brought us such gems as Miami Rhapsody,Desperado, Evita and The Mask of Zorro. Not to mention the kid-friendly movies he made in the early ’00s, like Shrek and Spy Kids. Well, guess what? He’s still the king, except now Banderas is the king of candles.
That’s right, Banderas is now selling candles and other fun things, and we’re definitely not mad about it.
On Thursday, the actor-turned-entrepreneur released a line of reading glasses, sunglasses, wallets, phone cases, and candles on the new online platform Starlite Shop. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Starlight Shop is a fun place for celebrities to sell their own designs. The shop expects dozens of celebrities to sell their things, but Banderas is the first to jump on board. And it sounds like he’s pretty pumped about it.
"The creation of your own personality is very important, Banderas said in an announcement about his new line. “And this can be applied to film or fashion.
This isn’t completely out of left field for Banderas. Back in 2015, he started taking design classes at Central Saint Martins in London, and in 2016, he released his first line of menswear with Selected Homme, according to Mashable.
Here are a few of the items for sale:
That’s right, you can have your very own Antonio Banderas candle AND pen. Life is good. Here’s the kicker — shipping to the U.S. isn’t available at this point, so for now, only European Banderas fans can get their fill of his cool sunglasses and candles. The rest of us will just wait here.
