EXCLUSIVE: Antonio Banderas on Working with Salma Hayek Again in "Puss in Boots"

We got some insider news on Dreamworks upcoming Puss in Boots we're excited to share with you! First of all, we all knew that Salma Hayek has been cast as the female counterpart to Antonio Banderas' Puss in Boots. But we can now share her character's name: Ms. Kitty Soft Paws. She's a thief rivaled only by Boots and her special gift is an incredibly soft touch that allows her to lift almost anything without being detected. How cute is that?

One person who is super excited about Salma's role is Banderas himself, who said, "We started in Desperado and to work together again with Salma was a beautiful experience."

Also making an appearance in the upcoming film? Guillermo del Toro! See if you can identify the famed Mexican director in the movie when it's released this fall (hint: he's very critical of a certain acquaintance of Boots'). Until then, we're just going to have to calm down with some cat nip.

What movies are you looking forward to this year?

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
