ANTONIO BANDERAS
Spanish heart-throb Antonio Banderas is one of fatherhood's most enthusiastic proponents. "I've learned more from my daughter than she has learned from me," revealed the swashbuckling Zorro star in one magazine interview. "I've discovered, finally, what unconditional love is. Since she was born I wake up with a new joy and challenge called Stella." And the daddy's girl is keen to elaborate why her famous father is the best: "I like to ski with my dad, and I like that he plays the guitar and always has time to be with me."

Antonio, who is also step-dad to wife Melanie's kids, Dakota, 16, and Alexander, 21, from her previous marriages, admits he's not strict. His approach to parenting Stella is to "talk to her like she's an adult. That way she doesn't hide things. Everything is open."

The on-screen romantic hero also has a few tips for his stepson with regards to the opposite sex. "We communicate about women," he says. But he admits to already being wary when it comes to Stella's future boyfriends. "I will look them up and down," he laughs. "I'll have the sword out and demand, 'What do you want from her?'."
