Singer Britney Spears might just get a cameo in the next “Puss In Boots” movie once Antonio Banderas hears this news!
The 41-year-old pop star took to Instagram on Thursday night to recall her pre-fame days, including her first music video that featured the 62-year-old Spanish actor as her love interest!
Britney Spears Reveals Antonio Banderas Was ‘Always My Love Interest’ At 13!
In her latest Instagram post, the “Hold Me Closer” singer decided to open up about her pre-fame days while sharing a black-and-white photo that she doesn’t even remember taking!
“I never even knew I took this pic !!!” Britney wrote in the caption. “I was 13 years old … the same year I used to make music videos with my friends at their house !!!”
It looks like Britney’s friends were only girls, as she added, “We never had a real guy to play our love interest so we used our imaginations 😏😏😏😏😏🤓🤓😹😹😹😹 !!! We would cut out a picture of our favorite guy from a magazine and hold the 200 dollar video camera over his face so the video would have a love interest !!!!”
Believe it or not, Britney reveals that “The Mask Of Zorro” actor was “always” her love interest, especially in her first music video, which she called “the worst thing I have ever seen in my entire life.”
“My first pretend video was ‘Dreamlover’ by Mariah Carey outside with my mom’s heels on while walking through a garden with an umbrella !!!” Britney recalled. “Antonio Banderas was always my love interest and the video was the worst thing I have ever seen in my entire life🙄🙄🙄 !!!”
Although Britney isn’t a fan of the music video, there are sure a lot of fans who would love to see it! It’s not known what actually became of the video, or if one of Britney’s childhood friends still has it lying around somewhere!
Britney Spears Admits She Watches ‘Puss In Boots’ ‘Almost Every Night’
About an hour before her music video admission, the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer took to Instagram again to show the actor showing off a latte with the “Puss In Boots” character drawn into the top in the foam. She made sure to tag both @antoniobanderas and @nickykim2807 to give proper credit for the photo.
In the caption, Britney wrote, “I watch this movie almost every night !!! Puss in Boots👢!!! So when I saw this picture pop up on my phone I was like hmmmm 🤔 !!! That’s pretty cool 😉😉😉 !!!”
Given how the “Toxic” singer feels about “Puss In Boots,” fans can only wonder how she feels about “Shrek,” or the Donkey spin-off that Eddie Murphy wants to see.
Eddie Murphy Wants To Star In A Donkey Spin-Off!
Back in January, the 61-year-old actor told Etalk that he would be open to starring in another “Shrek” animated film and reprising his character of Donkey. “I’d absolutely be open if they ever came with another Shrek,” he said. “I’d do it in two seconds. I love Donkey.”
He also threw a little shade at “Puss In Boots,” saying that Donkey deserved a spin-off more than the character voiced by Antonio Banderas. “Puss In Boots” got his first film in 2011, while “Puss In Boots: The Last Wish” came out last year.
“You know, they did Puss in Boots movies. I was like, ‘They should have done a Donkey movie,” Murphy continued. “Donkey is funnier than Puss in Boots. I mean, I love Puss in Boots, but he ain’t funny as the Donkey.”
Murphy then tried to plead his case to DreamWorks Animation, the studio behind the “Shrek” franchise, saying, “That’s Dreamworks Animation. They have to want to do it. Dreamworks, if you all want to do it, just call me. I’m ready. I’m sitting and ready to do Donkey.”
Antonio Banderas Says ‘There Is Probably Gonna Be Another’ Shrek Film!
When “Puss In Boots: The Last Wish” screened at the Red Sea Film Festival, Antonio Banderas actually hinted that a fifth “Shrek” movie might be on the way! He told Deadline that “I’ve been with this cat for almost 20 years,” referring to his “Puss In Boots” character, who appeared in the second “Shrek” movie in 2004, three years after the 2001 original.
“Shrek the Third” came out in 2007 and “Shrek Forever After” was released in 2010, more than a decade ago. Although it’s been a while since a “Shrek” movie was released, Banderas is still hopeful that the giant green ogre will make his return to the big screen.
“The first time I did Puss In Boots, I was working on Broadway, so I did my first session there. I’ve done five movies now. There is probably gonna be another, and Shrek is probably coming back,” he teased, although Dreamworks Animation has yet to formally announce another “Shrek” film…or a Donkey spin-off!
