"I suffered a heart attack on January 26, but it wasn't serious and hasn't caused any damage," Banderas said, according to the BBC.

"It hasn't been as dramatic as some have written," he added, according to TMZ.

Us Weekly had reported in January that Banderas was working out at his home in Surrey, England, when he experienced severe chest pains and was taken to the hospital. The actor later posted a photo of himself with girlfriend Nicole Kimpel.

"Enjoying nature after a startle. Besos," he tweeted Jan. 30.

Banderas is known for starring in Evita and The Mask of Zorro, and is slated for Black Butterfly with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Unchained with Adrien Brody. He shares 20-year-old daughter Stella with ex-wife Melanie Griffith.
