March 27 (UPI) -- Antonio Banderas says he's doing well after having a heart attack in January.
The 56-year-old actor told reporters Saturday at a film festival in his hometown of Malaga, Spain, that he had three stents put in his arteries after a heart attack Jan. 26, but denied the incident was "serious" or "dramatic."
"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.
