Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith is expected to become Stella del Carmen Banderas soon. The daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas has revealed that she has filed a lawsuit to have her last name shortened. The 25-year-old is said not to disagree with her mother, but only wishes she had a shorter name.
She recently explained, “I never use Griffith when talking about myself or filling out paperwork. So giving up the last part of my name would be more in keeping with my everyday use.” . The only daughter of Antonio Banderas has already deleted the mention “Griffith” in his name Instagram, even if it remains present in his pseudo. She also regularly shares photos of her parents on social networks.
