Spanish actor Antonio Banderas has ruled out the option of ever appearing in a movie with his wife Melanie Griffith again - branding the opportunity a "motion tabloid".

Banderas embarked on a romance with Griffith after meeting her on the set of 1995 film Two Much, but insists it's the first and last time they'll share a movie screen.

He says, "I would like, actually, to direct her again. But I think it's very predictable when husband and wife are on the same stage and on the same screen.

"People like it, but they like it almost like a motion tabloid. They don't get into the story."

Griffith, however, has a far more simple explanation for her husband's resistance.

She adds, "He's being very nice - he doesn't want to!"
