Antonio Banderas says he’s flattered to have lent his voice to the character Puss in Boots in the animated “Shrek” films, especially because the role is in a language not his own. “The fact that I arrived in this country without knowing a word in English and that years later they call on me only for my voice makes me feel proud,” the Spanish film star told The Associated Press in a recent phone interview. Banderas made his United States film debut in 1992 in “The Mambo Kings.” He received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005. Besides talking for his new role, he also gets to sing.
