Melanie Griffith hasn’t had a serious romance since calling it quits with Antonio Banderas six years ago, but her doting ex-hubby is determined to spice up her love life. “Antonio hates seeing Melanie so lonely, and he’s got a ton of single male friends around her age who he wants to set her up with,” an insider tells.
The Pain and Glory star, 60, who’s gushed that the actress, 63, is his “best friend,” “still loves Melanie and always will,” shares the insider, adding that Antonio hopes she’ll find the same kind of happiness he has with longtime girlfriend Nicole Kimpel, 39. “Melanie’s close friends have tried to find her a good match, but they’ve had no luck,” the insider adds. “Melanie is beyond touched that Antonio wants to see her settle down with someone who’s worthy of her!”
