London: Actor Antonio Banderas says he is not worried about the effects of ageing showing on his face as they prove he has lived a life.

The 51-year-old Spanish actor is happy with the way his looks are maturing as he gets older, and doesn't mind lines appearing on his face, reports say.

"I prefer to let life take me wherever it's going to take me. Wrinkles are welcome, because they mean I have lived a life. If I looked in the mirror and saw somebody I was not supposed to be, then I would freak out," Banderas said.

The 'Desperado' star who is married to Melanie Griffith credits his healthy diet for his good looks.

"I smoke, which I shouldn't do, but I do yoga and I think I eat well. And I try to be in harmony with my life. I am not too anxious to get anywhere anymore. When you are content, I think it helps you feel good and to look good too," Banderas added.
