Antonio Banderas dropped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss his latest movie, The 33.

Stephen Colbert Proves Antonio Banderas Makes Anything Sound Sexy

The film is based on the true story of the 2010 Chilean miners incident, when 33 miners were trapped underground for 69 days following an earthquake. Banderas, 55, plays Mario Sepúlveda, one of the miners.

Despite the seriousness of the film’s subject matter host Stephen Colbert found a way to significantly lighten the mood, much to the delight of his audience. “You have one of the most distinctive voices in Hollywood,” Colbert said to the actor. “You can make anything sound sexy and seductive.”

Not happy to simply leave Banderas with the compliment, Colbert decides to put his theory to the test.

Colbert gives Banderas three phrases to recite in his signature sultry tones, saving the best for last with “I’m Jeb Bush and I’m running for president.”

“That one is the most challenging,” Colbert said of the phrase. “It is,” agreed Banderas, while still somehow managing to pull it off.
