Actor Antonio Banderas, who lends his voice to the lead character in Puss In Boots, says only people who "love" acting will be successful in movies. The 51-year-old actor's new movie is a spin-off from the Shrek franchise.

Banderas hopes it will encourage people to pursue a career like his. He has given some words of wisdom on how to succeed in Hollywood.

"After all these years as a professional, there is really only one thing that actually moves you. And it's love for what you do. You have to forget about the result of that and what it's going to bring you in your life you have to make sure that your passion - if you're making movies is between action and cut or in the theatre is in between when the curtain goes up and your bow at the end," he was quoted as saying.

"Anything else, or the part of your life attached to that, it may be very distracting and at some point just love for what you do and telling stories to other people," he added.

Meanwhile Holly-wood diva Salma Hayek, 45, who co-stars with Banderas in Puss In Boots, says she has a rule never to pay for her designer outfits and relies on freebies from fashion bosses to fill her closet "I borrow my clothes. I get them free and I'm too lazy to go out and look for my own," she says. "You think I'm going to spend my money on clothes? No way! I have a small house so I borrow everything except art, that's what I love."
