Antonio Banderas

LORELAI (to Mrs Shales): Why don’t you go up to your room and have a fabulous bubble bath, and I’ll send up some wine and a masseuse who bears a remarkable resemblance to Antonio Banderas.

Antonio Banderas (born 1960) is a Spanish actor. Successful in Spain during the 1980s, he made the transition to Hollywood in 1992 with The Mambo Kings. His breakthrough role was in Philadelphia (1993). His biggest success in the late 1990s was playing the title role in the action film The Mask of Zorro (1998).

Lorelai uses the term masseuse incorrectly: a masseuse is a woman who performs massage for a living; a man in the same role is known as a masseur.

  1. It was also strange the masseur’s name was Rory!
    When Lorelai re-enters the inn after her conversation with Mrs. Shales, she says to an unnamed employee at the desk “Could you send Rory up to room 12 in about 20 minutes? Thanks.”


    1. It’s actually Maury that’s the name of the masseur – short for Maurice or maybe Mauricio (since he looks like Antonio Banderas?). I can understand you mishearing it, though!
