Stella Banderas Griffith is in news, not for her projects, but for another reason. Stella has decided to drop off her last name “Griffith”. She has filed a petition in court for the same. She even says she doesn’t typically use her last name when referring to herself. Stella is a 25-year-old model and entrepreneur. She’s the daughter of Melania Griffith and Antonio Banderas. She has filed the petition in Los Angeles. She has asked a judge to remove her famous last name according to the petition.
Stella Banderas Griffith Files A Petition To Remove Her Last Name
Stella was born Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith. However, she is seeking to change her name to Stella del Carmen Banderas.
According to the petition, she wants to change her name to shorten it a bit. She plans to do so by removing the extra last name. Stella says, “As well, I typically do not use ‘Griffith’ when referring to myself or on documents. So, dropping the name would match my regular use.”
Stella was born in Spain and raised by famous parents who were always in the limelight. Her parents got married in 1996. But they split in 2015. However, they’re close friends. Stella made her acting debut in the 1999 film Crazy in Alabama. It was directed by her father. Also, her mother starred in her debut film!
Stella is the half-sister of Dakota Johnson and Alexander Bauer on her mother’s side. More recently, Griffith shared an Instagram post wishing her daughter Stella a happy national daughters day. In the post, Stella was with Dakota.
So, it looks like there are not any issues with changing her last name. It’s just that she wants to shorten her name a bit to make it convenient for her! Earlier this month, the father-daughter duo walked the red carpet in matching black outfits. They look dashing!
