Antonio Banderas' new love interest has been identified as Dutch investment consultant Nicole Kimpel

The Mask of Zorro star, 54, announced his split from Melanie Griffith, his wife of 18 years, in June (14) and he has wasted no time in moving on with his love life.

The Spanish actor was previously spotted dancing and flirting with a mystery brunette during a dinner date in Saint-Tropez, France in August (14), and they were photographed hiking together along the coast of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the south of France last week (begs01Sep14).

She has now been identified as Kimpel and an eyewitness tells America's Star magazine, "Antonio seemed so relaxed with Nicole. They seemed absolutely smitten. They were laughing and obviously having a great time!"

Meanwhile, Griffith appears to be keen to get on with her life as well - she has removed a tattoo tribute to her husband and was spotted househunting in the Hollywood Hills last week (ends05Sep14).
