Stella Banderas has come of age, and many people see a striking resemblance between her and her famous grandmother, Tippi Hedren.
Stella was born in Marbella, Spain, as Stella del Carmen Banderas Griffith in 1996, the same year her parents, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith married.
The 24-year-old actress looked exactly like her mother as a little girl, but she grew up to mirror her grandmother, Tippi, Melanie's mother. A quick glance at her Instagram account proves it.

MUCH LIKE TIPPI HEDREN
Stella appears to have inherited the legendary actress' alluring eyes, as well as her full lips and nose. People have noticed the similarity in her Instagram photos, with many pointing out just how much she looks like a young Tippi.
Stella sends fans in a frenzy whenever she posts her pictures on social media. For instance, her followers always comment on how closely she resembles her grandmother. One Instagram user commented:
“I can see you have your grandmother Tippi’s eyes.”
A FIT BOMBSHELL
On March 1, Stella posted various pictures to her Instagram page, and one of them was an incredible snapshot of her posing while flaunting her fit figure.
She donned a graphic short-sleeved crop top and had her long straight locks down as she gave a bold and confident look to the camera. Meanwhile, fans couldn’t get enough of her bombshell avatar, and one of them commented:
“Beautiful like her mother and sister.”
THROWBACK TIME WITH HALF-SISTER
One of Stella’s pictures is kind of surprising since she doesn’t often post photos of herself. In this throwback picture, she posted to Instagram in 2017, Stella can be seen sharing the same frame with her half-sister Dakota Johnson, 31.
Stella mostly stays out of the spotlight, but when she decides to step in, she leaves a lasting impression. Her social media pictures show off her incredible features and give a glimpse into her booming career.
FIRST GOLDEN GLOBE APPEARANCE
The 24-year-old bombshell attended her first Golden Globe Awards as a little girl. In 2004, Stella, then seven, looked adorable in a pale pink gown as she held onto mom Melanie’s hand on the red carpet while her half-sister, Dakota, stood on their mother’s side for the sweet photoshoot.
Today, Stella and Dakota are close and were even spotted grabbing smoothies together in L.A. in 2019. Lately, Stella graced the cover of Glamour Spain for their September 2020 issue and shared the stunning cover photo on her Instagram page.

Melanie and Antonio, who announced their split in June 2014, have remained friends. However, they celebrate their daughter Stella's milestones together.
In 1999, Stella appeared in "Crazy Alabama" with her mother. She also did an episode of "Celebrity Page" in 2015. At this point, Stella has only ever appeared in a few films. She has yet to move into Hollywood and take up after her mom and grandmother's fame but has recently landed a modeling campaign.
