Melanie Griffith has just ended her marriage to Antonio Banderas in December after being together for 19 years.
“I’m having a very introspective time right now,” said Griffith in an interview with PEOPLE. “It’s an interesting time.”
“My kids are all great. They’re beautiful people. I’m single, and lonely, and bored, and confused – but then at the same time, totally curious. It’s almost like I have to throw myself out of the nest.”
Not wanting to be melancholy, the 58 year-old actress said, “Life is moving on.. My youngest (daughter), Stella, is starting USC in August, in two weeks. She’ll be moving out, out. She’s got a dorm and everything. So that’s kind of a different thing. I won’t have any kids at home.”
She then talked about her other two children, Alexander Bauer and Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson “They’re old enough to have kids now, so I should have grandchildren soon. Then they can come over – and then go home,”
Griffith also admitted in the interview that seeing her ‘kids with their own kids is going to be the thing.’
At the moment, the actress is trying to find her own peace as she went back to her house in Aspen which she said, “it’s in the middle of nowhere and it’s at 10,000 feet in the Rockies,”
“It really has a way, for me being there, that is very spiritual and grounding, and sort of lets you think clearly. Because here [in Los Angeles] it’s so busy all the time and there’s so much traffic and everybody’s so stressed.” she continued.
When she was asked about her dating life, she said, “I’m not really looking, I’m just being, and I figure if I’m meant to have another relationship, I will, and if I’m not, then I won’t.”
