Although Messi is usually more reserved and it is rare for him to show this type of support,

he has an excellent relationship with Darín

, as the actor revealed several times in different interviews.

The friendship was born while Darín was living in Barcelona and was presenting a play there.

Messi went to see him on several occasions. 

In 2015, on another occasion,

Messi had gone to see the actor at the Tívoli Theater

in Barcelona, ​​to witness the play "Scenes from married life";

that Darín starred with Erica Rivas.

That time 10 invited him to lunch at his house, where they shared several photos on social networks.

There who took the opportunity to take a photo was Antonella Rocuzzo.

For the 30th birthday of 10, in 2017, Darín was one of the celebrities who was in the traditional video with greetings. 

Darín also has an incredible anecdote with Messi,

on a night where he acted as a driver in an empty Barcelona.

"It was a Tuesday night, eleven thirty at night... and there was no one. The girl who was accompanying me, who was from the press, asked me the commonplace, which was if I knew Messi. I asked her I said yes, to him and his family," said Darín.

"And telling him all this, while we were walking looking for a taxi I heard 'Ricardo?', I turned around and it was Messi. He took me to the hotel in his car, a big truck and he was driving. The funny thing is that he recognized me from behind

! "

, said Darín in an interview with the newspaper Marca

Messi also had praise on some occasions for the actor.

In a recent interview, before the last World Cup,

he confessed that he was a fan of Argentine cinema and his favorite films were "El Hijo de la novia"

and "Nueve Reinas", both starring Darín.

This Sunday,

"Argentina, 1985" lost to the German "All Quiet on the Front"

at the BAFTA awards ceremony in London, one of the last awards of the season before the Oscars.

The war movie is the top favorite in the installment that will take place on March 12 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.

It is that in addition to competing in the shortlist

for 'best foreign film',

it is also nominated for the 'best film' award.

It is difficult but, just like what happened in Qatar,

we choose to believe.
