Antonio Banderas, recalled the time in the 1990s when he was her No. 1 crush, that he was not aware of that fact.

The 59-year-old actor was asked about the “Like a Prayer” singer’s 1991 fictional documentary, “Madonna: Truth or Dare” during a recent interview on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show.” In the film, Madonna makes clear that she is incredibly attracted to the “Desperado” actor.

During the interview, Banderas admits that he not only had no idea that she has a crush on him, but didn’t even know that he was in her docu-drama.

“I was finished, The Mambo Kings, here in Los Angeles, california, and she called me on the phone one day. I thought someone was just making a joke on me,” Banderas recalled. “Because I took it with my phone in my hotel room, and she was. I couldn’t believe it.”

“They said, ‘look, I want to show you, this is the film you’re doing,” he continued. “And I said,” What?” What is a documentary? What are you talking about?'”

Banderas made sure to note that the Madonna gave him the opportunity to be removed from the film, as he was not satisfied with the manner in which he was portrayed, but he ultimately decided that he didn’t mind being seen as a heartthrob to star as big as her.

As Entertainment Tonight notes, the actor, was married to Ana Leza at the time, but they later split up. He married Melanie Griffith in 1996, the same year he co-starred with Madonna in “Evita.”

Madonna complained about the poor timing of Banderas’ marriage in 2015, in an interview with Howard Stern when asked if she has ever hooked.

“I just wish … I had a huge crush on him, [but] he’s the one with Melanie Griffith. She never left his side.”
