Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas was terrified after knowing that pop singer Madonna likes him as he believes that she is too "powerful" to have an affair.
The Material Girl famously flaunted her crush on Banderas in her outrageous documentary "In Bed With Madonna" released 1991. The documentary saw her flirting with a shy Banderas at a party in Spain.
However, the actor admits he gets nervous in Madonna's presence because he couldn't speak English.
"I couldn't speak English at the time. She said a lot of things at the table when we were having dinner - I couldn't understand s**t. I was just flipping out that I was sitting down close to Madonna. She was very famous already, and we were just local people," contactmusic.com quoted the 50-year-old as saying.
"It was kind of flattering when somebody said, 'She likes you, a lot.' I said, 'Oh, really? I've no idea what I should do about this. I mean, I'm married (to first wife, Ana Leza).' So, nothing happened. I was afraid of it at the time, because she was a very powerful woman. I didn't want to be Madonna's boy. For good or for bad, I just wanted to have my own career," he added.
