Los Angeles, Apr 10 (PTI) Antonio Banderas has described the experience of working on the series “Genius: Picasso”, which is based on the life of legendary painter Pablo Picasso, as “incredible liberation” as it enabled him to escape from the labels that quite often get attached to an actor.

The 57-year-old actor said it would be “pathetic” for him to keep on playing “sexy boy” characters.

”I found incredible liberation in that (playing Picasso) because you escape from certain labels that people put you in – you know, the Latin lover or other thing, you know, is fine for a while and it’s fun for a while.

”But I’m 57. I don’t want to be the sexy boy my whole life, because that would be pathetic,” Banderas told CBS.
