Don’t let his macho exterior fool you. Antonio Banderas is willing to do anything to understand women, including become one for a day.

The 47-year-old actor was promoting his new movie The Code at a press conference in Bulgaria when he admitted he’d like to swap places to see life from a female perspective.

When asked to choose whose shoes he’d like to fill, he didn’t opt for his wife, Melanie Griffith. Instead, he said: “Maybe Mimi [Leder, the film’s director], just to understand what she is going through.”

The heist movie hits theaters next fall. Banderas will star with Morgan Freeman.
