What do women want? Antonio Banderas is willing to find out – even if it means a sex change.

At a press conference in Bulgaria to promote his new heist movie The Code, the Zorro actor, 47, admitted he “would like to be a woman, just to give it a try and maybe understand them a little bit better,” Reuters reports.

While one might guess the sultry Spaniard might prefer to temporarily switch places with his wife Melanie Griffith, her name wasn’t the first that sprang to his mind.

“I don’t know which one. Maybe Mimi, just to understand what she is going through,” he joked, referring to The Code director Mimi Leder (Deep Impact).

The Code, due out next fall, stars Banderas and Morgan Freeman as thieves who steal Fabergé eggs and run afoul of both the Russian mob and U.S. police.
