Legendary Spanish film director Pedro Almodóvar said the Italian leader is a “Homophobe obsessed with women.”

Pedro Almodóvar believes that Berlusconi’s bunga-bunga scandal allowed the Prime Minister to “brag about his manhood,” and that as a media image, Berlusconi is an interesting figure.

“News about him [Berlusconi] are more about sex, than politics,” said the director, who was in Rome promoting his last movie “The Skin I Live In.”

At the persistence of the interviewer to pry Almodóvar’s opinions on Berlusconi, the filmmaker replied: “About your head of Government… I have more questions than answers”.
