7. Canto told Spanish news agency EFE that he just wanted to explore his artistic side before becoming an MP (member of parliament).

“I’m aware of the fact that I live in a society where people are more shocked by seeing an MP’s backside than by one who robs or is paid under the table.”

“If you’re asking me if I would have played a gay character in sex scenes while being an MP, the answer is yes. I need to express my artistic side, otherwise I go a bit mad.”

8. He has also been tweeting his support for the film.
