There are some myths that need to be debunked. One of those is that which states footballers have no interests beyond the pitch. Atlético Madrid defender Filipe Luis appeared on Late Motiv, a programme presented by Andreu Buenafuente, to demonstrate that.
Filipe Luis discusses love of cinema
The 32-year-old appeared as a guest of Quique Peinado. The journalist revealed that Luis was "the person who knows more about cinema than anyone I know, and I know a lot of film geeks."
Later in the interview, Filipe Luis admitted that he has a personal collection of more than 2,000 films, which he watches in a private cinema in his house.
"I did all sorts of crazy things to get hold of some of those films," he admitted.
Beyond the cinema screen, the former Chelsea and Deportivo player discussed his passion for science while simultaneously solving a Rubik's cube.
